The Nigerian Sonnet

One whom the Savannah spoke of in glory
The once revered nation
Reduced to a tall tale of a story
Far flung from he who denied colonialism eternal rest with gumption

Writhing in martyr yarned graves
Weeping at the travesty
Descendants have wrought of brave staves
Nationalists bled from with honesty

I try to view the bleeding horizon
I am blocked by the trail of the dead
Untold stories Of native daughters and sons
The forgotten glory of a country once said...

In our desire for change
We have been short changed.

The flowing beach
the setting half gloomy sun
Kiss in the moon

Need not say the word

Our hearts screams it loud enough

The sea our witness

At the cool of the evening
Our love show to the world
It can endure the test of time,
And the roaring of the sea
Show our love
Strength to stand the test of man.

In a cool wonderful serenity, our love blossom.
By the seashore, holding each other till eternity.
As the ocen waves splashing forever.

You'are the one, the special one
Anywhere I am , anytime on earth
