It's been far too long

Location

What is going on my people? My government?

Where are my sisters?

Their love and Presence?

It’s been missing for far too long

The world is at war,crying,speaking wanting to be heard

Emotions here,there, being stirred up everywhere

Across the cities,countries, and borders

Please dear Lord, we ask for you to just bring back our daughters.

 

What is going on my people? My government?

Where are my sisters?

Their beauty and Aura?

It’s been missing for far too long

Silent whispers, and prayers from children who barely understand

Younger siblings have what was once filled, empty hands.

Mothers,fathers eyes are glistening with tears

Understand, this is not just a random world affair

 

What is going on my people? My government?

Where are my sisters?

Their wisdom and laughter?

It’s been missing for far too long

Daniel is asking for Saraya.

Abdul is wondering why his mommy is crying

Asabe misses her older sister

They are Weeping,mourning,and praying their girls are not dying

 

What is going on my people? My government?

Where are my sisters?

Their smiles and joy?

It’s been missing for far too long.

Nigeria is crying oil and money

How can Nigeria breathe and take 3 weeks just to weep.

Where is the love? Peace? And harmony?

 

What is going on my people? My government?

Where are my sisters?

Their hearts and pride ?

276 Future doctors,lawyers,mothers and wives

276 daughters,cousins,and nieces

276 days it must not take to find our daughters,cousins, and nieces

Tick Tock Hurry up, Boko Haram, my country, my people ,my government

My sisters have been missing for far too long.
