Supplication - Poem by Joseph Oladehinde Ibikunle

When my earthly
watchtower crumbles;
And the wailing
of my kindred rumbles,
When it comes
to the end of the day,
May I have
some sweet songs to say,
Build for me
but a home therein;
A place for
endless bliss within,
My Saviour,
this is my supplication.
