BOKO HARAM – UBAH CHETACHUKWU

Looking behind…

Behind the headlines of suicide

Bombs set off on road sides

To what lays deeper inside

Boko Haram, we pray that

This pain and struggle would one day subside

Innocents falling like birds

Unprotected by the so-called laws

Innocents hunted down without a cause

Many a soul murdered

Hearts slaughtered, Brains knocked out

Young and old fiercely tortured

In pain and grief, we drown

With dry tears hidden in our eyes

But we still live on

HAVE YOU READ:  LIFE. BY ADEGBITE ARINOLA

While others fight for right, and die?

Sacrificing your own life for a cause

Sends an undeniable message;

Simple tears aren’t as expressive

What about our hand in the effort? Is what we hear the correct expressions

Of misleading directives?

Looking at this war from their side

Where they are pieces of dirt, unfed

Wearing pieces of shirts, unclad

No one is willing to give up pride

And we die for peace in Nigeria

We are bleeding 

Because somehow we’ve been cut by our own ideals

Our people are reeling from the pain

And we all know how it feels

HAVE YOU READ:  THE WRITER'S PLEA

Masses, massacred

Masses, shattered

Tragedy so sad to see

When all that was asked to be

Was to live peacefully

In my home, my prison

Patience has become my weapon

As I await the heat of light

The door out of my plight

Into the sun of spring

Where peace is my king

Evil in creed

Ready to kill

Without need

And succeed in their devilish deeds

What hope is there for the hopeful?

Knowing fully well that hope has lied

I know that every story has two sides

But who wins? The ocean or the tides?

How do we justify

HAVE YOU READ:  I DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO SAY I LOVE YOU

That when others die, it’s fine
