I had geographically and divinely existed
Long before the British government identifie me,
I AM NIGERIA.

Endowed with numerous natural resources,
Divinely situated by the seas and oceans- windows
To other nations,
I AM NIGERIA.
Mother to majority of black people on earth,
Intelligent, resourceful and creative
Children of mine,
I AM NIGERIA.
I desired to be loved and managed by patriots,
To bring out the best in me for the benefits of
My children. I got shameless,visionless, directionless
And unpatrioticminds to manage me,
I AM NIGERIA.
How i got these self centered and unpatriotic minds
To manage me, i do not know, but you- my children,
Knows. You have had several opportunities to change
Them, but you failed each time,
I AM NIGERIA.
Within me, dwels plenty to sustain all, but my people
Are dying everyday by the produce of these visionless
Rulers,
I AM NIGERIA.
At 59, i am like this. Will i remain like this for years to
Come? The answer is yours to give. The choice is yours
To make,
I AM NIGERIA and will always remain NIGERIA
