A Poet Poem by Diipo Fagbolu

A Poet

Rating: 4.3

I used to dream of butterflies
Of dancing slowly with raindrops
And walking in the moonlight

I used to believe in mermaids
In the fairy tales grandma told
I used to fear "Ojuju Kalabari"

Used to find mirth in little nuances
In the rhythm of passing clouds
And the croak of frogs in backyard

I used to see without lenticular help
I used to chase lizards with rocks
I used to fly kites and pick flowers

I used to versify those dreams
Of smiles and the illumination of
Sunsets and morn' brightness

I used to daydream about tomorrow
While listening to the songs of ants
In the grasses on our playing field

I have followed the dreams thus far
Not without pains and strains
And not without sweats of blood

I have cried some and laughed
I have lost battles and won and
Grown to be and become me
