Josiah Yakspirt Yakubu
Saturday 11 June 2022


Tears flowed like the oceans sea 

Regrets engulfed the mind with a plea 

Loss of fortunes increases daily

Lost of acquaintance that is so dearly

All my constructed goals were scattered 

The beautiful garment I wore was tattered

The business failed and brought no gain

My heart was broken and left in pain

The South has great trouble

The North is a den of rumble 

There seems to be morning at noon

The sun appeared instead of the moon

I have had my share of losing

I must arise and start winning

Though I failed all the way

I failed because I did it my way

It is time and the giant victor must arise

Amidst failure, I must arise 

My fears I must face them all

It is time to conquer my foes all 

I will be great again, like a palm tree so tall.

Yes it is time

Because now I have someone by my side
