In yesterday’s embrace, we first met,
Recommended highly, yet beneath his eyes,
Lay hidden pains, a story quite discreet,
A driven soul, attention’s fond goodbyes.
A man of action, details left behind,
He conquered realms, in exploits he did soar,
Yet failures weighed heavy on his mind,
In whispered trust, our wounded hearts did pour.
“What leader do you seek?” My friend,
“One schooled in theory, unscarred by strife’s cruel hand,
Or one whose battles, on his soul, did rend,
With marks of war, a survivor of the land?”
For entrepreneurs, a harsh and trying fate,
In Nigeria’s embrace, they tread their path alone,
As governments, self-focused, do stagnate,
Their dreams, their futures carved from blood and bone.
The Unseen Struggles Unveiled
We celebrate the hustle, for in its midst, we find,
A bond that strengthens, in unity we bind,
Last week, my joy masked losses undefined,
In hunger’s grip, my chickens’ lives declined.
Three million Naira lost, their hunger grew,
Government policies, maize taken away,
Promises unkept, a trust that didn’t hold true,
In these tough times, we find a different way.
Rising Together in Unity
We bury eggs to save them from decay,
We mourn our losses as our chickens fall,
Starved by policies that led them astray,
In this unfair market, we must stand tall.
To change this path, we won’t remain confined,
We’ll rise as one; our hope will be our guide,
United, we’ll confront the trials designed,
To claim our rights together, side by side.
A Vision for Empowerment
So dare we dream, in unity, we soar,
We’ll occupy the seats that represent,
With hearts that feel us, we’ll strive for more,
Our salvation lies in our own intent.
In the world of Nigerian entrepreneurs, where the journey is laden with challenges and the path often lonely, unity emerges as our greatest strength. The struggles we face, the losses we bear, and the dreams we cherish bind us together in a powerful tapestry of resilience.
As we navigate these uncharted waters, we learn the importance of standing as one, of voicing our concerns, and of demanding change. It is in our unity that we find the power to rewrite our narrative, to shape policies that work in our favor, and to build a future where entrepreneurship thrives.
“I feel you, do you feel me?” These words resonate not just with me but with countless others who have walked this path. Let us carry the torch of unity forward, let our stories be heard, and let our dreams be realized. Together, we can overcome, and together, we can shape a brighter future for Nigerian entrepreneurs.
