My Jewel

Written by: Opeyemi Oluwafemi Adebayo

Although not so precious, yet so relevant
Like an alluring-winsome lass it attract
Minutes out of sight a journey never dreamt
Femme-fatale for the pert that draws near to it

Appealing is it work before the gloom’s call
Of an intermit for a jaguar’s travel
When is thy return to cure my ceasing heart?
That soon succumbs to the lifelong wind’s call
