I wonder what a 
Will be so blessed
With rich wildlife, 
vegetation and 
Yet it remains so 

My country so rich 
yet so poor
Sitting nicely on the 
banks of the Benue 
and Niger!
Fastly crawling onto 
development yet so 

Full of so much 
Yet surrounded by 
What a sight of pity
Left by her colonial 
master's scorns!

You will recover I 
From these 
distractors who lead 
you astray!

    Until when shall we here of bad things happening around us? Africans destroy their own wealth because of greediness. Good stuff

    Your words relate to Africa in general, so I pray too for your country and mine. Hopefully we will all recover soon:) This is an eloquent write, thanks for sharing:)
