Hues Of Our Lives

Written by: Raymond Emeka-Mbah

Celebration is our nature 
A distinction of pleasure 
Activities of leisure 
In a full count of measure. 

Everybody is celebrating 
With nobody distracting 
For everyone is understanding 
So no one is obstructing. 

Gathered in the neighbourhood 
with a true spirit of brotherhood 
In tune with our adulthood 
Memories of our childhood. 

In our way our brother's keepers 
In no way our brother's killers 
In time of joy the hailers 
In time of sorrow the wailers. 

Togetherness our culture 
In oneness our structure 
Fabrique of our love won't puncture 
The goodness of life shall we capture.
