TEARS | By Olaniyi Ololade






For Naija

There are not sweet lines about Naija anymore,
All are sad poems written with tears.
We're nailed to griefs, we're nailed to pains.
We're broken into pieces of sorrow.
We're stranded souls, looking for sunshine in the dark;
A nation walks into hell, millions of wailers groan.
Look deep into my eyes, you will read tears of different colours;
One for lost sisters in Borno, one for broken bones in Benue,
One for trails of blood in Plateau, one for burnt boys in Lagos,
One for pillars of Naija that is breaking into pieces,
And one for living shadows that do not know their fates.
There are not sweet lines about Naija anymore,
All are sad poems written in tears!

I cry for Naija!
