The Patient Wait

by Asiru Abdullahi aged 18

Dear 2018,
Amidst perilous travails, pain and despondency,
From families and friends, haters and enemies,
All life challenges and adversities,
Yet I’ve come so far!

Amidst exasperating outbursts and appalling criticisms,
All in a bid to put me off my dreams for 2019,
To cast me out of its success streams,
To wreck my success ferry, I hardly scaled through,
Yet I’ve come so far!

Amidst several breakups and shattered relationships,
Rejections, scorns from hypocritical friends,
Academic traumas cum failures here and there,
Yet I’ve come so far!

So far to achieve my desires intact,
To make things right for me,
To rid myself from limitations of the past,
And vanquish forces of malevolence with great valour,
To ensue a brand new year with the right motivations,
Indeed we met to part_and never part to meet.
