(I’m not tired)

sijachoka kimwili
sijachoka kiakili
sijachoka kutetea walalahoi
sijachoka kuwafikirisha walalahai
sijachoka kuwalaani walalaheri
wewe usichoke


I’m not tired

My body is not tired
My mind is not tired
I’m not tired of defending the penniless
I’m not tired of conscientising the moneyed
I’m not tired of censoring the moneybags
You too, do not tire
