A BETTER LEADING

A BETTER LEADING (By Richard Chongo)

The matches and the candle I keenly give
In your hands with trust and hope.
For eternal light of my country, I fought.
But the darkness, it longed and paces forward.
Now that life ticks the end, rise and do.
Don't fight to make it stop.
The claque so many, you won't conquer.
Talk but not too much; it will still roll.
A great talker is a great liar.
Don't look too good nor too wise.
Through your actions, let them praise you.
Light the candle; light its way.

Wisdom and knowledge I leave
In your pockets with honour and joy.
Since mine time is over,
For your prosperity and not destruction, I pray.
On milk and honey that you should float.
To you, the advice from the bottom of my heart, I give.
The warmth of our hearts to prolong.
Translation of your good to bad, many will do.
Being a crystal, many will stand
For you,
By you and
In you.
