Blanket For My Son - Poem by Abdullah Musa

If you ever live
Incase I never be
Though in my memoir you did

Dear Son,
This world is a mirage to those who don't want to see

Anything is capable of everything
That which made you sad could have make you smile

Let the blanket protect you
In the winter
When the snow of frustration fall on you
And in the summer when the haze of rejection and
loneliness rain

Dear Son,
When you see obstacle
Present it courage

When you feel weak
Have determination

When frustration seat on you
It is opening your door of realization

When you don't have
Get through finding to give

Sometimes the rain might have to beat you
for life test our patience

Dear Son,
Do not hate do not regret
And when all throw at you
Let your admirable lucidity rescue you from the absurd

Though in plenitude pain I waft
Plenty invisibilities I saw

In the pinnacle of success
Know those who befriends your wealth

In case I never be
Even though you haven't be
In my memoir you be, so
Take what I can give
A blanket.
