Human First

    By Afolabi Kayode


    I'm human first
    Before the barricade of religion
    I'm human first
    Before the divide of race
    I'm human first
    before the wall of tribe
    I'm human first
    Before the fence of language
    I'm human first
    Before the allure of politics makes me blind to the plight of my ilks
    Every other thing is a mirage
    I Won't let clans stand between my love for my kind
    for we are all sons and daughters of the land
    Wether black or white every human is my brother
    and sister
    Lets water this love so it can grow bigger
    Lets make it strong like the iroko tree hence it
    won't weather this weather
    I'm human first
    The beat of my heart is a testament to that
    Going against this will depict me as a traitor
