Allow me to cry out loud,
The pain in me is cruelty of its own
It has no base and no form,
It bellows in me like a stromy rain
I lack so many things, except tears!
My city knows me as mad woman,
While many across my street spit on me
Few friends i have, lost me wayback
Now, tell me how to write a pleasant story
I'm half demon and half mammal
All i see in me is war against no one
I grind my teeth like giant mables and tiles
Believing a better tomorrow to come,
Believing our nation will do better
Yet, the peace to come is in hades!
Dancing Davido and egún-egún in hell
The Parliament in disgusting atmosphere
Democracy couldn't come through them fair_ly
I have been walking from streets to streets
Working and working my strength out'
Visiting different hospitals, unduly '
My world is unbearable, no one knows'
*. *. *.
Allow me once more to cry so loud'
I owe no one apologies, not now'
Heaven is no saint again, hell is the new saint!
That pastor across my street raped me,
He raped my intelligence in Christianity,
Now, I'm left with sorrow to cuddle me
While, he's still preaching down the street
Who knows if God is not dead again...
Who knows if God is not in an endless meeting,
The heat in me is chaos, i feel it raining in me!
I want to hug devil in a time unknown to men,
I want to merry in hell if there, the new peace harbors
Allow me kiss the feet ogún and yail joyfully...
Who knows what could come of it all, thereafter'
My neighbors are no more family to me,
My colleagues became hoodlums to my feelings
Hello! Mr President, I am still your citizen'
Empowerment lost its way to my doorstep,
Development died long time ago before my reach,
My parents couldn't stop chuckling in poverty;
They are evidence of poverty at large
My world is unbearable, no one knows.
