Omotayo Fatunbi

Biography: I am just a lover of nature, art, a scavenger roaming the earth in search of good painting, sculpture, music, movie, poetry; and I try as much as possible to add mine for others like me to pick up. Life is too short to achieve all my big heart wishes to, but I just want to make my little contribution before death claims me.

Ode to a Step Son

This relationship we have to consolidate

For you’ve done marvelously well from beginning till date

Remember, on your first day, what I told you

“Be good to people so they’ll be good to you”

It’s lucid you’ve grown feather

But keep it low

Till the storm is o’er

And the tide is low

When the fog disappears

You may roll your wheel

Travel to wherever you will

Or spread your wings and gallantly you fly

Far away to the creatures that live in the sky

Like the moon, you shine when the sun has gone to sleep

And everyone wishes you were but a diamond they could keep

Then will I say it’s because you heed the words of the wise

And did not hardening your neck

And refer to them as lies

Now I am glad that to my expectations you’ve lived up

And that which your humble heart had learnt you would keep.
