Liberia Bleed In Tears

Liberia bleed in tears She bleeds at the ascension of evil sons of the soil to higher offices, In the name of development squandering and laundering her wealth are but a few causes of her unending hemorrhage of tears She bleed in tears Liberia bleed in tears As if fourteen evil years of civil war That left her desolate and torn were not enough lessons for her sons Yet she’s been stab and bitten in the back By her own children resulting to decades of wailing Her sounds goes forth through all the earth Echoing the voices of the unheard cries of her patriots She bleed in tears Liberia bleed in tears At the mournings and wailing of the poor who become poorer Weak who become weaker, sick who become the rich grow richer Feeding themselves to the national cake She bleed in tears Liberia bleed in tears At the unending torments of her sons Who come in day after day in the name of patriotism Just to discover they were more worse than the worst More evil than the devil, fearful than fear, dangerous than danger They were enemies in disguise with corruption, nepotism, deceit, and blasphemous policies lurking beneath their agenda She bleed in tears Liberia bled in the past She bleeds now Will she bleed tomorrow? Is in our hands to correct now our failings Or cripple fast the future Till then Liberia bleeds still
