POEM: It’s my New Year


It’s a new dawn

It’s my new dawn

As the bleary breeze

From the rustling rain

At dawn

Drizzles into my grateful heart

In the green Abuja city

It’s my New Year!



Yes, it’s my New Year

On this day

I inhaled the air of the earth

On this day

Like the eagle

My soul turns a new leaf

My body glows in innocence



With achy feet

Tearful eyes

Sinking hope

Fearful heart

I’ve travelled the days, the years

On the lonely earth

Oh Lord

With a grateful voice I’ve come

Through the decades

Oh, Friday, thou son of August

Grandson of ages,

To say: Thank you, Lord


I thank you, Lord

Thou that saveth me from the mouth of lions

I thank you

Thou that leadeth me through the dark desert

I thank you

Thou that protected me from the fingers of death

I thank you

Thou that keepethme from cascading into hell

I thank you

Thou filleth my mouth with good things

I thank you, Lord.



It’s a new dawn

It’s my new dawn

It’s my new day

It’s my new year

I have a new life

I’m alive

In the land of the living

Thank you, Lord

It’s my new year!

It’s my birthday.
