If we must die,

Let it not be at the expense of iPhones as symbols of luxury

Let it not be at the mercy of dreadlocks

Let it not be for our failures to hide our bank accounts

Let it not be for the colors of our hair

Or the jewelries on our necks.

If we must die,

Let it not be for the youthfulness we possess

Let it not be for the labels you create

Let it not be for jettisoning our harsh realities

Let it not be for the number of our tweets

Or our feet on the streets.

If we must die;

Oh! Let us nobly die

Warring on our knees in prayer

Wailing for the dead, living, and unborn

Walking till our rights are established

Tunde Nafiu

Ifeoma Abugu

Jimoh Isiaq

We remember your names

If we must die,

Let us nobly die.
