What was meant for all
They took to themselves
What our motherland gave us
The willed to their generations
Kept us starving
Kept us in perpetual darkness
And smiled in their mischief
Told us stories
Fell on the floor like we did
Just to make us feel 
we all danced the same tune

Where are their wards
Where are their children
They have gathered us 
in our hungry state
Told us the misery 
and blame tales 
we have always heard
Handed us peanuts 
tied in their branded bags
So we ate desperately 
and danced away our conscience

Where are their wards
Where are their children
Their arrant confidence 
told them we will come again
The hunger they put us in 
brought us again
The promises they made 
they claim they have not forgotten
They have promised again

They have given us the weapon 
of our words against realities
They have given us weapons 
to divide and destroy ourselves
Weapons to destroy their enemies
They have given us stuffs
Hardened us against pain
And pushed us to do their dirty deals

Their wards have sailed away
From the 'dirtiness' of the business
They have fanned the flames of war
And sent their children away for safe keep
And put us on the front line as their bulletproofs

How long shall we continue in this circle
Waiting for their unfulfilled promises
Destroying ourselves
Impoverishing ourselves
Selling our mandate for meals
Selling our future for peanuts

How wise are we now
Are we really ready for a change
Are we ready to get it right
We will make a difference
When we are ready
No better time to be ready than now

ABUSED - ‘SAYING SOCIETY’ So loud So loud she shouted Shouting for help Every other night She is shouting I can hear her now He is hitting her again She's been hit, beat and battered Wounded inside out Lost her glow Lost herself-worth Lost her confidence Lost her smile All for what the society would say
She is grinding She is grieving She is dying Because the society won't listen to her No one wants to hear her own side of the story No one cares how she feels She has been told to stay there and fight for her home She has been admonished to stay and pray some more She has been told everything will be alright But for how long For how long She has been caged by what the society says
This 'saying society'


My name is Stella Obokoh, I am a wife, mother, writer, educationist and an entrepreneur.Inspiring people through creating pictures in their imaginations makes life good for me. Helping people see light and positivity in every situation is great meal. Seeing people realise and believe in their abilities makes me have a good sleep. I love teaching, I love children so dearly, they are my 'berry berry' anytime and I enjoy being a team player. Starinscriptions is born out of a heart to reach many through creative writings (poems, stories, quotes and writeups) that will be soothing and getting others to do same.
