Another March 31 by Onwuneme Yahwedalu Miracle
Another March 31
In yet another year
Is it something to be hopeful for
Or a day to ponder upon?
Should I celebrate today?
But what is there to to celebrate
Should I treat it like any other day?
But it surely ain’t just any other day
Had I been Job
I would have cursed this day.
For 22 years have I thrived
Maybe I should thrive for another 22.
But even I should thrive for another 22
Will there be a difference?
Or would the past 22 repeat itself
Over and over
Again and again.
Well, there’s naught for today
But to wish myself
In another March 31.
Prequel to Another March 31
