EUREKA, I’VE FOUND IT


POET: TONYE WILLIAM

Eureka, I’ve found it,

I screamed out from my seat,

The right words to get me what I seek,

I discover has been lodged all along in my cheek,

 

Years spent were not wasted,

For unto this discovery a time had been slated,

With a song of joy, a victory dance,

I string these words unto the shaft of my verbal lance,

 

It goes thus: forgive me father,

I accept you, in sin will I go no further,

With tears of joy, and a feeling of true salvation,

I see a change in my situation,

 

An idyllic existence for me lies ahead,

As his words of grace I store in my head,

I have no fear when I sleep or eat,

For eureka, I’ve found it.
