My Dream: My Vision - Poem by Abdulaziz Ahmad Abdulaziz Fagge

I dreamt a big dream
Of countless people with drums
Gently drumming, mimicking the
Rhythmic sound of my rhythmic poem

A cloudless sky in its blues
With swallows swinging and singing
In pleasure and admiration of my poem

Bright morning sun smiling at me
While trees bows in respect of me
And leaves dancing for the sake of me
All praising in the best of tone for me

In an inexpressible mysterious forest, rocks I saw
Scrambling and screaming for they want to meet me
A leopard run after me and shower kisses on my cheeks
A titanic lion lean on my shoulder so proudly and gladly

When I entered a cosmopolitan all the multi-storey
Buildings doff their hats for me, their doors bangs
Gently following the rhythm of my poem and the
Windows clapping hailing my unprecedented poetic talent

All and sundry came out en masse and so elated
Males, females, elderly and children from everywhere
Some were running as some crawls to me
Yikes! It was fanfare for nothing but me

“We admire you because your poems inspire us
We adore you because your poems serve as
Solvent to our quasi-insoluble qualms
We love you because your poems comforts us
You often give clue against or aching qualms
Are you sent from above? Are you an angel?
Live here with us for you are messiah
You’re our saviour, you’re our livener
You’re our hero, you’re our masterminded lot!

“You imbibe hope in us and subtract its lessness
From our minds, you sow patience in our inner beings
You gladden our minds through your nice verses
You remind us of the hereafter, thus making us shedding
Crocodile’s tears in remembrance of our last home


“You teach us on vast issues,
With you in our midst nothing will worry us
You entertain us, you educate us,
You make us informed, you also preach us
We abhor not you!
Don’t go away be with us...”

Appeals they made, questions
They asked caring they show
In great jubilation and enthusiasm
As they crowded me held me
Lean on me and kissing me
So affectionately.
