When You Lay The Past To Rest - Poem by Bolami lawal

Do not imagine i feel less of your pains,
The yearning of your soul
Like a burning flame,
The panting of your heart
Like a dying toad;
I know you're trapped between two worlds,
Your strength is dwindled within the huddles,
Your hope is drenched and torn in grieves.

I know your heart is weary from aches,
Your tears had failed to ease your hurt,
Still, i trust in time to heal your wounds;
If you drop the burden of rift,
The scar will fade away as smoke,
You'll spread your wings and fly again,
You'll scale so high on eagle's wing;
When you lay the past to rest!
