Nigeria!

Nigeria!!

FAITH. PEACE. PROGRESS.

You spoke it. I choose to believe it

Regardless of our reality, that there is no faith!

No faith in the future of our nation

If not why do you rape her so? And fertilize other foreign lands?

Regardless of our reality , that there is no faith

No faith in our teeming and overflowing houses of faith!

Nigeria!

Nigeria!!

You spoke it. I choose to believe it!

Regardless of our reality!

I say, like you have said, you are a nation where peace reigns

With every heave of breath, you breathe in peace…

Inhale… peace…

Exhale… peace

I believe, regardless of the ones who forbid education and their new drones

I believe, regardless of the militia in the state across the river

I believe, regardless of the herds that eat the work of the farmers

And of the hunger that’s surely creeping up on us all as they continue to consume the farms

You spoke peace, and I choose, like the Ostrich to believe it!

Head in the sand, huge body exposed

Foolishly oblivious, because, one thing you have said has to be true now, abi?

Join the conversation, I'd like to know what you think!
