For your needs left unmet in a world of wealth immeasurable

For all the times you were abused, your rights taken or violated

For the times when you’ve been let-down, and treated as undeserving

For all the years that’s passed your dreams unfulfilled along the way

For all the times you tried and tried, repeat, repeat but failed

For all the unrecoverable time of days and years bygone

For all the times your voice was silenced, screamed but no one heard you

For all the times like a ‘thing’ set aside, obsolete, no longer needed

You—the left-behind, the marginalized, the abused and oft forgotten

For all those times, keep up your fight, there’re others in your corner

Backstory: My heart bleeds for injustice everywhere but when it happens in places I’ve lived and worked (like Kaduna, Zaria and wider NE/NW Nigeria) my heart aches. This current string of kidnapping is a heartbreaking flashback to the years I served in Kaduna. Praying for Nigeria and for peace there and everywhere.

      1. So long as we keep moving forward we will get there in the end.
        I’m in a nice light and happy place now. I finally found someone who loves my sleuth Holly as much as I do and success is coming for me I feel.
