Have I lost my baby to the tomb?
I fed her with my breasts
Can my baby escape the Boko nests?
I carried her on my back
Will I ever have my baby back?
She went in search of knowledge
Within the walls of Chibok college
Her only crime was her dare to dream
Judged. Guilty! By beasts of Boko team!
She wanted to be a doctor
Now she faces a AK47 instructor
She wanted to inspire change
Today she weeps in firing range
She wanted to roam the earth
Alas, she gives terrorist mirth!
Who will bring back my girl?
She is my one and only pearl!
