Few moments ago I was an infant,
Sinking in the taste of milk from mothers breast.
With those warm taps on my back,
Putting my head to rest.
No longer a baby sinking in lullaby,
Now a boy forced to school.
Yet mama turned deaf ears to tears from my eyes
To myself I said, “I hate school”.
So quick it was
That these memories are like seconds ago
Once small, now tall
What do they call it?, oh yea GROWTH!!
From single I was, to couple I am.
Once chanting Dad, now been called daddy.
Once a man living in my lonely heart,
Now have it filled with family.
Wait!!!!? my Afro is gone,
My face now wrinkles
Guess old age has come.
How fast I got here, only time holds the clue.
Where’s my warm bed?
What’s this tight closet without pillows?
Guess it’s called a coffin instead.
How did I get here?, only God knows.
