There is a place I call home

A place where I feel loved

A place where I am accepted

The colour of my skin does not matter here

The intonation of my speech is of no consequence

I am free to live without the fear that someday I will be seen as a stranger

My people will never treat me as if I am different from them

They will always stand by me

They believe in me

No, matter what I pass through

I am glad because they have my back

Where indeed can be compared to home?

Nigeria is my home

There could never be a place like her

I love her; she is all I have

I will stand by her because she stood by me

I will love her because she loved me

I accept her because she accepted me first

Despite the disrespect accorded to her by others

I will always respect her

She’s God’s gift to humanity

She is the most beautiful place that has ever existed

There is definitely no place like my home
