What can i compare you to?
A mother in whose arms I feel, "the world is my oyster"
...Countless opportunities and real impact for those who dared take the first step
A happy childhood full of hopes and dreams
...I pledged to Nigeria my country to be faithful, loyal & honest
A burnt house with ashes left behind to remember what once was
...Poverty-stricken masses who numb the sickenly rich into further greed
A fallen king whose castle was once alight with laughter and dancing
...An oppressed populace who has forgotten its founding values
A false start at the sound of the gun
...Is this what democracy brings?
49...Glory lost, history forgotten, future hangs in the balance.
Who will rewrite the sixth decade?
Take it from me...
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! Thanks to the Weepies for the title quote and a joint thank you to them and Shakespeare for the "what can i compare thee to" muse.
