By Mojisola Josephine Kuwadinu:
Perceived thoughts and obvious sights are tempting snares,
Withholding humans far from their expected plans.
Words heard from the mouth of rumor mongers,
Are barricades to that which our hearts hold dear.
The moment ears become deaf towards fear-instilling words,
And eyes become blind towards fearful sights,
And courage is built up to face our fears,
We will realize how wrong we were,
To believe the root of our fears,
Because what trepidation made us stay up at night,
Were figments of our imaginations.
What we thought existed,
Never existed after all.
