The twinkling in my heart

Male and female Boys and girls Tall and short Light and dark Plying the tarred roads To make ends meet Running gallantly Competing for buyers This battle... is not for the weak and weary Pity is the enigma that flows.. through my downtrodden veins questions are asked.... .when will the plight of the common man change When will this oppression and deadly plague Of dehumanization come to an end Oh Nigeria,Nigeria Consider the plight... of your brothers and sisters Most of which this deadly sea of poverty Has derailed off the path of success They say all hands are not equal ....Smiling...not equal they are But symbiosis they share The common man is part of the cosmo of this nation And each deserves the silverspoon to attain success.
