Time Will Tell

Time will tell
Or so said some long dead philosopher
Of brave men and how they fell
defiant still till the end.

Time will tell
O… this I surely know
Of Charlie, of Brussels, of Paris…
and their mass harvest of untimely deaths

A bomb blew up the mosque yesterday
but we’re too numb to care.
In the forests of sambissa,
Shekau still reigns as King.
Somewhere In chibok, mothers are weeping
their children are missing
and Oby is screaming…
will they ever bring back our girls?

Of fractured lives and broken homes
Of these will time still remember?
Of missing girls and displaced persons,
Of these will time still care?
Time will tell we say, time Will tell…
But will time truly tell?
Surely, time will tell.
