By Emmanuel Odei Oduro

The struggle has been fierce
Its aftermath evokes tears
But one thing is crystal clear
Quenching the fire the only thing, right
That will ensure our future, bright
Reconciliation, our arbiter must be

We all deemed the struggle a just fight
You were fighting for your right
We were defending our right
Why were we oblivious of the obvious
Allowing selfishness our master be
Leading us sheepishly to self-destruction
Humans of one nation
People with one destination

This mistake, never must we replay
A new heart we must display
Reconciliation the only way out
Reconciliation, our only hope
