Standing at the shores of hope
We waited to be pushed;
To be pushed into the waters of relief
To be rid of all anguish

But... Alas! it never happened
The agony and pains continued
Our sorrows made their heart merry
Our cries- the fuel of their joy

The land is devoid of love
Except the affection for lucre
They are everywhere you look;
Swindlers in messiah's cloak

Welcome to our beloved country
Where death is nothing uncommon
Where healthcare is dysfunctional
Where life is but a living hell

Welcome to our beloved country
Where the subjects are contented;
Contended to be political pawns
Where rights have become privileges


Welcome to our beloved country
Where everyday is a game of survival
And we are accustomed to suffering
Where all we have is hopeless hope

I bid you welcome to Nigeria
Where corruption is a virtue
Where honesty is a despicable vice
And exposing a crime is a crime

We stand at the shores of hope
We linger on the cliff of promise
We loaf at the edge of freedom
When shall we be pushed into relief?
