A Windowless Room - Poem by Gbolagade Taiwo

There is a room
It is the last room for Everyman
A room that has no window
The key to the room is always left behind
The poor will posses the room
The rich will not be taken away from it
You who live life like it's not going to end
You have placed your gigantic houses as your gods
your wealth has ruled over your life
You do not think you will end in a windowless room
A room that cannot be avoided
Look at your past
Ask for your ancestors
Where are they today?
All of them are sleeping in the windowless room
See everything you have as opportunity
They are just meant to be with you for a while
That you have them does not mean you will take them
They are always left behind
A windowless room is not free for anything
It is only meant for you
And there, you will see the reward of the life you lived when on earth.
