Guest Author

Today I have a special treat for my readers. Guest poet Kolade Olanrewaju Freedom has agreed to share an excerpt from his wonderful new poetry book, The Light Bearer.

Kolade Olanrewaju Freedom lives in Lagos, Nigeria. His poetry collection, The Light Bearer, combines beautiful and eloquent poems to inspire and motivate readers. The Light Bearer is available to buy on kindle and paperback from amazon now.

That Lonely Path (an excerpt from The Light Bearer)

On a lonely path
None to walk path with
Path narrow and rough
Thorns on ground pierce feet
Cries as audible as a vuvuzela
But none would hear
No one on path
Everywhere as silent as a graveyard.

I tread on a lonely path
Could have digressed
But destiny keeps pushing me on
Path horrible and frightening
But courage within keeps kicking
I am no football to be played
But I roll along path
Defiling and defying the odds.

On that lonely path
Where Spectators mock as you tread
Where you are shrouded by doubts
But wouldn't succumb nor fidget.

Crown at end of path glittering
Desiring to be worn by the pathfinder
Walking on a lonely but new path
Better than treading on the used path
Where mediocrity and complacency reside.

On a lonely path
On a unique mission
On a neglected path
A golden throne awaits.
