Treasure Island

Ogwo David Emenike

(Nigeria)

Down, But Not Beaten


I may be down now
Wallowing in mud of failure, disappointment and discouragement
I may be in pains now
In deadly earnest to find peace
Shame and reproach
Lurking around my being
I may have given in to despair
Cos I'm in a tunnel
With neither light nor hope
Weep not for me, oh fellow
I'll find my courage back
To rise on my feet again and move forward
When I rise
You'll sing a new song

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
