The Arab Spring


During the spring of eleven

The Arab world came to life

Because of a wrong election

Someone was killed with a knife


A colonel awakened his rebels

Innocent people lost their lives

The world started to feel trembles

And the Arab world was alive



As well as Egypt and Syria

Tunisia and Bahrain

The freedom cries echoed

Now they were maintained


We hear your cries

From the leaders that oppress you

Wherever they may arise

We all have our value



The suffering is too much

Because of his evil touch

Everyday rallies and fighting

Is proving to be reuniting


The battles are endless

We want these leaders powerless

Whilst the world waits for its end

The conflict continues to ascend.
