Treasure Island

Morakinyo Temiloluwa Bolarinwa

(2/9/1992 / Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria)

LORD of CHANCE


Two roads diverge in a yellow wood,
definitely I must do what I should,
the woods hum in a hopeless mood,
hungry but needless of food.

After every road lies a difference,
I know that with no pretence,
one must come, the fill or the absence,
so waiting is of no essence.

Though laying long before me is lofty ignorance,
yet action is the Lord of Chance.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
