Free At Last - Poem by ONOJA ANTHONY

Dark and lonely is this side of life
Soon we shall not remember the freshness
On the other side of life where men are born free
What is life that we cannot let it go?
When we cross the fit to fit the fit
From here came the other end of our beginning
When we see the darkness in our hearts
The bitterness we carry above our stands
Forge by the milk of hatred and deceit
We drank from pools were anger and death dwindles
Could this be why we live like monsters?
We are now thrown like outcast from our ancestral homes
Our children lost to bombshell and fireworks
Our women lie wasted in the streets of Savannah
Our young men dies when the bomb goes off in Sambisa
Love lets love we are bounded together
Though divided in our beliefs and faiths
Lets face the monster we have become in greed
Lets kill the hate in our souls
Leave the carcass behind in smokes
The grave have no boundaries
Death have left us tattered in losses
We strive for the unknown fate
All men were born equal
All men must be free at last
