ALBINOS' SONG

A song of love to all ALBINOS, a song I will sing till my last day. Let every lung help out in singing Let every mouth breath the song I air Let everyone blessed with muscles flex For this is a war we must win Blood must be shed in combat And we have shed enough blood already They have cut our hair They have mutilated our genitals I cry because I have no nails For they have chopped them off Please join hands with me in this battle I can’t win it without your help HELP ME SING THIS SONG For I know you love me SING ALONG THE SONG All the way from Tanzania to Gabon Through Kenya to Nigeria For we are all vulnerable They are killing us I am a seven years old boy from Embu I have provoked no one to deserve this My beloved uncle can do this When we share the same blood Blood is thicker than water My teacher said so But not any more when am who I am I am not safe even at home Sing the song too laud for everyone to hear Because even the police do nothing to help I am an isolated molecule Watching over my shoulders every time someone whispers PLEASE SING THIS SONG TO EVERY LIVING SOUL For this is a war we must win I am a young girl Suffering from the incurable disease I wasn’t born with it I haven’t sinned to get it I got it because I am an Albino Superstitions led him to me He raped me because he believed I’d bring him luck Those are stereotypes How can I heal you if I can’t heal myself? You can’t cure me now But you can give me humble time to live with my dilemma And I will forgive him for what he did And love you for that SING THIS SONG ALONG For this is a war we must win Am just a kid, a mother, a father, a sister, a brother Love me for I love you Like it or not we are stuck in this planet together I fear no death for you have killed me many times I have bled in my heart severely PLEASE SING ALONG For I need you hand and mouth in this battle I am a loving ALBINO With so many tales to tell my kids Don’t take that away from me Protect me because I always gat your back SING ALONG In twitter, facebook, blog, news papers, radio, TV For this is a war we must win SING ALONG MY FRIEND For I am the blessed one Sure you don’t want my extinction For your kids will hate you in years to come SING ALONG AGAIN FOR YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT COULOR IS YOUR NEXT KID I AM AN ALBINO AND YOU CAN’T CHANGE THAT
