POEM: My Plateau

Published

on

By Arowolo Adam

Daggers buried in the hearts of people
Swords piercing their heads
Human’s flesh butchered on the floor
Blood gushing out endlessly from the holy hearts.

Tears raining torrentially from the eye of the heaven
Innocent souls visiting the graves in millions
Our egg of unity has been shattered
Where is the peace in the land of my birth ?

Hatred has torn my people apart
Religious sentiment has devoured the humanitarian feelings in us
Ethnical bigotry has murdered our peaceful co-existence
Oh! my Jos, what has gone wrong ?

Your sacred land now harbor melancholy
For, hands are now trained to carry unholy weapons
Killing, massacring, murdering has become the order of the day
My Jos! Your cold now blow sadness
For how long shall we continue to live as strangers amongst ourselves ?
When will peace breaths again in our midst ?
