“Its so sad that sometimes you hurt so bad
Yet the world keeps on going;
Its frustrating when you’ve cried all your tears
Yet the world is celebrating;
But what can they do?
They don’t know you’ve lost someone so dear
They don’t know they’ve lost a valuable gem –
A rare and precious stone.
Yet you know and you hurt for you and the world
Because one’s potential was killed just as soon as it was born.”
This little poem is dedicated to the memory of Ayoola Adekunle, Ayodele Bankole, Gift Akogwu and all the young people over the world who have lost their lives.
May God continually be with your families … and may your souls rest in peace!
