I have witten this poem in a gifted and talented workshop hosted by a famous author/storyteller Olusola Oyeleye. I was inspired by some of the poems that she wrote and the curret situation of the homeless youths present in the U.K

Destiny, Its just my story

A story of constant fear

of whatever comes near,

a life of remorsefull actions

and unfortunate times

that had driven me to such grimes

an unimaginable nightmare

of unsympathetic welfar


I have a regretfull feeling

one that I find very appealing,

But I have come too far

Too far to go back

because of confidence that I lack,

It is love and care that I seek

all the people that you loved flashed by a peek

thats why I believe chasing success leads to regret.

after all the bad days, I cannot go back

'coz Ive come too far

too far to go back.
