Treasure Island

Fidelis Nwaugba

(12th April 1985 / Lagos)

want to be legend


I was thrown away
Flung to a lost distance
My mind took to a journey
Plying the path of fantasy
Even as i seduced thoughts
Imaginations consistent with bliss
Yet i have no faith in reality
Still i must live on and bear it all
The gloom at night and the heat at day
My hustles must persist
For i am a man driven by his own dreams
I am a slave of my own vision
Dragged with by the chains of my unrelenting will
I have no options but to succeed
To make something of my life
And be relevant to history
I was caught up when my eyes fell on them
The men and women whose memory history will not give up
The strain of time will not strike out their works
And their great achievements
My dream is my burden
A load i am willing to bear
Until i am strapped on the wall of fame
And have become legend

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
