FOR THIS CAUSE I STAND

By Maha Olubukola Olatokunbo

For this cause I stand,
That all men be treated with,
Equity, fairness and justice they deserve.

With this voice I call,
That all women be shown,
The dignity, respect, love and care they need.

For this reason I cry,
That all children be given,
The food, clothing, shelter and education they crave.

On this issue I state,
That corruption, crime and war,
Be forgotten in the life of all men.

To this end I resolve,
That change and love is all that we need,
To make the world a better place.
