To A Great Man - Poem by Imisioluwa O. Owonikoko

Liv'in in a world as this
Where the future looks with bleak
Yet with Passion you refuse
T'be caught in the clutch of it's fist

Moving as fast as you could
Never t'be an object to be booed
Years and years still you stood
Giv'in all you could, not t'be moved

As you celebrate this day
Remember the Sacrific'es you've made
And how our lives your Impact's changed
And here we stand, our mouths with Praise

Now you are an example of one we could say
As earned to himself as of today

Grace in it's place
Strength that doesn't fail
And Character that's this Great.

Happy Birthday to you big brother.
Owonikoko Olusola Charis.
You are Great.
