Include my voice

We are Evan Mawarire


 

We are Evan Mawarire, we are human beings

We are Evan Mawarire , you have arrested us all

We are Evan Mawarire, No longer sure of our future

We are Evan Mawarire, no longer silent and not ready for defeat either

We are Evan Mawarire, taking fear out of the masses

We are Evan Mawarire, they dangle carrots in our faces for the million marches for us to latch on

and sink buton sticks in our bodies and under our feet when we dare to rise.

We are Evan Mawarire , tired of the effects of handout leadership

We are Evan Mawarire, living for non-violence and valuing the cost of dignity in life

We are Evan Mawarire, shaping the voice of the people

We are Evan Mawarire, encouraging citizens forward to become full citizens; who make their leaders account

We are behind the prison walls with him blanketed with hunger, lost dreams and hopes, forced to migrate by our own

We are Evan Mawarire, being the modern slaves of impunity

We are Evan Mawarire, forced to live in poverty, yet we have the people power and the numbers on our side.

We are Evan Mawarire, trading survival to go to battle with a bible and a flag

We are Evan Mawarire motivating and inspiring Zimbabwe to pursue change

We are Evan Mawarire, shaping the narrative of Zimbabwe to make it a better one

We are Evan Mawarire forced to bare the cold night in prison walls

We are Evan Mawarire, sacrificing our comfort in search of hope

We are Evan Mawarire seeking and speaking our truth

We are Evan Mawarire falsely accused of pushing the western agenda every time we ask for food ..

We are Evan Mawarire , searching for an ounce of hope

We are Evan Mawarire, receiving buton sticks and teargas for asking for dignity

We are Evan Mawarire, dragged into poverty by the leaders with dead hearts

We are Evan Mawarire, forced to look our children in their eyes in the absence of provision

We are Evan Mawarire, voicing still

In any position, you are Evan Mawarire;

The police is Evan Mawarire, standing in queues for cash with us

The army is Evan Mawarire, worried about the next source of food

The cross border traders are Evan Mawarire, worried about the cut off of their source of income

The venders are Evan Mawarire, daring the streets just for a sale

The ministers in Government are Evan Mawarire, they too must be tired of  their own corruption

The nurses and doctors are Evan Mawarire, yearning to work with enough resources to serve the people.

The young are Evan Mawarire, looking for space to contribute to the future of their nation

The teachers are Evan Mawarire, struggling to retain the dignity of their profession once more

Our children are Evan Mawarire, looking up to us for a future brighter than our stolen one

Evan Mawarire is not one person

Evan Mawarire is not one pastor

Evan Mawarire is us

We are Evan Mawarire and he is us

Evan is in jail with us ..

 

We are Evan Mawarire, we are human beings
