The Change We need

A poem by Cheikh Laye

The change we need is not
But the change of our mentality
The change we need is not
But the change of our global vision
The change we need is not
But the change of the whole system
The change we need is not
But the change of our behavior
The change we need is not
The quantity but the quality
The change we need is not
The miracle but the possibility
This change will occur in unity
Because united we stand divided we fall
This change will occur with a return
To our own roots and values
This change will happen to the right man
At the righteous place
Let’s not eat the devil stead
And thereafter be obliged to sing his song
The change we need is not
The assimilation because he who controls your
Mind won’t worry about your achievements
Let’s be part of the solution but not of the problem
Let’s be the light but not the judge
Last but not least, let’s be the example
But not the critic
The change we need is not

But the promotion of African culture
