HEAR THE SOUND AND THE CRY OF THE BOY. By Amb.Olu-Ajayi Maxwell O


When I hear the sound and the cry of the young chap;
It said to me calm down.

From the cry of the boy,
I hear the sound of who will come for me?

Who will shout to the corners of the earth and sound the bell of calm down?

If speaking kindly to plants help them grow
If speaking kindly can pervert violence

Send the message of calm down to homes and the world for peace building.

The tongue of the word calm down has come to bring healing to the land

The lips of the wise boy has crush the spirit of violence

Let us take delight in the wise word calm down.
