Thoughts of my captive daughter (A poem to oppressed women)(Author: Rafiq Raji) #BringBackOurGirls #TimeToAct #Nigeria #AfricaWrites #Poetry #Africa

Would rather I die than be violated another day.
What caution? Am I to fear death when living is worse?
What life? My body pillaged, my innocence corrupted at will.
Where are my fathers? Am I to be rescued when I’m spent?
What use living then? Tell me, O fathers!
Where are my knights in shining armour?
Would rather I die than my body be pillaged another day.
Don’t my fathers worry about me?
What is taking them so long?
Would rather God’s heaven than this hell.
