O CHILD! MAY 27TH by Caleb Agboola Fabiyi

Read Time:39 Second

O child, our hope and our joy,
Don’t play with your life like toy,
Whether you’re a girl or a boy,
Allow no one, your future, to destroy!

O child, please, use your brain well,
Your great destiny no one can tell,
Announce your decision with a bell,‎
Ring it: I’ll allow no one, my future, to  sell! ‎

O child, always remember God,
Let Him always ok your actions with a nod,
Don’t allow God to use on your back, a rod,‎
Daily bind yourself to heaven with prayer cord.

O child, be obedient, now and always,
In all the months, including Decembers and Mays,
So shall you live long on earth and see many days,
And upon your  paths in life shall shine, light rays.

  1. moondustwriter – Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

    Caleb I love this poem. I am just finalizing a book of poetry that will be published this summer. All proceeds to benefit orphans of Ebola. https://fillthecracks.wordpress.com/submissions/
    Would love for you to consider submitting this poem. I realize if this book does well we can do more books for the children who have lost so much.
