My Turn       Written May 19th 2011 by Jokpeme Joseph Omode
I have been waiting for a long time,
Waiting for my turn on the queue.
I have been waiting for someone to call my name.
I have been hearing the names of others
And others have been hearing their names.
I have been waiting patiently for my turn;
I have been expecting,
But nothing seems to happen.
It seems hopeless!
I am now anxious and worried.
It seems as if my turn will never come;
I almost let go,
But suddenly I heard a voice.
I stopped, I looked, and listened
As the mellifluous voice kept calling my name.
I went expecting,
And suddenly, I was surprised with a crown.
