‘2015’

By Oliyide Eniola



2015
Like a new baby, you were born,
About 52 weeks ago, ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR!’ was the common phrase.
Like a new baby, you were born,
And the joy of seeing you put a smile on every face. 
Like a new baby, you were born,
Tears rolled down several cheeks for seeing you was a privilege as you introduced us to a new phase.
As every mother should, to her new born child, life filled you with high hopes and all it took to keep us all the way. 
As every mother should, life nourished you and the speed of your growth was so fast that it swept a lot off life’s highway.
In a twinkle of an eye, like seconds turning minutes, minutes turned to hours, hours to days, days to weeks, weeks to months, you grew fierce, dreadful and scary.
As you grew, you also grew in kindness, generosity and gave hope of new beginning and better tomorrows, sometimes though it was all so blurry.

 Yea, we crossed o’er, 
I feel like a survivor.
Some were pulled down 6feet by your ‘pit’,
Doesn’t mean the rest of us are that fit.
Oceans of tears rolled down our eyes,
When we saw loved ones buried right before our eyes.

…………………
Life’s a bet, win some, and lose some.
We made friends, we lost friends too. Strangers became lovers, lovers became strangers, friends became best friends, best friends became family, a bond so strong…

And as the sun sets on this last day of your existence, all I can say is 2015, and you did me right and wrong…
