Song of Atonement / A Poem/ Dada Olaoluwa

Onward like soldier,                       Courage carries me,                       gazing the future                             though faintly.                             “The future” said they                     “comes always late when.                coming big”.                                This has solaced me.                       Why thy cruelty earth?                    Answer me, oh earth!                       You house many thorns,                    to obstruct my speed.                       Yet I solace in order                          ‘gainst the creed of other.                                    Cos vital is it compared to                 Speed.                                                I shall see the other side                  of you, oh earth!
