Babatunde Aremu


Togetherness


We are entwined
On board the same canoe
We paddled together
Drenched by rain together
Dried by sunshine as one
Tossed by sea waves in oneness
Calmed by sea breezes
We remained unbroken cords
Despite the odds
We are still together
Going along the paths
That's how to make the trip
Life trips cannot be enjoyed
On the paths of loneliness
So, let's be together always
