The Birth Of Nigeria

By Gabla Godwin

White strips of green

Leaves on a black plant

Were blessed with

Freedom years ago

The tears of they who are black

Formed the rivers of they

who are white

The sweat of they who are black

Nursed the walls of

They who are white.....


The calm yet heavy wind of change

Blew through the land of

The green pandas

They who were black

Wanted to own their sweat

The eyes of they who are white

Shone with bitterness and Pain


They who are black

had the lion's heart

Their arms were blocks

of unending strength

their brains were sharp chisels

that carved a beautiful future...

Yes! It was years ago...

Decades ago..

Half a century ago..

Yes! It was 56 years ago

When the future

Of a great nation Was birthed.

Happy birthday, Nigeria!

A country filled with rich culture and wonderful people.

To all my Nigerian Friends here, I say Happy Independence Day and may your nation grow from strength to strength as we foster international peace and unity.
