NIGERIA !

We are each of us angels with only one wing; andwe can only fly by embracing each other”
(lucretius)

 

NIGERIA!

 

Nigeria! My beloved mother
Bride my father Africa relishes like wine
Celestial prowess crated you a wonder
Adorned a masterpiece of opulence
Rare amongst his many brides he flaunts
With reckless lavish, your endowment charms a lot
Envied, yet celebrated like none other
Holding grounds, Africa’s heart rests your throne
Your offspring, a race branded, yet exceptional
An enigma, words stammer to describe
Yes! That is my mother Nigeria, the African Queen.

 

The super Eagle, so named is your fame
Robust with strength unmatched, just anywhere
Custodian of treasury’s, your ilk lack
Resilient in spirit, dominating the pack
Like a stallion, elegance is your style
Truly a beauty, exuding intelligence
You break the bounds unlearned
As matured wine, celebrated with poise,
You are a toast in every clime
Irresistible is the taste of your charm
Really, A star with myriad facet
Oh! Nigeria, your fillings allure the all.

 

Perfection puts a dearth in all to vie with
Sharing faults and pains,
You cannot be exempt, but bear
Weakness most native with all
With graceful meekness,
A bride, ever willing to learn
Given some leverage, decorated as the best
Contradiction, yet confuse your reality
Upon your shoulders
Strangers climb to denigrate your being
Sometimes a pariah all across
Yet many woo you, even on the cross
Oh! Pretty one just endure the loss
Indeed, a head of you, diamonds a future
A path, prosperous fatness lines.
 

Nigeria, in compassion, exceed Mama Theresa’s
, we hail and uphold thee
, bride in the heart of Africa’s treasury
, giant wired in amazing humility
, a defense, all weakling beacon
, giver, scarcely receiving
, nest for variation, yet no discrimination
, home to all, freedom not limited
, land with great minds, advancing global change
, great beauty, spiced in tasty diversity
, a home not different, depending on your craft of it
, where civility complements piousness

 

Welcome to Nigeria!
Centre of the heart beat of excellence
Abode to promise and real break
God bless Nigeria, queen of Africa
God bless Nigeria, home of the millennium
Ignore the bad press, fraternize the picture
God bless Nigeria, same humanity.

 

A SPECIAL DEDICATION TO MY DEAR COUNTRY ON HER BIRTHDAY (October 1st)

 

“Nigeria is a victim of overdemonization; she is not a Tsunami all must dread, her contents are good and beautiful, let’s give her a chance”
(Felix o Joseph)
