My Shujaa

By Daniel Poet

Wanasema haina haja ublow your own trumpet

Na ndio maana im blowing it on behalf of my forefathers

Na envy wale wote wanamake efforts ili sauti za wanyonge ziskike

Wale wanaona vijana wako na potential

Wale watakubali vijana waongoze si kushinda wametupromise kuongoza kesho.

For long tumekua convinced, mashujaa ni wale wanatoka kwa royal families

Maybe juu wamegrab mashamba and leaving some of us kuwa masquota in our own motherland ati because my grand father hakuwin kwa struggle wakati wa ukoloni

Still to me hao ni mashujaa those who took a bullet for us in this generation

Unfortunately their names hazikuwa recorded……gone too soon

Ironical ku own shamba unazunguka na gari yet in the same land tuko na masquotas

RIP Mzee Flani wa Flani, na Mama nani Nanyake so and so

Moment of silence to the fallen soldiers, male and female

So hii  verse ni ya all mashujaa,

Wale wanapigania jamii,

Its time majina zenu zikuwe featured kwa list of heroes

Tumechoka kuwa common wananchi, we want to own our land too

for so long camera imekua ikimulika likes of Githeri man

Tell me kati ya yule aliamka na njaa kuenda kuvote na yule alipata time akapika hadi akapack food….nani ni shujaa, staki mnijibu, think about it

Mhesh juzi alishangaa ati, tunacomplain juu ya ushuru na hatukuli mshahara

Shujaa ni yule atamfunza about indirect taxes

Yule atamuelimisha kuwa enzi za butter trade ziliisha

And tunatumia currency as a medium of exchange currently

Kwa nini tusipige nduru tukiona wale wanatumia mafuta taa kupika wakiwa na kiburi kuliko those who own magari za diesel,

Shujaa ni yule atadai vitu walitupromise before wakalie izo viti  now that wanatuona washenzi

Shujaa ni yule atasimama apaze sauti aambie King ako uchi

Shujaa ni yule atapigania watoto wa kizazi hajaona

Na si yule atataka kuendeleza jina ya familia yake.
