All I Need Is Humanities Will Towards Unity Or Pronounce Me Dead

Ever been the guy or girl with jokes, walk into the room no eye contact,
Didn’t want conversation, seeking inner peace no violence,
Gotta fit each other’s shoes, no attitude,
Push comes to shove, no one steps foot in another person’s shoes,

Liberian dead president, young man’s uncle,
Father ambassador, young woman ran,
Rebels coming, not afraid of man,
Not afraid of guns,

Demand a future,
Intent on stopping present violence before it repeats,
Been on repeat and no one listens,
Was told ‘don’t bet on humanity’,

10 toes, 10 fingers, 2 eyes,
Mind over matter,
Humanities fate pronounces death,

Reasons denying faith,
Ignoring each other in need,
Faithfully accurate selfishly,
Horrendously vivid remedy,

Watch fireworks drop misleading information,
Wedding caravans never reaching final destination,
World apart, Somali’s arm-length apart,

Proverb goes…
If you are together,
Their are no cracks in the sky you can’t mend…

As we begin the meeting,
Talk willingly,
Not aware of anyone’s unwilling blood spilled struggle,

Behind facial features…
Behind smiles…
Behind eye-liner, mascara, and hair extensions…
Behind retina’s of black, brown, hazel, and blue…

Lays courage, unity,
Asking to be blessed with friends and family…

Which is why I end with my people’s national anthem…
God Bless…

Soomaaliyeey toosoo
Toosoo isku tiirsada ee
Hadba kiina taagdaranee
Taageera waligiinee

Idinkaysu tookhaayoo
Idinkaysu taamaayee
Aadamuhu tacliin barayoo
Waddankiisa taamyeeloo

Sharcigaa isku kiin tolayoo
Luuqadaa tuwaaxid ahoo
Arligiina taaka ahoo
Kuma kala tegeysaan oo

Tiro ari ah oo dhaxalaa
Sideed laydin soo tubayoo
Ninba toban la meel marayoo
Cadowgiin idiin talin oo

Tuldo geel ah oo dhacan baad
Toogasho u badheedhanee
Ma dhulkaas dhanee tegeybaan
Ninna dhagax u tuurayn

Qaran aan hubkuu tumayo
Tooreyda dhaafayn
Oo aan taar samayn karin
Uur kutaallo weynaa

Hadba waxaan la taahaayoo
Togagga uga qaylshaa
Nin dalkiisii cadow taaboo
U tol waayey baan ahayee

Hadba waxaan laa ooyaayoo
Oo ilmadu iiga qubaneysaa
Iqtiyaar nin loo diidoo
La addoon sadaan ahayee

English Translation of Chorus:
National Anthem (1940’s till 2012)

Somalis wake up,
Wake up and support each other
Support your country
Support them forever.
Stop fighting each other
Come back with strength and joy and be friends again
It’s time to look forward and take command
Defeat your enemies and unite once again.
Become strong again and again
