A New Born Child - Poem by Emmanuel Damilola Adeyemo
The birth of a new child
Springs forth a contagious form of joy.
It distributes a new hope to nurse
And new dreams to follow.
It shares a new future to realize,
A new song to sing,
Even new visions to accomplish.
Though the labour pain might be overwhelming,
But not even nostalgia can bring it back
At the sight of a new born child.
Through great chaos, labours and strifes,
A new hope has finally come,
A new song is on their tongues
And with joy they gladly sing.
A new child has been born
And South Sudan is her name.
Congratulations to his mother- Sudan
And a bigger one to our aged mama.
Another feather has been added to Africa’s wings,
We hope she’ll help her fly over poverty.
