Expression Eruption: Tafawa Balewa's Death Wish - Poem by Vincent Onyeche

Part of a whole but I'm broken
Torn into three unstable fragments
Incompetent of religious believe.

I had peace standing beside the green
I take my daughter to school now frighten.

Please traverse the boundaries alone
Tell the sundry, tell them all, I am not...
In battle; but the green and white I died for.

Peace is a fruit, never be forbidden
To Napoleon, the alphabets never forgotten
It can be hidden in love but not unspoken.

It is that: that distinct the enlighten
It is the unity of a skin and collagen.

Peace is peaceful when it lacks violence.
