There Is A Lump In My Throat!

There is a lump in my throat?

There is a lump in my throat!
I feel it all the time, I feel it right now.
I feel it when walking, sitting, laughing even sleeping.
Singing seems to swallow it for a moment, then it’s back.
I should scream, but tears are lazy to fall
I have shared much to many;
For my sons, for my country, for education, for change,
For my continent, for my sisters, for my brothers, for my friends,
For promise-land, for the children and for the world
The lump will not Go Away!

There is a lump in my throat!
Hope keeps fading away but keep resurfacing again
There is a struggle going on inside; to hope or not to hope
Seasons have changed before my eyes
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter—I am still confined
They say hope never kills, so I hope.
But hope does not take away this lump in my throat

There is a lump in my throat!
Maybe it’s because I am tired of being a foreigner
Maybe I am tired of speaking a foreign language
Maybe I am tired of being exiled
Maybe I am tired of fighting the same fight over and over
Maybe it’s freedom I want
Maybe I am tired of being a victor
Maybe it’s the waiting
Maybe it’s the drastic transformation going on inside
I don’t know, but all I know is that,
There is a lump in my throat!
