Valentine Mbagu Poems
Nigeria Independence Celebration
As October 1 approaches, HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY……………………
I have enormous tracts of land and vast volumes of water, but cannot feed myself.
So I spend $1 billion to import rice and another $2 billion on milk.
I produce rice, but don’t eat it. I have millions of cows but no milk.
I am 53, please celebrate me.
I drive the best cars in the world but have no roads,
so I crush my best brains in the caverns,
craters and crevasses they crash into daily.
I am in unending mourning, please celebrate me.
My school has no teacher and my classroom has no roof.
I take lectures ...
The Gifted One
Nothing is found except it is hidden,
nothing is hidden except it is a secret;
nothing is a secret except it is a treasure.
In me lives an unveiled waiting gifts,
the gifts that makes me gifted.
In me lies an awaiting voice to be heard.
.......wisdom for seekers of light.....
........light to those in darkness......
