ODODO

At the dusk of the day,
When all souls sojourn the dream land
The 'hood deserted
And the path grimy
While the arctic nurtures my skin
I care not for myself  
Deferring all thought
I walk the soggy valley to pluck a rose
Just for u!

Returning; the leaves
Clap in victory
The moon glows in sheer pride
So the trees dance gallantly
All to hail a hero;
More so; all for you

I thirst for this tick
Patiently relishing it
Living the beacon’s light
Just at its crescendo
It comes a stillbirth
Why haven’t I known?
It isn’t for you
•	ODODO means Rose in Yoruba Language
