Solomon Terlumun Tule is an accountant by profession with profound love for poetry. Most of my poems come from deep thought of my physical, social and mental environment during my quiet moments. Poetry enables me to share and express my thoughts, feelings and emotions to the world. I have written many unpublished poems such as; My Good Mother, If, Strength of a Woman, Spirit of Christmas, and lot more. To Solomon, 'success is a joy, failure a postponed success'. It's my desire that as you read my work you know that we are all created greatly in various ways. 'pay attention to your nature, assess others posture, and you will accept this gesture'. We ought to show gratitude to the creator amidst challenges. I am from Benue State, Nigeria.
When At Last I'm Gone
When at last I'm gone,
to my everlasting home.
what will be my lasting legacy?
will I be judged as one who had no mercy?
Will the guns I use lead me to a perfect place?
that I ran a good race?
will they say I was very bad?
making others often sad?
will they say I was peaceful?
or I will be tagged a troublesome fool?
will I receive a heavenly heir?
or rewarded a tormenting hell?
will I be called religious, ethnic and racial?
who was always never impartial?
what will really be said of me!
when at last I'm gone,
to my everlasting home.
