My Kenyan Flag This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


The Kenyan flag is not a symbol
Bendera hufuatoupepo
(just there to be blown by the wind)
It is a symbol of a unitedcountry
It is not a symbol of beauty
It is a reminder
It reminds me ofmy sacred duty
black for the people
green for the land
red for the priceof freedom
and white for peace in Kenya
my joy, my pride, my home
andthe shield reminds me
that I am protected,
and that's my flag,
theKenyan flag.
