Treasure Island

Olalekan Joseph Ajayi

Destiny


My ink had dried up and my feather caked
But her voice bade me …write!

They named me after a dreamer
The dreamer who foretold the future
Yet I knew not what awaited me in the land of Unity
The Fates blew me towards the Rock
The Rock harboured by the King and his men

Last season, I met Destiny…
My teacher instructed me to guide Destiny
Now Destiny has taken over my dreams
A Dreamer, all I see is Destiny
Yet, with my tongue I draw water from her eyes
I long to suck from her and to be part of her
Alas! The child in me unveils itself
I haven't known many maidens
A few only have seen my pride

I have fallen for Destiny
Destiny has my secrets in her heart
The secrets of the Prince
I long to possess Destiny
That our loins may fraternize

Destiny is my Muse
I have rediscovered my voice
The word flows in me:
I desire Destiny!
