Treasure Island

Kenneth Umunna

(30th May 1986 / Lagos)


You think you can
I know you can
But calmer still your rage reserve
In quiet they all come your way
Though noise you may prefer to stay

They come and go
I know they do
But calmer still I plead remain
In calm they return and fuller will
1Though time may act against your will

We hope they come
I know where from
But priceless still I plead remain
In pay you never can repay
Though full to brim your pockets stay

From up above
He sends a dove
But heavier still the gift it bears
In weight much heavier than gold
Though not all bearers may be bold

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
