THE VEIL UNFURLED



I see a looming cloud, bereft of life,
And the fullness that nature gives
Like darkness overshadowing the light
That once ruled over my country, Nigeria.

A land of resources, bereft of insight
To grow and heal the wound of the land
Where the strong boldly bully the weak,
Where the rich boldly rules the poor.

The old refuses to grow and learn,
Wallowing in the mentality of the past.
The young stays in the comfort of their dreams,
Bereft of skills and talents for the future.
