The Birthday Of An Hero - Poem by RUFAI YUSUF
Great day comes around as usual
On this special day, I was awaken by the
Screeching sound of the bats and the
Grunting sound of the alligators.
I opened my eyes and I looked around
I saw that the birds were singing.
It was then I got myself thinking
I started imagining what was going on
I asked myself ‘why all these sounds? '
While asking myself this question, I heard another sound,
What was the sound?
Firstly, it was the humming sound of the bees
Secondly, I heard the eagle screaming
Followed by the clucking sound of the chicken.
It was then I noticed that today is a special day
Somebody is being celebrated by these sounds I've been hearing
I know today marked the day a hero was born
I know today is a special day
Today is a great man's birthday
I know the usual day has come around.
Happy Birthday sir, Maolana Sheik Ibraheem Akodu
He is a father
He is a mentor
He is a role model
He is a man that commends success
He is a man that looks upon life as an adventure
He is a man that always eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak
He is the accomplishment of what most people think cannot be accomplished
He is a problem solver
He is a father and mother to the orphans
He is the greatest among the greats
He is a man that doesn't support impatience
He is a man of talent
He is a man of success
His encouraging words are catalyst for the execution of good plans
In fact! To crown it all, he is a confidant.
