WGHA 2018 CHILDREN’S DAY POEM by Ayo Ayoola-Amale




LET IT BE EVERY CHILD

We build tomorrow on fire.
We build the ancestor to humanity,
they yelled our names, the mind,
in the heart of the deepening moonlight wind
with a steady hand we take hold of paradise.
We walk with society’s souls like maddened fresh air
in blazing nobility echoing centuries.
We build tomorrow in the world we found
for every child.
