At Last Uhuru! ! - Poem by Ike Bismarck Oji

Long ago, was it diagnosed
Yet, to prove it took time.
With a single sentence
I was sentenced to freedom.

Freedom from expecting love
When there was only like
Freedom from seeking a life union
While a day long glance was offered

Freedom from giving so much
To receive so little
Freedom from suspense and anxiety
While away ebbed my confidence

Freedom from grabbing the non-existent
When nothing was the existent
Freedom from building on an illusion, well clad
When reality was a truth, stark naked

Freedom to paddle elsewhere my canoe
and fish my catch.
