The last thing I never want to hear
How did you go from IS to Was?
Is it just the tenses?
Or just a statement?
Do you remember the name you gave me?
It was just after my birth
You aided to wash my infant head
You talked a lot about peace
You taught a lot about love
You loved a lot about God
Don't you think it's rude?
To leave without saying goodbye?
How did you go from IS to WAS?
Please don't make me say it
I just don't want to accept it
Because the last thing I never want to hear is
To Patience Nwozichi Eluwa
