I Feel Lashes On My Soul

I Feel Lashes On My Soul

Ifeel lashes on my body
But mostly I feel them on my soul
You need to make money for your family.
Inflation rate is high.
so high that you can't afford your family, most people can't.
You have no choice but to protest.
You are redundant and your children needs school supplies
school, food, medicine &....
You have no way.
There is not even a death angel to make you free.
One of gold mine worker torched himself to feel flames of hell in this world!
Yet we are asleep.
Those who earn money within a fortnight drive Porsches!
Those who can make loans easily import porsches!
They have connections! What do you have?
You work for a gold mine.
The price of gold increases and increases,
and your share is redundancy and lashes
Even lashes cry blood where they touch one's bony body
But we are deeply, deeply asleep
