THEIR TOLERANCE IS OUR TOLERANCE By Hassan Ibn Maruf & Olatunde Azeezah (PenTalks)
Earth a platform for all Human Race, full of Space
Where many entities fix their Face, relate with friends and associate
But why the sudden alarm on our faith been discriminate and when we keep silence they say we retaliate
Indeed should our silence be their tolerance?
I’ve heard the black and white speak falsehood truth
Perhaps the flowers that ought to spread fragrance of unity as maneuver to a stench of shattered broomstick.
We once Eagle the King of Bird until the imperialist took our Bed
Freedom of speech is easy to teach but their foul mouth is not easy to keep
So the system of faith has tumble and if you try to grumble you crumble
Is it true their tolerance is our tolerance?
I heard tales of death that silence the lips
That instill light upon the darkness they feed us
Freedom of speech?
It’s just the illusion we’re trapped in, for our voice is forever caged in fear of their tyranny.
Their intolerance has probed the fury of nights
Hatred of days
Tears of fate
And the dried bones of hope
Their intolerance has made our feet firm in the valley of the truth
Our heart has swallowed consistency
Breaking the Jaws of their threat
We fear no one except for Allah
We fight and fight
We confront their fright, believing our Creator is our might
Even though things remains so tight
They thought we are modern slaves of their slavery
The excavated ghost of our bravery
We are firm, strong and hopeful
For to Allah belongs all Glory.
