Poem

A New Song
By Henry Chukwuemeka Onyeama*
 
Sing a new song today.
Tell of the joys of this day.
Remember not the travails we suffered.
Remind yourself not of the waves buffeted.
For at last the ship has reached the shore.
The voyage consigned to the lore of yore.
The grass is green.
Yes, we know, we have been
to the depths of hell.
But now sounds the bell
of a new life, a new dream, a new hope.
The children of today will cope.
Yes, victory belongs to them.
Sing a new song today
