Soyombo Ayomikun: Please bring back our girls (Poetry)

by Soyombo Ayomikun

crying

From the jaws of hideous monsters.  From the very gates of hell.  Before their voices get silenced forever.  Please bring back our girls

1.From the jaws of hideous monsters

   From the very gates of hell

   Before their voices get silenced forever

   Please bring back our girls

2.From the grips of dark warlords

   Whose hearts have for long been lost

   Dark spirits that upon our land have declared a war

   Please bring back our girls

3.We don’t even know

   If they’re being killed daily

   If they’re being raped daily

   Whatever is going on there our plea remain

   That you please bring back our girls

4.Our homes in Chibok are missing them

   Their siblings want to hold them again

   The mosques where they prayed wants to welcome them back

   Their churches want to do a thanksgiving

   Just please bring back our girls

5.Now is not the time

   To be parading ourselves as giants

   If Nigeria alone cannot win this war

   Please seek help wherever it can be found

   We don’t really care how it’s gotten

   But victory,at whatever cost,is our desire

   For our cracked lips of clay to again blossom with smiles

   Please bring back our girls

6.At this sore moment

   Campaigns are meaningless to us

   We want to feel secured again

   In our homeland,at our yards

   We want to see the chains of terror destroyed

   We want to be drowned by sanity

   We want serenity wherever we turn

   Such that if a pin should drop,its impact will echoe through our land

   In pains humbly we again ask

   That you please bring back our girls

7.Time is ticking

   Souls from Sambisa are praying

   Chibok is on its toes

   Nigeria is waiting

   When we wake up tomorrow

   The news we want is that of victory

   For you,our military,please summon more courage

   Our hearts are with you,our spirits are not sleeping

   Our classrooms in Chibok are awaiting our angels

   Please bring back our girls,safely!
