In a World surrounded by Me
there are;
Beautiful minds that show
what I can be capable of
Bodies that do things...
...things Mine has a potential for

Humans are Me
Me in different colourful forms
I am Human
Human in a colourful form

In a World surrounded by remarkable Me's
What can I do, to pay my due
To contribute and excel
Excel, in all my nature given gifts

To remember that
In a world where I am human
and humans are me
I have the ability to be remarkable too

As human in a colourful form
I can paint uniquely in the role I am meant to play
never to envy, never to hate, but to be
To be Human in a world surrounded by Me
Don't worry, seeking your purpose or the role you play on earth is a very human thing to do. You are on time.
It will be well
You will remember these days as history,
thankful, and grateful for your struggles
The blood spilled will have justice

You will look back to today
Thankful for creating a better Nigeria
You will look back to today
grateful you didn't give up
This poem is dedicated to the protest and unrest currently going on in Nigeria.
You should know me
well enough,
to know that I don't linger
where i am not wanted.
And that time came
After those feverish anticipation
The time to let go
I think of you
like it what i need
I think of you
even  though it seems toxic
I think of you
like my next breath

when will my mind turn logical?
when will i become free?
when will your memories let me go?

I think of you
because i have no choice
I think of you
because i can't seem to stop
Chances are draining and I am waiting
The line is stretching and I might give in
feed me or I might be fed by another
it is a gift you're tossing
a diamond you're losing
the best thing that is slipping

Slipping into the hands of another
Words you didn't say were said by another
Actions you didn't perform were done by another
Things you didn't notice were admired by another
It is slipping and the best thing might be leaving

The clock is ticking and you are losing
The other is waiting for the trophy
Its time for checking and you got nothing
You never remembered when you gave up the best thing

That best thing that ever happened to you is lost to the other.
Don't leave potential needs in life hanging, you might regret after it is being taken away. #regrets#pastimes
The cold wind blows in
I stand to close my window
But then I stopped
I think of the children out there
Freezing in the air of winter

My heart aches,
What can I do to help?
Little as I was I felt the pain
I thought of everything I had
And realized how blessed I am

Once upon a time,
I loved to spend
Never cared for anyone but me
Once upon a time
I wanted wealth
Once upon a time'

But yesterday,
A revolutionary born in me
My reincarnation I believe to be
I dedicate my life, not to wealth and power
But to the life of others

Today as I lay under my warm blanket
With the rain drumming on my roof
And the wind swishing on the wall
I remember those outside
With no blanket, no roof, no wall
Then I knew, without doubt
My goal in life.
