IF I HAD KNOWN By Odusanya Oladimeji

Written by Editor

I desire riches, I desire success,
I hired Hardwork for less stress,
That’s our Consensus at the other side,
Goodness and Mercies, My only Pride,
All Roses, All Reddish, I decide!

Will have argue Patience,
I thought I’ve bribed Time all alone,
Bet9ja was my Saviour in abeyance,
1x, 2x and Over1.5 betray Me with no license,
I lost my token, if I had known.

Will have seek for Knowledge,
I thought I was king Solomon’s Lineage,
Marketing job, My Remedy, I do,
Walk through Taraba to Columbia,
Success, Where are you?,
‘All eyes close’- Time flies!

But Mama said, Life is full of Success,
Success is Me like Honey is Bee,
They are in your hands, My Success? Yes!,
The Limit is You, Not Girls, Not Friends!,
Can’t bribe Time and Never wait to address,
Me! My Success!, IF I Had Known!
