THE AFTERMATH

Written Balogun, J. A.

We arrived dreamy
Everyday the clock ticking
Each day with something new
But, the dream remained
For we are the “aspirants”.

We lived each day thinking it was far,
Most thought “let me just rest and do it later”
Some forgot the rule, “eat or get eaten”
And it kept piling.

Alas! The day is upon us
Sweat, tears and blood we dropped
Five days we toiled
Sadly some faltered

We made it! We made it!!
The successful ones jubilantly exclaimed
Forgetting our brethren who faltered

To them we say,
The battle is for them to slay
For t’is not the end
T’is the beginning.
