News of killings have become commonplace in Nigeria. We have learnt to shrug and shake our heads each time we hear of another killing somewhere.
Take A Life Or Save A Life (a poem)
Every human being has a role to play in bringing peace to humanity, our actions and inactions all contribute to overall peace, or chaos.
The Nigerian army has its hands full, tackling insurgency, in the Northern parts of or nation while the police and other security agencies battle with criminals and the likes.
We just recently saw the 'House Of Horror' saga in Ibadan where human beings were treated worse than cows in an abattoir while the Fulani vs Herdsmen violence, and others, seem to have no end.
In all these, humans lose their lives, in gruesome manner, to the whims of other fellow humans.
So I give you this poem –a question, as a message to us all:
Cut – throats
harvest – oats
We are all knives in the hands of life – it is our choice to cut throats like a killer or harvest oats like a farmer, give life or take it.
Yes, you, I, us, we all have power to change things and contribute to the defeat of evil by the way we talk, act, react... are all contributors to peace or war.
Why not chose to save a life today?
