LIVE FOR HIM

©Adeolu Emmanuel Adesanya

Talk for him

For the boy who can’t find the words

Speak for him, let him use your voice

It is dire that he use your mouth to speak

Forget yourself and your own speech

You and I have lived plenty for ourselves.

Walk for him

For the boy with no legs

Carry him high and let him run far

For a day, or even more, let your limbs be his

Forget yourself and your life sojourn

You and I have lived plenty for ourselves.

Search for him

For the boy trapped in his own mind

Life is a riddle, he’s tangled in its web

He needs your counsel, guide his reasoning

Forget yourself and your own thoughts

You and I have lived plenty for ourselves.

Live for him

For the boy breathing with a gauge

He’s choking, his breath is laboured

For few minutes, let him use your heart to breathe

Forget yourself and your own life

You and I have lived plenty for ourselves.
