Abuse written 22nd January, 2011 by Jokpeme Joseph Omode
Within a twinkling of an eye,
Favour and grace lifted me
Beyond my imagination and equals.
I am now on the mountain top;
Far above my equals.
Everyone is now looking up to me as their standard;
Everyone now runs to me for help and favour.
I am now a role model
And everyone now wishes to be like me.
But suddenly I deviated and backslided;
I was once doing an act of good,
I was once honoured and praised among my mates,
But I am now nothing.
I am like a filthy rag;
Like a leper who has been rejected and abandoned.
Oh! I am now helpless and ashamed of myself;
Why did I abuse?
I cried out!
Why has pride done this to me?
Why I’m I not cautious of everything?
Why did I abuse my rights and privileges?
Oh why did I do it?
Oh why did I abuse my powers?
Oh God! Help me to stand up once again
Now that I have realize my wrongs
And I will bless your name at all times.
