Did I tell you I can’t sleep?
That my eyes just weep.
That I am just scrolling through feeds
Looking for inspiration.
Looking for motivation.
You can’t understand my aggravation.
You can’t comprehend the desperation.
I’m scared to close my eyes.
So I’m just reading all these lies.
If I sleep I’ll wake up something worse,
or is that just a verse.
Maybe if I stay up till sunrise, I’ll see clearer skies.
Or at least avoid hearing those cries.
Oh look, everyone’s profile is blue.
Just like my feelings, who knew?
I’m following the SPA,
who are part of the FFC,
that are negotiating with the TMC,
who’s being pressured by the RSF.
because of influence from KSA and MBS,
not to mention the UAE and President CC.
That probably got you dizzy.
We lost our leverage, our blood flowing in the Nile like a beverage.
Damn them for trying to tarnish our legacy,
Damn them for bringing fear to our streets,
Damn them for shedding our blood in vain.
By our faith, our peacefulness and our smile, we will succeed.
Didn’t they know they were burying seeds?
How dare they think they could defeat us?
How dare they think they could rule us?
How dare they think they could comprehend us?
Let them move aside and watch us Rise
They can’t block our tide.
