Enlarges the boundary lines in our so called union
Devastated and dejected yet we still hope
But alas most do not comprehend the scope
That which seeks to unite us
Seems to be what tears us apart,
The irony is that we lose focus
Trying for things not to fall apart
The elite preach unity in diversity
But secretly seek to stifle our creativity
While they desperately exploit the fault lines
They have successfully dug up in our minds
Where has the ‘Nigerian’ spirit gone?
‘I am Nigerian, my tribe comes second’
It seems a utopia what some of us see
A place where there is strength in diversity
Our loose dreams we hold on to so tight
But we refuse to give up the fight
As we still hope on the light
And will continue to strive with all our might.
