Somaliland: Long Live the Rose That Grew From Concrete


By Aden Deeq
Somalilandsun – They got money for the war but can’t feed the poor. This quote illustrates the hypocrisy of the International Communities who tends on denying Somaliland sovereignty by always putting Somalia first funding them heavily without getting no results in return to the immense investments they pouring into the degrading interim government.
While at the other hand in the prosperous very promising government of Somaliland is left aside denied of all its rights, that when it comes to security level threats they always put it on same stage as Southern Somalia which is far from the fact. If I try to describe Somaliland on how the International Communities and the United Nations turned an blind eye to all the achievements they have achieved democratically fulfilling every required laws and orders of a truly functioning state, I will pick one of the famous poems of Tu-pa c Shakur which says;
The Rose That Grew From Concrete
Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
Aden DeeqAnd I will conclude this article by simply saying to the great and bravest people of Somaliland “Long live the rose (Somaliland)that grew from concrete. When no one else ever cared.” But most importantly his people and leaders cared proving to International Communities wrong.
