We Need You to Lead Us

You are playing too small

A house.
A car.
And many mistresses.

Is that all you can think about
Is that the sky of your ambition
Is that all your God given mission on earth

A house in low grade cement
Which will crumble in a generation

Look the thousands years pyramids
Look the hundreds years churches
Look the millennial tombs of our ancestors

Aren’t you the descendant of the pyramid builders
Aren’t you the offspring of empire builders

A second hand car
Are you a second hand citizen of this world
Your kids wear only second hands
How they to become first world citizen

Our sisters are all prostitutes for you
As you prostitute to get your smelly cash
You want to prostitute all of us
How do you call a nation of prostitutes

Everything wears a price tag for you
You know pride no more
Shame has vanished in your conscience

All your awaken energy is spent in search of lust
Your free time is best spent in bars
Your kids never see you
Your wife barely see you
The bottle owns you
Your loyalty is for the brothers only

You are playing too small

Who’d build for the future
Who’d write the fairytale books for our kids
Who’d create the legends for our teens
Who’d be the model our grown ups

You are playing too small

Even if you win, it won’t change much
For your kids
For your fellow men and women
For this generation
Neither for the ones after

You are playing too small

Play to win the biggest prize
Play to be at the top of the food chain
Play to be the one who calls the day
Play to be the one who grants favors
Play to leave path for generations

In thousands years wanna see your house standing
In hundreds years wanna see you car in a museum
Your kids wanna read your autobiography
Future generations wanna sing your name

Now you are playing too small.
Play to make a difference!
