A MINUTE OF SILENCE

A minute of silence
For the songs, we never sing
But left buried alive in us.

A minute of silence
For the connections
Our ego had been put asunder.

A minute of silence
For the nation, we want to build-in peace
But becomes a chick slaughtered
on her mother’s lap.

A minute of silence
For the beautiful day, we hoped for
That only exists in our fantasy.

A minute of silence
For our all hearing father
That is deaf to our outcries.

A minute of silence
For the leaders of tomorrow
With no hope of ‘morrow.

A minute of silence
For the abundant mineral resources
That served of no use.

A minute of silence
For the Garri we soaked for hours
Before we could drink.

A minute of silence
For the heart, we love and care for
That tagged us like an intruder.

A minute of silence
For smile we faked
And the pain that wear us.

A minute of silence
For the food, we would have eaten
The cloth we would wear
The pleasure we would have felt.
If only.
If only the world is just.

  1. This is well woven and pathetic. It speaks about my land, a perfect home of forlorn love 💔.
