We chain ourselves,
imprison our thoughts,
silence our voices,
and watch injustice slowly rape our independence
and freedom before our very eyes.
Then claim 'what can WE do?'
Why fight for freedom
wen we ourselves made it a burden?
See we are not truly free
until we un-swallow the key
that'll untie our binds
and open this cage we've built.
We're not truly free
until we set ourselves free.

This can apply to both external and internal affairs. Of the nafs, in terms of our own 'selves', we've succumbed to the worship of physical desires and allowed ourselves to fall victim to the bonds of material slavery. & As somalis subjugating through violence, we've become slaves amongst ourselves.
