JAMB 2016 by HAPPIE #WOWAfrica
HOW WAS IT MY FAULT?
I must have asked that a thousand times
But that’s not enough.
Cus all I get is excuses for answers
But excuse me, I’m talking about me.
I’m talking about days with no breaks
And nights with bright lights spent on pages and screens
Treating my eyes and brain with no mercy.
But I didn’t mind; cus all that was on my mind was
Making it to the next line.
I’ve been tested and proven excellent
But little did I know that excellence would be replaced with luck
Cus my anticipated dear success got hit
By a faulty failure traveling in high speed in a great Jam!
Now look what that attracted; a couple of…
There goes the brilliant lady who didn’t prove so brilliant lately
But despite what they may think
I’m more than what they think I’m worth
The fact that all things came to be by God the Creator’s spoken words
Makes it all clear – we live in a Word World.
And I have built my word kingdom where I’m the queen
So with my mouth speaking and my heart agreeing
There’s no need for grieving, cus I only say what I believe not what I fear
I believe the truth I know not the lie I hear
Cus even when I’m done with here, they’ll still hear it
Like Madiba screaming freedom in their ears they’ll hear it
See words can live forever.
So now that I’m queen my highness, let me give you my ideas
It is completely wrong to keep talking about the future but treating today like it’s not important
Using the prospective leaders of tomorrow as baits, plus
Never think the youths too young to make a change
At least I’m not, and words is what give us wings.
