Nigeria is Independent
The last 59 years were just pretence
Her Independence began October 1st,2020.
Her citizens are green;
Green with anger
Her streets are filled;
Filled with banners.
The green colour of her flag were to signify her natural wealth
But she has lived in misery.
The colour white should signify peace
But it’s stained with blood.
There’s hostility in her nation.
If Nigeria could speak
She would plead to be colonized again
She would yell to be a slave
She loves her citizens just like a true mother’s love
Hence, she would prefer they live a slave to dying “free” anyway
She suffers day and night
Just to prove her true existence
She provided nature’s endowment
Just like a mother to her child.
“You are the leaders of tomorrow”
The same words of the old ones to the youths
But the tomorrow starts when our hairs are grey.
They refer to us as “Lazy Nigerian youths”
The leadership only begins when we get to our declining years.
We need our heritage back!
We hope to get it someday!
