Soyombo Ayomikun: #BringBackOurGirls- 60 days (Poem)

by Soyombo Ayomikun


Some of them have been raped.  If not all.  From uncircumcised demons.  Manhoods laden with infections


1.Of anguish & tears

Of wailing & pains

Of bile & hate

60 days of bleeding from our hearts


2.Of deceit & deceit

From leaders who should have answers

Of schemings to propagate chaos

60 days of bleeding from our hearts


3.Some of them have been raped

If not all

From uncircumcised demons

Manhoods laden with infections


4.I can’t just imagine

How they spend each morning

How they get slapped & at night

Some beasts mount them for more desecration


5.Perhaps they have lost their minds

Once beautiful & innocent hearts

Maybe they’re now even suffering from Stockholm Syndrome

Now falling in love with their captors


6.When they finally get released

I pray we don’t stumble upon wreaks

Wreaks that no longer trust their own

Souls that got crowned with horror as the government failed


7.How can they be normal again

After dining with & feeding hell’s host

Some may even be pregnant now

Wondering what beast lurks in their wombs


8.The nightmares they have every night

Of spears being thrust into their hearts

Of being placed on a cross without a fault

With the country helpless as they’re crucified bleeding


9.If anyone is thinking life will return to normal

Without freeing the Chibok girls

Perhaps such should have a rethink

As an implosion awaits Nigeria unless they are found


10.We can’t give up now

Both the ones carrying guns & those wielding pens

We have to keep searching & searching

Until the girls are found


11.To the beautiful hearts gathering at Unity Fountain

To the soldiers we’ve lost & those still fighting

To every Nigerian daily praying & hoping

We’ll see the sun rise again!
