I See Potential

Featured Poem by Olusola Bamisile (BB). All rights reserved ©

As I journey from one city to another in Nigeria

And recount all the experiences embedded in every moment

I could have decided to enunciate about the lows

Or maybe even join the existing headlines and speak of the anomalies

But I choose to see the potential in this nation

The sincere hustle of industrious entrepreneurs

The faith of the religious who earnestly pray day and night for change

The hope in children and youths who long for a brighter future.

Although there is continuous exodus of talents from this nation

The genesis of the future is here and a lasting Change has kicked off

I join my faith with the religious

I join my hope with that of children and the youths

And I see this decade as one that is strategic for this country

The wind of change is blowing gradually

The showers of new dawn has started with a microscopic droplet

Lift your head dear Nigeria because your appointed time is here.

As for me and my household, we belong to the caucus  that sees the greatness in Nigeria
