LONELY ROAD(a poem by Sunsampaul Egwu)
Noises were lost in mistiness,
The wind screaming amidst dancing trees;
Were journey dined with day and night.
Flash light from running vehicles chanting 'give way, give way,'
Bushes gossiping in a low tune.
A journey that seems unending,
A journey feeding on a lonely road.
Upon this road,
I drew close to Chad,
Even though my face look sad;
I still keep hope alive,
For I've a brighter life.
Even when darkness enveloped the road,
And when heavy wind slapped my face;
I still focused my direction to my destination,
For this lonely road has served me dinner.
