A cry for peace

The lines are few and scattered just like the way we are now Our country is like a war farm and the leaders are the farmers religion stings, corruption, suicide bombing and dead are the activities in the farm a cup of blood for the thirsty no one to judge I feel the pains even in our breathe A cry for peace from the wing of Nigeria>/center>
