Perhaps all you need for time, just time
Is to stand and choose to fight it out
Belief with a true heart brings forth peace.
Then you learn the love that conquers all.
When time is measured all that’ll last will be
The will to fight and stand for a cause
Your aim in life will be measured by
The number of souls that value you
Soar on wings of the Eagle’s span
Send pure laughter the way of men.
At the end of all what counts will be
If truly you found love for yourself indeed

2 thoughts on “‘A Love For All’ by Olumide Oluwasegun”
I found this poem as practical and idealistic as possible. I am impressed by how the writer has woven reality: love for oneself and others with the idealistic situation where laughter may not always be easy to come by.
Deep. Very deep.
I like the value this places on what one does with his/her time and how to make the best kind of impact.
Great job and well done!
