Okonkwo Osamedua. Allen (Lagos- Nigeria)
Light of another day
Out of the sombre emptiness of the night
Creeps a strange dawn of another day.
Darkness melts into the winding-sheet of fog
Smell of freshness in my nostrils, and
The sound of waking life fills my ears
The day, it Seems resurrecting
From the grave of yesterday,
From the mire of her secret past
Into her place in scale of time
Some, there be, that had fallen,
Striken by the cunny hand of the slayer
To be forgotten and never again to rise.
But i have passed through her shaddows-
O Lord thank you! ! i know not how-
From the troubles of former things
And now, new spirit stir within me
Touch of the fresh morn' breeze, i am born anew.
I tested my feet, they can bear me
My eyes can see, O! still i breathe
I spread my wings, and follow the sun! !
