I Was Self Seeking - Poem by HAKAM ABUBAKAR

I could have

made it out

But i thought

only about me.

Methinks, ii should

have told myself

that as seasons alter

so do people.

24 months ago

A sun shone for me

i know not which sun

will ever shine again

for me.

For me to keep off

the rain, a mackintosh

I got to don

God cause to

Make me understand

The variation in people.

I thought only about myself

And misunderstood it all

I was self seeking

Self seeking indeed.
