Take me back
to that place where the sand meets the ocean
where the mountain touches the sky
where the rich cope with the poor
where the Kalenjin tolerate the Kikuyu
where the Kikuyu tolerate the Luo
where all people fuse as one
one country
one flag
one Kenya

take me back
to that place where boys and girls
have equal opportunity
in a working…harmonious community
far removed from disunity
free from impunity

a place where you and me can live in peace
in harmony,in symphony,in synchrony
appreciating our idiosynchrocies
a place where children have the right to education,where women have the right to property,where citizens are free from poverty

a place where you and me have different views
but do not condemn each other and abuse
on grounds of race,tribe or religion
let us embark on a mission
seek to attain our vision
proudly without inhibition
one Kenya our ambition

a place where there is tolerance of each other
respect for one another

tolerance is the answer to this cancer caused by violence
too many of our people are suffering in silence
why do we sit back and watch them die?
why do we believe in revenge..in an eye for an eye?
why cant we come together seek to touch the sky?

Take me back
to that place where the sand meets the ocean
where the mountain touches the sky
where all people fuse as one
one country
one flag
ONE KENYA
