*Face of Evil*

October 29, 2020

By Wilson Eseme*

In search for food in a land where many walk in hunger
For faith in a land where many walk in fear
For friends and companionship  in a land where many walk alone
For light in a land where many walk in darkness
For justice in a land where many walk oppressed
For Education in a land where many walk ignorant
And for peace in a land where many walk in fear
They dared to attend classes
Hoping for a better future
Thinking they would be safe
They were wrong
Their young lives cut short
Before they even began
There is no greater evil
There can not be any greater evil
Than the one that takes the life of the innocent
Please God
Take their souls 
Cut them into little pieces
Make them shine in heaven
Over the faces of their killers 
For all to see
The face of evil!

*Dr Eseme Wilson is President of the Cameroon Federalist Society and the poem was written in the wake of the brutal killing of students in a classroom in Kumba, South West Region of Cameroon
