Somewhere in Africa (2nd)

Somewhere in Africa (2nd)

A Poem by Peter Mogba

the poem is talking about the unpleasant state of mind in Nigeria

In" love" i write this letter
Hoping to amend better
The presence of our future

Our past is always ou8r shadows
lurking in the dark even till down
To hunt down the infant snow
Right from the day they were born.
Our sins passed upon
The innocents that just came on board

Walking along the streets
Looking beneath the trees
These infants worn away physically
This land is to be in peace and harm0ny,
Why this calamity?

the vultures drag the skin
of those taking a "nap" on the street
this is a "beautiful" sign
that we are all up at night

i look forward  to the  next dreaded sound
to shake my head for the helpless victims
and offer them a requiescat
For a "peaceful" departure

For many has died
For many are held captive
For many are to be either of those
I look forward for a peaceful giant
Still somewhere in Africa...

For if i am a victim,
For if we all are victims,
Who will till the soil?
Who will right our wrongs?
Who will speak of our past?
For those gone i have given peaceful wish
R.I.P till this land sigh again
....still somewhere in Africa.....
