They Came From Afar
Kennedy O Obohwemu

Ever wondered why
So much trouble's on earth?
Wish they could just fly
Away like pains at birth?

Our mothers know how it is,
The great pains in labour;
But there's great joy after this,
A moment to savour;

Still there's much to ponder,
Just where did they come from?
There's every need to wonder,
For they have filled the drum;

We haven't lost hope,
Just a craving to know;
More easily will we cope,
And gather courage to sow;

It's been on for ages,
But won't last forever;
They come in different stages,
And they prove quite clever;

Now how do we trace it,
And where do we begin?
It seems a direct hit,
Can't stop us singing;

We look up to the sky,
And the mind travels far;
All we can do is sigh,
Our troubles came from afar!
