Let Nigeria Be Nigeria Again - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Let Nigeria be Nigeria again.
Let the flag demonstrate peace
Let the coat of arm be unity,
Let it be the hero it used to be.
Let it be the dream that elevate,
Let it be the love it used to be,
Uplifting its masses in prosperity.

Let Nigeria be the hand that feed many,
Let it be the great eyes that watches us;
We may fall at the sight of fear that kills,
Let it be the dream that lift us up again.
Let its traditions come back to its abode,
Let Nigeria be the Nigeria that create hope
That take its masses to progress and blessing.

Let it be heaven on earth for us all;
A paradise which dominate the world.
Let our anthem be the way it used to be.
Let its heritage be the way it used to be,
Life, a free and wonderful journey to us.
Let us go back to where we began before 1914.

Let Nigeria go back to its branches,
Let its roots stand and never be uprooted.
Let us see the lines drawn on the sky and
Cease to be afraid of the air we breath.
Let terrorism go into extinction like before
When we have none but hear only from others.
Let killing and shading of innocent blood stop!
Let Nigeria be Nigeria again I pray in tears!

Let Nigeria be Nigeria again I sing alone,
Let's go back to the farming we started with,
Let plant the cocoa we were known for,
Let's eat kola nut together in a round table,
Let's Nigeria tales be told as it used to be.
Let the leaders be the leaders they used to be.

I am a child of tears who have seen no progress,
Let our educational system resurrect!
Let discrimination stop immediately!
Let bribery and corruption stop now!
Let the youths dream yet another dream,
We can move forward when we unite!

Let Nigeria be Nigeria again I pray!
Nigeria was never the Nigeria I used to know
as I write this in tears of the imprisoned rain.
I see suffering and pains in this country;
I see a Nigeria that seek for itself rather than
Its masses, let its stand again I pray hopefully.
