Sacrifice To Freedom

–By Onyemaechi Ogbunwezeh

It is forever engraved;
On the marbles of time:

All candles burnt;
Groans spent;
Sighs heaved;
Indignities endured!
Energies exhausted

In search of liberty;
Are never sacrifices to appease
Failure!

Those unshed tears;
Those bottled pain;
Would one day rain;
To irrigate the arid deserts
Of oppression;
The frozen sorrows
Would one day flow
To fertilize the dried soils of llusion

The unresolved anger that ate us up;
The unshed tear that slept with us:
All in the search for freedom!

Will contrive to propel us,
To the land of the free!

For all the Biafran dead: Heroes fought like you!!!

We remember! We will never forget.
