Reflect Nigeria… Revisited

In the midst of the suppurative stench that ails this nation…beyond the dilapidation of infrastructure, degradation of the environment, decay of morals and destruction of laudable standards, the perverted necessity to amass ill-gotten wealth, particularly that, with amorality, disseminated from the coffers belonging to all Nigerians, mostly now, maliciously downtrodden by the albatross of impossibly eking out the mirage of an existence amid the ruination perpetuated by the perniciously destructive boots of oppression, and then… to unconscionably discourage such treasury, especially that which belongs to Nigerians, with calloused obscenity, while wantonly oblivious to the plight of those masses… with pervasive pungency, percolates to the apex of a putrid cesspool with resounding repugnance as a cause of incessant lamentation for the nation, which blessed with much, may have forged a different destiny, perhaps, yet gloriously etched, in the sands of time.
Reflect Nigeria, reflect…

Reflect Nigeria Tragic Fiction 5 – Prayer Of An Abducted Chibok And Now Dapchi Girl

I am weary of this horrendous and feigned existence that I am forced to live
And seek complete deliverance, like some of my comrades in chains before me,
Fortunate to be relieved eternally, from the atrocities of oppression that are
Conjoined with the degradation and unveiled brutality of sexual bondage,
Into the embrace of death, from this unbearable agony that ceases not.
For I understand, that it is a transition through redemption, to eternal peace.
Which is what I seek, like some of us, who have since had the tragic fortune
To escape, from this realm, like birds from the captor’s grip, but forever free.
That respite, is what I urgently need from the endless lashing of the torture,
From the shackles of despair, as all innocence is lost from these forsaken woods
Where neither normalcy nor joy nor hope abound, and evil reigns supreme.
I said my prayers silently, the prayers of my own faith, to remove me swiftly
And instantly, from this place, and for this, I now without patience await.

World – Ponder This

The fact that the gender that bears and brings forth humanity

Is often treated with unveiled disdain and repugnant brutality

Truly, is an irreconcilable absurdity of the human existence.

Save our girls!

Reflect Nigeria – The Right To Live …

Is an inalienable right of every human being.

Not simply because it is reinforced in documents

Or exalted by the pedestal of conscience and morality.

No, the right exists for all humanity, every one.

Even if it is not committed to writing.

And contained within the essence of that right,

Is indeed the right to pursue one’s dreams

To the magnitude of their possibilities

Irrespective of one’s gender, and this right

Extends to all, including all young girls

Innocently pursing their dreams amid

The seemingly innocent halls of their school.

Save our girls.

Thus, all girls like the rest of humanity

Are entitled to live their lives

And to pursue their own dreams
