A Patriot's Dream - Poem by Bakare Oluwagbenga Michael
My Home! My Nation! ! My Fatherland! ! !
Everyone has a dream for his nation. Mine is such that only few dream, yet fewer believe its possibility.
A land blessed with milk and honey;
on which no one needs spend his money.
A land ruled with much integrity;
Of which everyone lives in equality.
A nation where dreams will never shatter;
Poverty is sent drowning in gutter.
Where corruption is brought to justice;
Honesty is granted an office.
Where democracy is well refined;
Freedom is mostly defined.
Where status is never a barrier;
Every citizen deserves a career.
Where anyone can win a vote;
With no malice, complain nor gloat.
Where economy will grow and flourish;
Health and life will gloss like polish.
These are my dreams for my Nation (Proudly Nigerian) ...
