You are capable

Meshack Bwoyele Keya 1960 (Vihiga)

there are such burdens big or small

none exists without having some

yours looks quite big to roll

similarly others percieve the same

be it bills in the mall

Or sicknesses in the family to blame

we all have a share of the toll

and all are part of the game

 



cry not seeking help

lean not on other's shoulder

your burden in your finger is pulp

do not make your wail louder

you can your burden do belp

it be yours to loader

we all have a share of the toll

and all are part of the game

 



you can manage

Just try so hard

Ask God never have you Dodge

he has the power this our dad

no more fretting and rage

try hard and bad

we all have a share of the toll

and all are part of the game
