The Error Of Terror - Poem by Bright Kwamina Grantson
As the world is plagued by greater and greater division, economic and political suppression
Terrorism causes distraction and it's travelling worldwide in diffusion.
Rebels are recruited from all nations to the middle direction to cause affliction
And to keep nations in a state of confusion
The last time I was in Lagos, I wanted to find something to eat
So as I was walking along the street, I then realised I had left my wallet
In the bedroom of my apartment.
As I made an about turn and walked about in minutes of ten
I heard an explosion, in my supposed direction
People dying like flies, women could not control their eyes
I look at the people of Nigeria, and I see the scars of Terrorism.
So how long shall they kill our brothers, our sisters and our mothers.
Shall we sit down and let these men live like free men
At the expense of innocent souls? Where are the Winston Churchill’s?
Where are the Kennedys? Where are the Kwame Nkrumah’s?
Where are the Napoleon's the JJ Rawlings'
I strongly believe in the Great Man theory that, leaders are born in the times of such crisis.
In times of pain and affliction, they rise from the ashes of destruction to redeem their nation.
As such leaders of the world should arise
Let’s fight terrorism until the last man dies.
Let’s fight for our children, for them to know that we did not back down.
That we did not surrender to the evil of this world and that we did not give in.
That we rose up sacrificing everything so that they can live
In faith and not in fear. Love and not in hate
In Freedom and Justice.
