Starting Today

(Moses Gava Featuring Kudakwashe Victor Shoko)

Neither did it start yesterday
Nor yesteryear
A scroll further backward
Deep into the historical era 
I could see him crawling 
During those years of polling

They were born egoistical
I wish I were not
Philanthropic, I would have preferred
To see them holding my trifles
At them I would fire a rifle
Only that my fingers couldn't shoot to kill

With strong aversion
I behold them thriving
Because I'm striving
At them I'm diving
Only to interpose
To forslow them Of course

If jealousy were a disease
Surely I would be among the ill
Opting to get well soon
And so, Starting Today
I will loathe no more
I will cheer evermore

Economically and Socially
I am ailing
Starting Today
I will retreat into writing
My treasure, My company 
Lies in that realm

It's my world,
I create what I want
This world
Is an awfully awful place
I'll shrink from it
And venture into were I find solace

Starting Today
I'll excrete sadness and sorrow
I'll take gulps of happiness,
Today not tomorrow
Things cannot go in your favor always,
Let that sink in

You can't create happiness in someone's world 
You'll be altering its design,
Create your own world
Happiness or solace,
You'll put what you want
Hell or paradise of your making,
How is that?

The orator is Starting Today
When is your today?
Today is today, Start Today
Starting Today, let's all Start Today
You know what you want, get it Today
