In the light of the day they came
Taking our girls into captivity
Giving them a new name
Damsels in distress
No ransoms asked
No reasons given
Leaving us hollow
With no choice but to follow
Night and day we marched
Bodies piling up in our wake
All, fallen men of valor
Who gave their lives for our sake
Religion gives us prayers
Our country gives us weapons
All to strengthen our faith
So that we march again
With renewed strength and hope
That we bring our girls home.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
