Dusted / Poem by Ugwu Leonard Elvis

Poem by Ugwu Leonard Elvis

 

Dusted

When I slip and fall
I stand in shame and dust my wears
People aside laugh and jest my fall for greater glory
I have fallen I will rise and continue the journey

It is a journey of no route,
Where lessons whip our knowledge
Though they wait for my doom
No curses shall prevail.

I am only guided by the shield from above
Conquer my spy enemies with a dove
A wise one will pity and come to my aid
Lest I stand and fly cos I am properly made.

Dusted it is!
I fall with no response but a tease
I will rise again to live my spot and continue the journey
Some day I shall look back and say it’s funny.

*Leonard D Great*
