Gone Days - Poem by Alaghde Kelvin Terngu

Gone are the days when i cried myself to sleep hoping for miracle at dawn
gone are the dayswhen i cried till my heavy heart was lightened up
gone are the days

Today, i shape my world
today, i step out and takes whats mine
today, i discovered the hidden potentials in me
today, i step out not to mingle with hateful people
today, i set to achieve my goals
today, i make my decisions
today, i ignore your corrupt advise
today, i must tell the world africa must rise
today, i step out to make it
today, i look into your eye and put a middle finger
today, i'm no more me of the past
