I know a river

I know a river;
long before I began to 
hold a pen
those days of-
-"twinkle, twinkle little 
star"
I know a river;
A river of words; 
not river-benue or 
river-niger
But its a  river that 
flows in human-
imagination
And a paper is made as 
a boat
-paddled with pen
To sail a message to 
the earth
From heaven's gate
-a lullaby to the infant 
and wise-words to the 
adult
I know a river; 
Shakespeare and 
others've been to the 
river
-they took their bathe 
and left
Today,
Here I stood by the 
river bank,
With my colleagues 
Akewusola habib, 
Oludipe samuel,
muhammad-ahmad 
-Rasak-malik-
Gbolahan, Randy 
michael, Oloidi kingfemi 
and others
In the young of our 
days 
Bathing in the  river of 
words
Though we're nude in 
the river 
But we're clothe with 
our imaginations
I know a river;
A river from solomon's 
source 
Now I am swimmer,
-in its floods
Adesitimi Taiwo Damilola.
