I firmly believe that simply stating that you are YES or No to Independence is not good enough…We have to actually start thinking about what it all means for ourselves, and not just think voting for or against Independence is the end of it.
Voting YES is only the beginning, we have to have a vision of what it actually means to us, and a vision for what we aspire to ourselves, for our country and for our own futures.
This is my first ever video blog…. I hope you like it.
and this is the poem that is included as a small part of it…
YES and NO Independence
Saying YES is no Independence
and saying No, Is no Independence at all
I can say that I’ll agree to the right to disagree
And that Is what independence means to me
You can take all your flags and your slogans
You can shout them from the rooftops if you like
You can say that they’re all wrong, and still not know where you belong
When you don’t know right from wrong, or black from white
Some will tell you about Terror and Confusion
That your world will end,in pain and poverty
That you don’t have the brains to think, beyond the kitchen sink
They will tell you, do as your told,and stay with me
Others they will tell you, you have a future
Others they will tell you,just say YES
There’s a land of Milk and Honey, and you’ll be blessed with plenty money
Stay as you are, and you will end up in a mess
So how will you go about believing?
When you don’t believe in anything at all?
You are not part of a sheep fold, and wont do as you are told
And when either way, the writings on the wall
So think for yourself, you have got to have a vision
so think for yourself, If you really want to make things right
If you think it’s time for change, your hopes must rearrange
and see beyond the blackness, to the dawning of your light.
