Unity In Diversity - Poem by Oyelakin Gbolahan

- Quiet intended by the Sovereign (Creator) God
that man may realize how to abase
so as to ascend.

- Long on the run,
University was invented that
we may take on the study to
discover where the unity lies in our diversity

- There in the prestigious citadels of learning
across the latitudes and longitudes of the globe
are caucasoids, negroids, mongoloids…
Working hand-in-hand and building an indomitable world
with invisible machine fortresses.

- Regardless our differing tongues,
skin colours, tribal diversities,
cultural complexities…
We hold unity in diversity.

- Together we stand, stand forever to ascend,
Divided we fall, fall never to rise again.
