I am a Nigerian

 

Nigeria, 
The giant of Africa 
The origin of great people 
The home of future leaders 


Nigeria, 
A land filled with milk and honey 
A land of peace and unity 
A land that is my home 


Despite the language and religious barriers 
The corruption and the recession 
Our hearts beat as one 
Today and forever more 


This day, 57 years back 
The happening of something great 
A memorable event 
That would ever be remembered 


We stood as one and fought 
For what was rightfully ours 
We joined hands and 
Retrieved our Fatherland 


57 years of independence 
We still are alive and running 
57 years of greatness 
There still is more to come 


Through our courage 
We birthed independence 
Now we smile and celebrate 
With no regret in mind 


Like it happened 57 years ago 
Let us keep fighting 
To make our country a better place 
To have more things to celebrate 


I am a Nigerian 
And I hope to become a leader 
To make Nigeria better 


Happy Independence Day!
