Bring Back Our Girls Written by: Melvina Germain


Thunder cracked their silence of sleep.
Wretched men, horrid thieves emerged.
Kidnapping our most precious jewels,
Many boisterous slaves of Satan rules.Evil blasted through the walls of peace,
and that cadence so held within the air
soon faded to ruptured horror feared.
Shock filled, terror building screams.
Our innocent ripped from peaceful dreams.

To the hands of filth and angry men,
we weep buckets of tears wanting to see
our girls again. Mothers, Fathers, pain so
stricken, “Bring Back Our Girls” to the land
of the living.

We pray our girls are held without pain,
and empty threats in our media heard.
When silence befalls such lips of horror,
despicable images in minds emerge.

O the world seems silent, in shock we sit.
Every man and woman knows not what to do.
We can only pray that those in power, will
forcefully come after the likes of you.

May the higher power intervene and show
our girls a means of escape. May Jesus
walk within the scene and hold on tight to
our precious beings. Lord don’t take them
home O no not yet, bring them safe and
sound to a parents safety net.

Bring Back Our Girls Father, I know you can,
there’s nothing in this world bigger than you.
I pray in the name of your son, Jesus Christ,
our world is now depending on you.

Bring Back Our Girls

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
