Beyond Dreams by Favour Ugwumba.

Years ago,
when uncivilization slapped our brows.
And poverty kicked us right on the face.
Only dreams kept us.

Years ago,
when tears was our meal and hunger our beds
only dreams kept us.

Year ago,
when our laughter was painful as a scorpion sting.
And sadness a daily activity only dreams kept us.

Years ago,
when hardship was our career and sorrow our talent
only dreams kept us.

Years ago,
when killing was a hobby and murder a must occurrence
only dreams kept us.

Even with those sufferings.
Even with those pains.
Even with those misfortunes.
Even with those humiliations.
Even with those murders.

We still saw beyond dreams.
