[Poem] CHIDUBEM

There come a time when
The matter is dissected into the form
The accounts are audited and sentences parsed
Deep calls on deep
Time becomes that bossy servant
Resources become endangered species

But all that surfaces is emptiness, error and inability.
Giving up becomes fast food ready to be served
But after awhile there’s a dusting up, a standing up
A ray of light pierces into the darkness

And a voice echoes like a Nollywood ghost saying
Keep on keeping on
For life has never been fair
You must live not just exist.
He makes it who perseveres
You are a decision that has not dawned

Cos improvement is endless
With the Greater one inside of you
CHIDUBEM remains the name
For HE guides, leads you always
To green pastures and springs of water.
