In A Friendly Country


In a friendly country,
Life is not about who has power
Nor is it about those who have piles of artilleries;
In a friendly country life is whereby children play all day without fear
Such a place where children freely go to school and their parents are sure of seeing them again
Friendly faces are all that people meet
No matter what race, religion, gender one is;
Where women go to work without fear, where girls go to school freely
No cases of rape and defilements;
Where neighbor hoods are safe from crimes
No cases of murder, but love among its people;
In a friendly country, there is no police brutality, not even power abuse by soldiers
But kindness from every person you meet only matters
Assistance when a neighbor faces tough winds of poverty, sickness, you name it;
A friendly nation will see off its citizens develop themselves
Not even jealousy will find its way among them;
It is where leaders listen but never dictates
A place where leaders put people’s needs first before enriching themselves;
Such friendliness makes the friendly nation develop and prosper
It is in such a friendly country that we all have hope in

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
