“That dream only needs a speech to bring about the change the world has been waiting for, never be speechless no matter what; you have something to say...” Felix Joseph.o SPEECHLESS! A feeling contends to conquer me Perhaps, I wanting to defeat it Indeed, my irritability of the obvious My contest to make it plain, baffles me My best try, Fry me to cry Helpless my mouth It cries echoes is speechless When truth mutates to odium Falsehood applauded as in a stadium Avalanche of wrongs Beaten into a compendium Corruption celebrated in ovation Justice, yet foreign in a nation In reckless abandon, The games rule is impunity Flaunting absurd rights as immunity Shame like a name Honored as fame Speaking the more They have colonized the peak Your audio, print and visual ranting Concludes you an ant A pens ink, as tears Their brick hearts, quickly ignores What then unlocks their hearts mystery? Power emitting from the army’s canon? Perhaps, the pens might May cause a rethink Yes a reflection amidst the stink Confronts all loudly Speechless is the act of the feel Yet, still I dare to make a speech A speech for my compatriots A speech desiring a change Yes! A speech to propel the speechless Am speechless, yet not lacking in speech Speechless is all it makes me feel A speech can break the chains Being speechless is not a gain It germinates pain, like rain Speak and rule the peak Roar to unseat the freak Shout and alarm the weak Sing a tune, their hearts will break Cry, your tears may cajole compassion Yes! A speech ushers the change The villains abhor a change Truly, a speech moulds them speechless A speech a world desire Lacking in speak, all backfire yet a speech will save the day? Why speechless? Just a speech of change will unveil the dream yes! A dream for real change. Author: Felix Joseph Osaeghemede ;+2348037825027. Written:1-05pm-1-25pm: 10th-06-2008.
