A good name they say is better than Gold
Buy yourself a good name and not Gold
You wonder and ask me why? A man with gold dies, It will never take long, For him to be forgotten. A man with a good name dies. His memories linger on.
Buy yourself a good name, And you have a golden name. Buy yourself a good name, Your name is priced above gold. Buy yourself a good name, You will be of a golden memory. Buy yourself a good name, And it will be said of you that you lived a golden life. Buy yourself a good name, For only a good name lingers on.
My name is Oyinkansola Adesewa (pictured). I am 11 years old. I love writing, drawing, painting, designing clothes, dancing, and modeling. I am presently a student of Yaba College Of Technology Secondary School, Yaba-Lagos. I started writing at the age of 6. My first poem book titled “Thoughts of a Child” was published when I was 8 years old through a writing contest. I participated and I did excellently. Presently, I still write and I have written more poems outside the ones in my book.
