Soldier- Bunmi Akindeko

Soldier CoverI heard you ask for strength

Once or twice last night

when sleep fell upon roofs

At the nigh of night

When minds went far from dawn of day


I heard you sniff in the darkness

Once or twice last night

When the mask of smiles could hold no longer

And the tears broke your rules on restriction


I heard you collapse against sound proof walls

In the midst of your muffled cries

And then I heard myself say

To every weakness – a strength abound

And   To every strength – a weakness abide

Be true to yourself soldier

Accept who you are.
