When You Come - Poem by macaulay akinbami

When you come,
Bring us all the hopes
We wait too long as this journey steals time love
When you come,
Pride not yourself
It is natural to all
You are not the better by distance
When you come, walk lowly without a show
A wisdom all sojourner must lean,
It is no time for shame in the many unachieved goals
When you come,
Seek new friends with caution while learning wisdom from the old
When you come,
The cause
Is just a bag that cannot speak? (Of whatever)
Or a the vehicle that must be controlled
Or a house useless when the owners are dead
Or certificates too many thought to be your gains
And chevron of vanity in paper form (that can burn in flames)
When you come
Be prudent
Be conscious
Be humble in comportment and from your heart to HIM
If ever you come
Deal in love and with love
If you ever come again as we hope not,
Make it right that your pride has wronged
