Vying for progress and development
Should be anyone’s commitment
Socially we have to contribute
To enable us attain these attributes

Progress and development is required
Hence, generally we can acquire
Better living conditions
With an atmosphere of perfection

Progress and development is necessary
And should be complimentary
Within our community
To ensure social longevity

Progress and development standardize
Overshadows aspects that jeopardize
Bringing about underdevelopment
Hampering some life’s excitement

The absence of progress and development
Causes many to lament
For chaos and opposition
Ignite mass destruction

Actions towards progress and development
Shouldn’t be just a statement
It has to conform to social values
When rights of citizens are valued
For the sake of posterity
We need to evaluate our dexterity
Let’s restore and decentralize
Opting for steps that liberalize
