A global phenomenon
That refuses to fade with time
Like a worldwide plague
It affects every nation
Like disease it causes nothing but harm
Such a plague is caused by the failure of states
To cater for their citizens
Caused by wrong policies and decisions
That result in poverty and depression
Leaving all with a question
What is the cure?
What fiscal policy must be adopted?
Shall we fight alone or together?
What measures must be taken?
Can we escape the economic crisis?
Every nation seeks its salvation
Every man fights for his destiny
My people fight for survival
The youths fight for a future
Pushing forward till the tide turns.
The youth are the future
Drawing strength and faith from above
Pushing and praying until something happens
Keeping the candle of hope burning
