What Happened to Us?
by Gloria Urube
We used to be known as the land of the free
With all the code of conduct, you can’t see
Like a feather, all is whirled by the wind
Gradually into thin air fuzzing out is our peace.
What happened to us!!
Our safety was once secured
All in unison, living a life of freedom
Our fight for peace to be restored
And our opinion is never considered an option
What happened to us!!!
We are known as the giant of Africa
Where are the strength and vigor?
To push through the barricade of poverty
And pull down the wall of mediocracy
Our land is flowing with milk and honey, they say
The honeycomb is dry and nonsticky
The source of our milk is out of bound
All we get is the stinging pain of bees.
We are the prowess generation!!!
And we’re never going to give up on our dreams and pursuit of a better life.
I believe in us
And we are going to make a change.
