Tanzania Simplicity and pure tolerance is written freshly on the walls
Of all the moments of our lives
Hardened virtues are discovered under the burdens of unwritten cultures
Yet beneath the waves of tumult and great difficulties
The world is becoming crazier as the hours pass by
Unimaginable episodes become live
Cunningly camouflaged by greed and power
Unspeakable faiths come to the fore
Making our lives a great question mark to breathe
The politicians have become untrustworthy
And just dangerously greedy for power and wealth
The new technologies become more bizarre
With religion and faiths playing a disturbing role
To play havoc with the poor souls of some citizens.

And the wisest of the World say these are the signs for the World's ending soon
And the Poets of the World hold together their inkly hands
Sit down amicably upon the Crown of their thinking caps
And beseech the World to pull up their brakes
Against the pressures of cultural misuse and political wealth
And think instead with understandable humane hearts
Filled with the fragrance of love and care
And bury forever the differences in their absurd thinking and visions.
