We Are Born - Poem by Feranmi okafor

We are formed,
A preconceived bundle of love,
Each with a degree of awesomeness,
Not equally,
Each with a measure of greatness.

We are born,
Some with a silver spoon, some with eyes shining with hope like the moon,
Some with parents who have humble jobs; others, business tycoons.

Time,
The only equal thing between all of us,
Fleeting by quickly…

We will all die,
Some will be remembered; some forgotten,
For some, praises rendered; for some, curses tendered,
Stories will be told; stories untold,
Pleasant surprises; secrets unfold…

Avoiding the inevitable is inevitable,
Rejecting the possible isn’t possible,
Running will keep you running…
We are born…
