Here And Now - Poem by Cash Onadele

A pale apparition torments your soul
Urging you to leave this homeland
Telling you that living abroad is better,
Guess what, every word heinous and untrue.
Some of us have experienced it before
Taking advantage of broken hopes and talents
A little time to know your foreign suitors
Soon, you would know this homeland is much your paradise as mine
Familiar is that look, I have seen it in the mirror several times
Why look of dismay, subsequent to your foreign encounter?
There is a glass ceiling embedded for your kind
You thought you won, our kisses no more than an epilogue to an arduous tale?
What am I looking at? Look at yourself,
Such is your preoccupation with your past
That you have not paid attention to the present.
Have you considered what may transpire in your future?
Apparently, you are missing out on this moment
Here, now and now in your homeland
Do you not see how beautiful you are?
What you can contribute to the greater good?
Look here and now!
