ILE AYE (THE WORLD) By Ebenezer O Ayoade

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

a baby cries aloud
h

the people shout
there atmosphere becomes
sorrow-happy.
before the baby was handed to his mother

ecstasy overwhelms the mother
solemnly the father embraces the joy ;
thinking of how party will be thrown out, how mouths Will be fed and how the gift will be raised in faded shirts and trousers

now, the unnamed baby becomes named with a name “AYE”
AYE grows rapidly in contrary to the time, she’s pregnant of dreams, Aye is full of hopes .
Her expectation is as huge as ocean
she daydreams of her future and neglects her background
She imagines beyond the margin of her parents.

the welcome of AYE to this
infinite AYE is strongly against
the bliss AYE is yet to derive,
all her hopes are being stunted
and grown only within her heart .

AYE’S parent in faded shirts and trousers,
give no indulgence to AYE’S proposal to stunt AYE’S dreams,
and give their best till she makes hay under the harshness of sun.

” A successful person is parents’ pride”
It is parental responsibility to rebuild the hopes of their children when world seems to be a place that halts dreams and children get worried of how to make exploit.

“Less of a boy that turns bad, much more of his parents”
