Unreal Ambition by Thompson Emate

Poem

Beyond the wormhole,
My Fears allayed,
Am back to the past,
To make some changes,
To correct my wrong steps,
I have gone ahead
to turn back the hands of time,
To rewrite history,
And usher a new future,
My past will no longer
have a leash on me,
My past will no more
hunt the present,
I’ll soar on an eagle’s wings,
No more insipid steps,
I’ll skyrocket,
No more undulating speed,
An end has come,
To a chequered life,
The door is opened,
To a new era,
I am overwhelmed with joy,
Suddenly,
I’m awake,
No wormhole truly exist,
The present stares me at the face,
All are left to me,
To seize what I want.
