The residents are getting more forgiving, stronger in the face of vicissitudes of life.

No matter the hunger, soldiers-brewed-deaths,
the wickedness is becoming inspirational.

I have seen the fires of heaven, have survived
my deepest wounds.

2020 is a damaged situation.

The present hurt equips the mind
to face tommorow.

Some new realities are unacceptable,
watching Oyigbo bleed.

Human capacity to hold burden is feable,
‎when the global people no longer live life

with all their life. Chances are
the world isn't paying attention to Oyigbo,

where to live is now impossible,
with harrowing experience.

Soldiers are now king of the world, and
doubt of who's to be killed next isn't a puzzle.

Humans can't be grateful to life,
when 24hr curfew becomes the experience.

Write Oyigbo down the history,
with bitter tales to exhume.
