When a journey turns good
Your contemporaries will
salute you in achievers’ terms
Ekwueme, ka ikwu ko di – you have done exactly
Unsuccessful journeys invite comments and counselors
If we all know a journey that will turn good
We would embark
Are like a walk on thorns and thistles.
In a bush with voracious reptiles
With legions of demons
It is a courageous journey at night
Of rising hurricane, consuming temperatures
In isolated, infectious location
Where imagination goes haywire
A twin precipice
Outcome is not always as bad as the fears
Great result is at your feet
Go for it
If it is difficult for the swift to win the race
What advantage does the lame have?
Courage runs after the antelope with bare hands
Does not know one the thicket will entrap
Or one with leg injury
Be courageous and strong,
Is beyond today
It is life appeal
Giving meaningful outcome
Some call it Obama’s journey
His contemporaries now salute him in achiever’s terms
Ekwueme, ka iku ko di – you have done exactly.
Will you be courageous?
