Unknown destination,

Unknown destination we lead,

We have been lost from the start,

Our path was denied,

Leaders divided.

We, Junubiin had hopes,

Invested in bloodshed yet achieved few,

Once we had a leader,

He led us to independence,

To depend on donors.

Will tribes save us from hunger?

Or clans from starvation?

Which leader give us condolence when mourning?

Unknown destination, unknown future,

Unknown leader, unknown problem,

But still moving, hoping to survive.
