Happy Birthday Nigeria!


Today, I will think only good thoughts about my country (Oh yes!). As we celebrate our independence, I dedicate this poem by Meavescrete to the land of my birth.

***
There is a land deep in the heart of Africa,
A land so fertile and enchanting,
Its strength rises from the deep waters of the rivers Niger and Benue.
It is the land of Nigeria.
A land with rich and diverse cultures,
Lush vegetation,
Intriguing landmarks
Refreshing tourism,
A bustling economy,
In tune with nature.
It is the land of Nigeria,
It is the giant,
The Heart,
Of Africa.


P.s - My fellow country men. I hear a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step; the journey is long but we have started it haven't we? 

Have a fantastic independence day :)
