Poem: I Am a Child

Adesewa Oyinkansola July 07, 2014

African child

To you I am a child
A child of course I am  
Little though to you I am,  
I have my dreams and desires.

 Just like that grain of seed  
Is watered and groomed,  
Growing up to be a big tree  
So also I,
That little child  
Need to be nurtured,  
Loved and Cherished

I beg of you, my elders and nation  
Never to deny me of my rights  
Never to lead me astray  
So I can grow to be  
Useful to myself and to you  
Useful to my great nation…  
And the world
