Poetry

I VISUALIZE By Tijani Abdulkabeer

Written by Editor

I  a country
Of beacon hope for the black race
And a leading nation of reckoning
In the international community

I visualize a country
Whitish like a pilled egg
Purified like ocean
Serene like a prison yard

I visualize a country
Rescued from myriad of problems
After the presumed battle of fig
That spatted innocent bloods
Transit from austerity to economic revolution
From primordial ethnocentrism to indigenization policy
From destruction to construction
From confrontation to consultation
From prebendalism to democracy
From quicksand to brotherhood

I visualize a country
Roaming out of it harmattan days
Of longhaul endemic heart attack
To a laced innovations
Empowering the young leaders
With strong manpower

I visualize a country
Rising from the dark and resolute valley of segregation
To the sunlit path of racial justice
Pledging to march ahead
To its promise land

I visualize a country
Of green white green
The green was so greenish
The white was so whitish
Despite their diverse culture
They were Held with the strong believe
Of unity and Faith
I visualize the Nigeria we have always dreamed of
