MY AFRICA, MY NIGERIA – By Dr.Feliz Ruiz

MY AFRICA, MY NIGERIA

My heart weeps in sorrow
For all that you’ve been through
Like my own country
Foreign invaders robbed us too
Of gold, goods and dignity.
History is done and can’t be undone
Let’s look forward for renewed enthusiasm
With the power of our choice and will
We shall with our effort be best to win
The fight for life and dignity.
Let poetry be an instrument
To safeguard our kind hearts and wise mind
Where are the men the fortress of the land
who will defend
Wish they won’t undress the women
Rather with loving care
Clothe them in respect
never leave them to be abused,
misused and overused
We women are subjects
to be cherished and loved
Not objects to be sipped of nectar,
abused and thrown
and burned as refuse.
Poetry! Oh Poetry!
May your voice be overheard!
In the four corners of the earth
Save us our women, mothvers and children
For future generation!
