“Bring Back Our Girls”

Bring Back Our Girls

Bring Back Our Girls

 

Bring back our girls!

Their journeys have only just begun.

The first words on their life’s book

are just being written.

The first line of their life’s song

is just being sung!

Bring back our girls!

They’re full of hopes and dreams

educating themselves

into a brighter future.

Can you hear their mothers’ screams?

Bring back our girls!

Their brothers and sisters from distant lands

want them returned

to the arms of their families

and into safer hands.

Bring back our girls!

Kidnapping is a crime

you’re stealing not only bodies

but dreams, rights, sanity and valuable time.

Bring back our girls!

We’re pleading for their lives.

They’re not yet grown women

but mere girls in school trying to learn…

not ready to be wives!

BRING BACK OUR GIRLS!!
