Who Would Have Thought? - Poem by Edgar James Momoh

From obscurity to stardom he rose,
Barely surviving on shoe-lace privileges as he grew up.
Unbeknownst to himself and the world around,
That one day, he will stand at the pinnacle of the world's stage
With stunning talents to grace his days

Who would have thought that out of obscurity,
Will rise nobility of such magnanimity
That one can only liken to destiny...
Yet again the saying comes to mind,
'Can anything good come out of Nazareth'? Is left to prove

From the far lands of his fathers, his genes swam the Indian ocean
Fighting every obstacle along the way with grace
As he focused on the race ahead
That a 'King' had once dreamed...'one day we shall overcome'
When the rainbow displays its seamless tapestry of the human race

Who would have thought that a grain of wheat that died
Will bear such bountiful harvest in this season
That only grace would grant...
Yet again the saying comes to mind,
'I have a dream, that one day...' Is here to prove
