An original by Oluwatobilola J. Agboola
Can we mend broken pieces of trust
trampled beneath the feet of deceit?
Can we retrieve pure spilled milk
soaked into the crust of the earth?
Can we re-build the gate of sexuality
broken down by that reckless thrust?
Can we re-mould the face of a mother
whose cheeks still remember her loss?
Can we just accept the friendship
extended by a friendly lady?
Can we just fill the cup to our need
and avoid a messy overflow instead?
Can we go back to a time
we took for granted?
Should we create a new past or
change the future with the present?
