Still I Stand. - Poem by Alade Abayomi Idris

Riding on the tide

Into the wide

Where men soar with pride

Or writhe all side.


The trough so tough

Harbour rotten bough

Paddling so rough

That canoes cough.


Against the armies of the sea

Titanic with its titan ornament sink

Kayakians with their malnourished kayak perish


Like many perishers

Failed me, oars maneuvering prof taught

Still I stand

Sail slowly

In total submission

To flapping wings of the wind

That troubled the trough.
