DREAM: UNTIL I'M THERE (A Poem Composed Aare Tunde Dawood-Akerele)

It's a dream

Conceived by no one but me

To be pursued by no one but me

Aim at greatness, fame and legendary

Until its accomplishment, until I'm there.


It's a dream.

Aiming greatness

Set for all that it takes

Not minding the morass

Ignoring those pessimists

More among friends than foes

Fewer among strangers than relations

Scheming with different antics, games

Aiming at quenching the salvos, flames

Questioning my vision and doggedness 

Querying His unwavering supports, aids

Oh! Sometimes seems losing the battles

But never I quit until I'm there and no less.


Truly, it's hard like a nut

Seldom feel like quitting

Or like saying bye to it

Running away from it

Resigning to fate

Abandoning it

As it tarries

To quit?

But no! 

Until 

Done.


It's a dream!

The name will ring

The world will hear

And will tell the next 

A footprint must be left 

Like those that had gone

That had achieved greatly

Whose names last evergreen

Etched in gold, on the marble

Quoting, mentioning, using daily

Never I relent until I'm there, it's done.


It's a dream

That mustn't die

I'd stand unawed by all odds

Keep its flame burning glowingly

Lean on His grace, mercy and blessings

Until the world raises it hands, clap for me 

Says well done, kudos, gracias, thank you.

Until I stand tall, tell the world, it's done. I'm there.
