Killers of Dreams

Killers of dreams, murderers
Yet they are faceless
I hear children wailing
Calling for their mothers
Families scattered away, never to be reunited

The catapult of bombs scattered round
Leaving cries of a bitter sound
The dark Christmas morning never to be forgotten
Yet they are faceless

The younger generation deteriorating by the minute
With the female gender used as tools
In the act of terror as fools
Yet they are faceless.

BOKO-HARAM, do you really have blood running in your veins?
Why are you sharing innocent blood?
Yet they are faceless.

The hand of amnesty stretches forward.
The nation gathers strength once more.
To save her people
BOKO-HARAM show your faceless face and embrace this amnesty
