I Long For The Day

I’ve had this in my phone draft for donkey years. Read, let me know what you think. I musta written it in commemoration of independence, but posted something else, so here goes nothing, read, think a little 🙂

An array of colours green
With white blooms in
A deluge of achievements harangue
That scarcely moves anyone around

Shattered dreams unearthed
Frustrations released, or let
Plans, devices the heartbeat of one
One signifies the multitude

Words spoken mirthless
Yet laughter fills the background
A cacophony uproarious
For his words be phony.

This sector is working, that has being resurrected
He preaches on; oblivious to their distaste
His performance he must complete strongly
Yet with every word he is derided harshly.

Teardrops fill the land
The ones who should be kings are humbled
And servants reign in their stead
This error is also his performance

So I long for the day
When we have a performer cum orator
Performing deeds he claims not lies
That day, oh, glorious ‘twould be

I long for the day
When NEPA would bill me
Not for darkness but light
As throughout the month there was no power failure

I long for the day
When roads are actually accessible
And rainfall does not mean flood
Nor touts -uniformed or not- stop the flow of traffic

I long for the day
When my people will smile genuinely
Peace reigns in the land
And all men are their brother’s keeper

So I long, so I wait, for a new Nigeria
Because I believe in the project so named
Running away will do me no good
These situation will only get worse
So for the day to appear,
It is a job that we must do together
You and I
