Here I am

Written by: Adesina Idris Dolapo

Here I am...
.. Helpless...
Looking up for help
But finds none
... For help that exists 
not..
... For help that comes 
not..

Here I am...
... Poor...
.. But surrounded by 
affluence
.. But surrounded by 
wealth
.. Wealth that is mine
.. But I can't use
.. Wealth that has been 
taken from me..
.. Not legally
By those who...

Poor I am..
Helpless I am..
Wealth I see
But can't touch..
Affluence I feel
But can't use..

Here I really am..
Helpless and poor.
But note...
... Hopeless I am not..

For I know that...
Help cometh soon.. 
Wealth comes after..
Affluence follow will..

.. But when...
I know not...
