TELL THEM

Written by: KAYODE ARIYO

Tell them rivers of tears are brewing
Tell them seas of sorrows are drifting
Tell them floods of regrets are flowing
Tell them despair is welling up daily

Tell them the future is apparently bleak
Tell them the sowers sow in bountiful tears
Tell them the reapers reap in plenteous pains
Tell them that starvation lurks in the dark

Tell them at the end of the dark tunnel
Tell them there I see a ray of light
Tell them it is not over with me yet
Tell them I see a helping hand descend

Tell them sorrow may tarry all night long
Tell them joy awaits whoever waits till dawn.
