Letter From Father - Poem by EZEKIEL HARUNA DANBAKI

To you O' son of mine I cannot give
A vast estate of fields and rooms
I have no influence that ensures you a ready place
Among men of wealth and affluence
I have no bequest of Gold refined
To pave your path to fame and eminence
But I lift to God in secret audience - unceasing prayers for you

Sometimes when nothing goes just right
When life mutates into fussilades of chaos
When sorrow feasts on your meagre happiness
And your countenance is patterned in tears and aches
When you are burdened by loads of injustice
And the world seems cruel and unkind
When you wake at the dawn of a gloomy morn
And fears become your jailer
Lift to God unceasing prayers
O' my son, thence come your help
