A SAVIOUR IS BORN – by Oluwatosin Faith Kolawole

There is a loud noise in heaven
A prophecy has been fulfilled
And the messiah is coldly wrapped in a sulking manger
.
The news of his birth
Laces our hearts with edible Joy
For fulfilment, for peace.
.
‘The son of man is come to save that which was lost’
It rings in our ears till each word etches
Swiftly on our mEYEnds
.
With each breath taken
And every spittle swallowed
The rhythm sings along:
‘A saviour is born’

The Nigeria of my Dreams 2

The Nigeria of my dreams reminds me of what tomorrow would be;
Tells me I have hope in the warped nation
I can find purity in whores
And our tainted whites can be without blemish
Sparkling; white as snow
The Nigeria of my dreams is pure
They say dreams fade
But these dreams in me will fade to live and live never to fade
I see light beaming at the end of these struggles
Because there’s a God that keeps watch on us
Nigeria has a place in God’s heart
The Nigeria of my dreams chooses to live;
Chooses peace as home and love to nurture;
Happiness to nourish her well-being
She chooses to remain Ni-ge-ri-a; the pride of the world.
Celebrating 55th anniversary
