YES WE CAN

image

I
Amidst the tiresome run
And the freedom ban
Amidst the horrid fan
And the dirty empty national pan
I know we can
Yes, we certainly can

II
Though there be trails
Though there be pains
Though the future may look
Dull and bleak
I believe we can
Yes we certainly can

III
Over the past years
Though it hasn’t been without fears
We pray for more Grace
We shall struggle mostly in tears
But as a nation,we will face our troubles
Yes,we certainly can

IV
Even through the valleys of our corrupt leaders’ bellies
And the low standard of our future leaders studies
In hope and faith we will tarry
For I believe we can
Certainly we can

V
And we will stand
Against those who are against
Be it those with seats
Even if we be the minority,those with no authority
No say and under legal age,
We still will because we can

VI
Is the nation corrupt
Or the people in it make it so?
Every tree can become a forest
It takes one change in an act by one
And the nation would be what we desire
Yes we can
I believe we can

VII
For we are the solutions we seek
To the conundrums we speak
Of, charred dreams and hopes
Together, can we ignite beneath the smoke
Of eternally burning embers found within
The quiet of our souls, away from the chaotic din
We know we can
Yes we certainly can

VIII
We have a duty
To ourselves, to posterity
Leaving the past behind,
Keeping the future in sight,
Working as one people to make this a netter nation
Because we can,
Certainly because we can

IX
We are the blessed mountains
Flowing in overflowing fountains
We are gold with many coasts
We are beings with hearts which can hatred toast
Melting it into love’s coast
We stand to conquer
We are Ghana
Yes! We certainly can.!

X
Breathe breathe breathe
For the resource we need is to breathe
It is the ink with which we can write gold and cocoa right

– I am saying all need is to breathe. When we have life, we can achieve anything

Let us take flight without err ways

-Let us do what we have to do without difference to get in the way

Our hearts should not cry just critics
Let us cry our actions

– Let us not just breed critics,
But our actions should be the critics

Smile firecrackers
We will cheer, our tears of joy will compensate

-We will celebrate out success to the extent that it will be shown in tears

Let us evoke the adrenaline lost.
Sweat blood and tears we are ready to spend
Arise Ghana

-we should rise with the strength we never used.
We are ready to put in our all

XI
yes we can
we will stand on our toes
as like our old foes
with all arms unfold
to make meaning to our name foretold
long live ghana
God bless Its people

XII
Yes we can
Even find creative use for broken dreams
The way empty cans are transforned into cars
In the hands of innovative toddlers
Even if this change be small
We’ll not despair or discard it all
After all
Little faiths move mountains tall
Yes we can
