If grace was the luxurious rejuvenation of the lush green on leaves, it would and should be said that a country I know, is abundant in graciousness.

If fields and their nourishment was a weapon against starvation, then it would and should be said that a country I know well, is a conqueror of famine.

If rivers and lakes were a short story of the flow of energy, then it would and should be said that a country I know well, is electric untapped.

If strength was measured by beads of sweat, then it would and should be said that a certain people, in a country I know are gods underrated.

If night and day were truly the description of man’s activities, then it would and should be said that a country I know well, is a stranger to the word ‘laziness.’

If progression was dependent on the mentality of citizens, then it would and should be said that a certain people, in a country I know are enemies to regression.

If a path was furbished for this country I know so well, it would and should be an ideology birth from the selfless thoughts of democracy.

If a path was made open to the toddlers of this country I know so well, it would and should be an investment on education and not the humans who represent it.

If a path was forged for the elderly of this country I know so well, it would and should be an assurance of a future without fear.

If a path was created for the youth of this country I know so well, it would and should be a total understanding of unity and opportunities on the leader boards.

If a path was built for religions and ethnicities of this country I know so well, it would and should be peace to every step taken by its people.

If a path was to be established for this country I know so well, it would and should be constructed with blocks of the future, not bricks of past failures.

If a path to greatness is one to be erected, it would and should be built now. For now is the future, and now the right time.

If a path is to be assembled, likened to the stars of a pretty night sky, it would and should be built for the country and certain people I know well. For though unbelievable to souls blinded by ignorance, the people are more than ready for a change and the government is beyond empowered to do so.

The people I know well are Nigerians and the country is Nigeria.
