Thinking of my Nation

If I were the president Of the this great legacy We call our home,our country Left to us long ago By our long departed great fathers I will strive with all my heart To build with it a monument Dynamic yet stable Solid and strong Like the great rock of Gibraltar She will be the envy of other nations The pride of generations yet unborn Alas I’m not the president I’m but a resident Like everyone else I can only watch and pray Perhaps weep For once there was a nation Green and beautiful Filled with potentials Whose back is now bent Under the weight of depression, Corruption and segregation One day soon, maybe Our hope that is now withered Like dying roses in the evening sun Will receive a surge of life And blossom yet again! You and I may yet sing our nation’s anthem Head high, chest out And filled with pride Shining as the stars On a darkened night sky And even though we all can’t be president We will believe always in a new Nigeria Vibrant, strong, dynamic and stable Our country, our pride.
