In is a poem that laments the our hopeless state after birth.
Not trapped
Like a hen on a bay
No wings no webs
Innocent as a lamb
Yet met for the slain
Tramping like vagabonds
On the island of tikis
No freedom no hope
Yet must be docile as donkey
And shrill shed
Spur and spittle
Our reckless soul
Awaiting a second miracle
Truth has become obsolete
Life its hopeless end
Who again shall they see
In the magnetic mirror of death?
Their traumatized self
Before the doctor’s butcher
Can the stethoscope decide our fate?
Really really
As innocent as the lamb
We’re just innocent children
Born in a confused
And hopeless country

In-between is a poem that laments the situation of young innocent Nigerians who are met to face brutality of a failed system as the only alternative and option left to reality. I actually felt there is no going back after birth and there is no means to hope except to face the brutal reality of suffering in attempt to make a living.
In-between was written on the night of 3rd May 2014.
