RELATIONSHIP – ONE NAIJA

We will all find love someday

We never know which way

Our heart will want what it wants much to our surprise

It will become Captivated, infatuated, seeing only love in each other’s eyes

We will thank the day we found this love

A perfect gift from above

Packaged in imperfect perfection

…it will seem

Our hearts racing

…for each day would be a dream

Sometimes we would wonder If it is too good to be true

Too scared to be heart broken, scared of facing the truth

So we tell each other, I never want to lose you

I choose you above all,

I cannot spend a day without you

Hand in hand we would run to tell the world

The day has finally come

We have found the perfect love

Until those who love us, tell us that we cannot be one

For though we may be perfect,

He is igbo and I must go

Who is to tell us when we are one?

Is it you? Is it us? Or our ancestors dead and gone?

Why should I be punished for a crime I never committed?

Continuing this tribal war which says our love is not permitted

This love is no weapon of war

The battle you fight can never be won

So tell me your story and I’ll tell you mine too

Show me your history one page at a time

Tell me, please tell me

When are we one Nigeria?

 

FOOTBALL – ONE NAIJA

 Nothing binds us more than

…Football

Such beautiful game,

Bringing us together

Like a melting pot of flavours

It whets our passion

Sends our hearts racing

Roaring at the top of our voices

Each goal a celebration

We pledge to our nation

A win is for our people

Defending her unity

A peaceful community

Upholding her honour

We are one Nigeria

Nothing divides us more than

…Football

Such competitive game

Ripping us apart

Like families in time of war

It ignites our anger

Sends our hearts racing

Defending our people

Each miss becomes a chance

To shoot down our neighbors

Our tongues, a weapon

Our tribes, an armor

We’ve become a nation pretending in unison

Switching identities

From Igbo to Yoruba

Hausa to Igala

Ijaw to Efik

Fulani to Urhobo

We are 300 different people,

Trapped in boxes of ethnicity

Forgetting what unites us

The blood which flows through us

Because one of them has failed us

Nothing reunites us more than

…Football

He who was cast down

Has now made us proud

So we come together again

Chanting songs of victory

He is one of us

We are proud to be Nigerian

No matter the regalia

Until another fails us.

When are we one Nigeria?
