I'll be Alright
Emaikwu Godwin is a 21 year old poet from Nigeria. He started writing when he was 17 after a friend suggested it and he has not looked back since then. He says, 'I want my poetry to put smiles on millions of faces, inspire people all over the world, be a light for those in darkness, hope for those in despair and a motivation for those about to give up.'
I will be alright
I have lost the will to fight
And I can no longer breathe
I am overwhelmed by miseries
Tell me, will you catch me if I fall?
I can no longer hold on to the light
Darkness is now the only friend I greet
Happiness and joy are only but mysteries
Tell me, why can’t I break through this wall?
I know nothing but sheer agonizing pain
And all my demons are now out to pry
I have been calling out for ages
Tell me, do you hear my cry?
I try but sorrow is my only gain
It doesn't matter how hard I try
The tempest around me always rages
Yet my stream of hope never runs dry
I won't give in till all my fears are slain
They may be the shark and I the fry
Still, I'll strive till we're on different pages
And when the night comes, I'll no longer cry
For I will be alright
