I live my life like it’s mine.

I make choices trying to satisfy

My vision of how to fly

In the face of adversity,

How to cry

When I can no longer

Hold it in.

Circumstances beckon,

Derailing planned paths.

I reckon

I can only

Leave things to

God’s plan.

I would love to be lured away


To a cosy cottage

Just for one sweet day,

With nothing to do

But read books

And say

‘I wish life could always be

This way’.

Ivie M. Eke 2021.
