A month after #BringBackOurGirls, Boko Haram just kidnapped another 20 women

Boko Haram’s terrorist cycle using female captives continues in Nigeria with the abduction of 20 more women, adding to the 276 schoolgirls still held in captivity since April.

It’s yet another sign that the terrorist group is not backing down, as it continues its insurgency in the country. And perhaps yet another testament to the Nigerian government’s failure to curb the group’s violent tactics.

Will You Be My Muse?

Though its summer
The sun is displaying its cold shoulder
It is yet to reach out to me.
I have not watched the moon in a while
Nor tried to describe the beauty of a star.
Now the sky were it dwells is just a sky
Its blue layers slowly fading away

Most of my time spent buying pens
I forgot to write with them

Will you be my ninth muse?
You may bring every colour to life
Shooting golden arrows
Piercing my views into outer worlds
You will place the sun on my palms
It shall become a torch

My pen shared feelings of abandonment
Refusing to let ink flow in retaliation
I am now in search for deeper revelations
To describe rotations as more than circles

Protecting my love
My art
Protecting my being
My poems

Will you be my ninth muse?
