SOMEWHERE IN THE NORTH

SOME WHERE IN THE NORTH

Here we stand with eyes wide opened,
Not knowing what next will happen;
Before we realized,
It took us by surprise;

July 2001 was the month
That made women to mourn;
For the men that fall that day,
Was many on that sunny day;

Babies cried on their mother's back,
Like a chicken in the butcher's hand;
The number of Casualties kept increasing,
And the music of guns wasn't thrilling;

Before that day, It was a chronic euphoria,
That happens  somewhere in northern Nigeria.

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
