My reflections

Written by: Kolapo Olapoju

I am the 
enigma 
the 
world 
has 
failed to 
understand
i am a 
mystery 
beyond 
my own 
comprehension
i stood 
toe to 
toe with 
the 
agents 
of 
disdain,
and 
smiled.

i 
perpetually 
root for 
the 
underdog.
i dwell 
in the 
underground,unconventional, 
genre.
i'm 
fascinated 
by 
villains.

my 
heart is 
lost on 
an 
island in 
fiji,
i'm 
saving 
up miles 
to re-
unite 
with her.

i'm not 
one for 
conventions, 
but i 
adjust,
i try.
compromise 
has 
always 
been an 
option.
i abhor 
cliches 
but i live 
with 
them.
i've 
never 
been 
content 
with 
mediocre,
but the 
earth 
somehow 
expects,ordinary,
to 
suffice.

Words, 
my tool, 
gift and 
weapon.
i always 
seem to 
be at 
odds 
with the 
elements,
my 
supposed 
wingman.
Money, 
the fuel 
of 
existence,
i desire 
above 
others

In a 
nutshell,
there 
goes my 
reflections.
Rather, 
some of 
it.
