THE NIGERIAN YOUTHS ARE NOT LAZY!






Do you hear the morning buzz?
As early as 4 a.m
Even before the birds of the sky
Awaken in their nest
Do you hear the hustle and the bustle
The blaring horns and loud shouts 

As the day officially begins?



We rise up, the cock crows, our alarm

As we prepare our mind and body

For another day under the sun

This hustle is all we know

We have carved niches for ourselves
Struggling to prevail against all odds
When our years in the tertiary system came to naught
And our certificates, reduced to sheets of paper



We have become entrepreneurs
Botanical stylists!
Engineering marketers
Driving bankers
And oh! Teaching sociologists


In a system where we are constantly failed
We continuously thrive
Refusing to give up
With our hard earned prosperity
Holding up that which is left
Of the laughable state of this economy




They fail to realize
That this giant our nation remains
Our youths have upholded it so
Their strength and valour, rival to none
Daring to succeed against all odds


So the hustle which began at 4
Shall carry on till night
All for a nice meal, good shelter
A life of comfort




Then on the morrow we shall resume
This unending cycle of struggle
With hopes of 'E go be'
As we smile and love in our labour
Even in a system that discourages us daily




Still, they carry on
In their fancy clothes
And fancy suites
Lazying in A.C's installed with our sweat
Yet, we are the lazy ones?
Well, we all know who the joke is


I BELIEVE IN THE NIGERIAN YOUTH

You are right young people are not lazy at all, they are active all the time but they do not get a good ground which is why they are not able to hone their skills.

You are 100% correct @Zizy.

We should just ignore their lapses and focus on what we have to do. We believe in ourselves since the Federal Government and other  paras tatters has failed us youths. 

We will not give up. We should keep pushing in order to achieve great things and prove them wrong!

#PROOVE THEM WRONG IS THE CODE!

Yes Nigerian youths are not lazy, but a good no. Of them are over dependent on the country.....

it mavelled me to know that my friend who went to the university to study computer sciences could not program a simple calculator.... Now, his counterparts are coding and selling programs for millions of dollars in the name of crypto currency..

yes the country is bad, yes Nigerian youths are not lazy, but we need creativity and diligence in our fields....

reduce dependence on Gov. Money✊
