Elegy for our Lekki heroes - Jackson Daniels

Tell my mother I was unarmed

Tell my father I had the flag in my hands when I was shot

Tell the unborn Generation that I died a hero singing the national anthem.

Tell the cowards who shot me that my spirit lives on in the life of every Nigerian youth.

Tell the goverment that they can shoot my body but not my spirit.

Tell the world I died for freedom

I regret nothing, for I have done what my father's couldn't do.

My prints will forever remain in the sands of time

Remove my boots, take my voice and hand it over to the next youth.

For I know that freedom is coming tomorrow.
