Poetry

WE ARE THE FUTURE YOU SEEK By Fatai Ismail Omobolaji

Written by Editor

We are the future not the unfortunate herbs

We are the back that looks the back of your back

We are the wish you seek at the nooks of your dwellings, kneeling, crying and beseeching

We are the one that cause you miserable pain before we could live

We are the one that lessen your sleep to snooze and end your dreams in the middle of the night

You cherish, feed, punish, pardon us, yet, we did not know because we are the future not the one who remain in the past

When growing up, you care, labor, because of us and pray for us

Just for us to be alive

we are the future not the one who remain in the past

we kept secret from you and separate from your life as we grew up because we are the future not the one who remain in the past

And we also seek the future of our end who do not remain in the past
