A night in Atlanta Georgia

Apologizes
Bold letter inks
When pink slips comes
In phases of life

Be calm, and think
Remember that
Most times when the
Yellow Sun hides

The Moon roll out;
To fight the dark
And if no moon
The dark will spread

Stick, for some time
And still fade out
When a door close
Another will open

Long as it may;
And forever…
It can’t stay
Under the sky

Why worry when
It one day ends;
For every curve,
There is an edge

Georgia a dream
Only in sleep
Not in pink slips
And all of this.

The poem was written the day I got a mail from Emory Lane, Graduate school.

I had applied for a PhD scholarship at Emory University, Atlanta Georgia. But didn’t get it.

So a night in Atlanta Georgia became a dream that didn’t come through.

Hence I wrote this self motivating poem to myself reminding me that as one door closes another opens… A week after though not a scholarship I got an admission letter from the university of Benin in Nigeria.
