Bit By Bit

Sitting still on the bitter seat,
We were beaten seriously by the heat
Striving to beat the situation
We fell on the bridge of continuation
For it only goes bit by bit

We want to be the one to beat
To snatch from life, all our meat
Wanting to beat the record with tear
It's just like one beating the air
For it only comes bit by bit

But we stood on our feet
We are not filled with our wheat
Gathering all, we tried to rush
But we only beat around the bush
For we only get it bit by bit

Looking into the future with a bright eye
We see ourselves above the sky
From the womb to the tomb we always hope
But it seems we cannot cope
For it only get bright bit by bit

This then is the word for the world
Little here, little there when it is held
Makes that mighty ocean you can see
You can't form in one day, your desired sea
For it can only happen bit by bit
Agbola Oluseyi
