At Solitude | a poem by Ndifreke George

I wanna be me
known by a name so unique
with an aura of a kinda person
only myself can evoke

I wanna be spiritual
putting my God as first
Loving the man next door
like I do to my very self

I wanna be realistic
out to solve the puzzle of reality
and not have my big head
stuck in the cloud for nothing

I wanna be emotional
to give my shoulder to the crying ones
returning winks for winks
heating out every foggy feeling

I wanna die fulfilled
that unforgettable daddy
with so much to learn from
living on even after he’s gone
