Clouds Cry no More!

by Mochaoa `oa Afrika

Whenever you shed your tears
Your tears of ecstasy
Whenever you weep bitter tears
Bitter tears of misery
To our sorrowful faces
You bring a light
Of emancipation

Whenever your salty tears
Rain down your cheeks
And fall on sun-baked grounds
To water the decaying souls
Our hearts dance
Through a feeling
Of exhilaration

Whenever your tears beat
Against the concrete floors
Making a rhythmic sound
As that of a beat of a drum
We dance with vigour
To your music
Of ressurection

But now you cry no more
You tears of revival are no more
Dry valleys cry facing the sky
And the land so dry
When will you cry again?
To console
Our sunken souls.
