Don't Surrender - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Season comes,
Season vanishes,
Its a cosmic design
If the wind is contrary
And the cloud is awry
Never beat yourself
When the present is blurred
If the future is bleak
When travail encircles
If you're caged and pigeon-holed
All around is vacuum
Don't surrender!
Even if you're pummeled
Like a gasping boxer
Never throw in the towel
Don't be quick to surrender
Persist, march on
Be like a Spartan soldier
Let the champion in you arise
Avoid self blame
Courageously up the game
No retreat, no surrender
