Nigeria's Call Obey

Poem By micheal udenyi

From within she called out my name
the more she screamed, it seemed she sunk
no one, not even me to pull her up
she called on, but I was too deaf t o hear

In pain and agony she called on, one hand up
wishing her voice any one could hear
but Oh! the weeping, the wailing, the the drowning groans
the tears that gushed frely, with no soul to comfort

she winced for the pain of a malfunctioning heart that seldom beats
help! help! ! help meeeeeeeee! ! ! ! the voice, the bleeding heart
amidst the fractious fracas I felt perturbed
a nation so rich could also cry?

Nigeria, my nation, my hope, my home
dost thou need cry thus, ere I here?
here am I, Nigeria's call to obey
to fight to the finish the war of our fathers

Cry no more, for he that thou callest have heard
I am on my heels your errand to run
for ther's yet a breed of honest blood alive
willing to conquer our battles for us

A Cry For Help

the evils that are done in this country
are too great for the ears alone to hear
they are too much for the eyes alone to see
for the those who promised to lead us

Farewell To Love

I gave up all i had
just for me to be heard
but lacked the boldness
to fix the bait to the hook

Daddy Wasn'T There

when i was catechised
when i was bowdlerised
when i was circumcised
when i was baptised

Endless Love

Days have passed
since i left you
but it is as fresh as yesterday
you will be in my heart

End Of Me

Just because i am born of a woman
my life is but for a few days
but my world is surrounded by troubles
i rise gloriously like a flower at dawn
