Land Of Roses Poem by Olayinka Faderera Olayiwola

Land Of Roses



-Nigeria at 51-

When we count our loses
in this land of golden roses
... We will discover we have lost more than we gained
through those evil years of tyranny; when Terror rained

In our deadly rage
we grew vast in age
We got free from White prison
but selfishly soldout in Black treason

Let's remember the good old days
when hope shun like distant rays
Our future saddled so bright
elegant in the sky like a kite

We have come a long way
so far my mouth cannot say
We've been together for so long
bonded by love so strong

Let's put an end to the discord
and hold unto one cord
The cord of peace, unity and love
love so true like that of a dove.
