Integrity - Poem by Okezie Kanu

He said he respects his word profoundly
That he does not speak any word in vain
He said he is the almighty
And that nothing happens outside his knowledge

I have come to see the truth in your word
I have seen your hands move
The words of your mouth
Have become life before my very eyes

Your integrity can only be imagined than compared
You can never be fair but have always been just
You do not consider what people may say
But have always done what has pleased your heart

You know the desires of our heart
But you have given us all that we ever needed
Because your thoughts are higher
You have seen our tomorrow and given us the rights things today

In the fullness of time, you’ve done your purpose
At the time of your visitation you have not stayed back
You have always been there
Because your mouth has spoken it
