I am on a mission to spark an interest in reading in Nigeria. So, I have decided to share a few of my favourite poems and excerpts from my dearest books to lure people back into literature. #ALiteraryRevival
Come my friend, let’s sing a song
For times that were and are no more,
Surely, Surely, the doom is near
It comes, it comes, I see it here,
Swiftly, slowly, what does it matter?
Let’s sing about the lack of vision
Of greed and mad ambition
That stones the mind and stops the heart
From beating a rhythm of love.
For love and truth are strangers here
And in my heart I feel a hole
And deracinate tree my soul,
Cheer me then with a song of love.
Let me love and sing and dance.
Let me dance and sing and live
Before the doom engulfs.
