Broken crayons still colour

I have been kept in the dark all day long
Wearied, depressed and lying hopelessly
In the chamber of guilt and pain of the past
Today filled with the aroma of guilt and fear
How can I move on with the stigma?
When will I laugh at my past and be bold
To tell the story to whoever cares?
I could not help my thought resonating

Meet my friend (Happiness )
She was diagnosed of brain tumor
All hope was gone and unreal
Thinking the end was so near
She survived the unexpected
What an unbelievable miracle!
Happiness is back and healthy

I remembered (Adamu)a street brother
Who was accused of rape by a little girl
Jailed and tortured for his falsified act
After several Investigations, the truth unveiled
She was threatened by some young adults
To cook up lies against (Adamu)
For two thousand Naria as a reward
What a wild and a wicked world?
Nevertheless, (Adamu) is now a rich
Business Analyst

Here is (Sukura) , a double Orphan
Who depends on the street for food
Left alone to face her fate and pain
Striving with tears to smile all day
Today, she is a medical doctor
A distinctive voice for the voiceless

(Ejike) my cousin, who was a drug addict
His early days was spent in the prison
We all could not believe the drastic change
So better and impactful to publish his story
Yesterday a drug addict and prisoner
Today a responsible father

What of (Boladale) my childhood friend
Who had aborted fifteen times
Her disgusting past was so visible
Rocking and slaying her world to her taste
But her broken pieces found true love
Now, she is married blessed with five kids

You need to see (oga Nuru) the vulcanizer
He was rubbed with lies and jealousy
By his selfish boss because of his uniqueness
No alternative than to run for his life
Today is a boss of his own

Here is (Chinyere) , my good friend
She was impregnated by(Odinaka)
Who was a son of a painter
The pain and disgrace seems suicidal
She thought of discarding her baby but
Was encouraged by Madame (Juliana)
Never to let today’s shame rob her
Cleaving to her promising future
She can boldly tell her story to everyone
Once upon a time castigated and rejected
Today, she is a fabulous winner

Stories that stires my fate and sight
Surrounds my table with hope and love
The fear of seeing the scar of my past flaws
Keeps me in the silence isle of my heart
Not everybody can make an history but
Everyone enjoys reminiscing about it

After the rainfall comes the sunshine
Never allow your today’s mess rob you
Your broken pencil can still write
Your broken crayon can still color
The broken pieces of your life still
Have a precious worth and value
Inspite of everything you have been through
You still have a purpose and value

God has a purpose for you
He loves and adores you so much
That he refuses to let you go
Leaves you broken and battered
Why don’t clean up yourself off
Your mess and stand to see
The beautiful future ahead
Stand with courage to say

From mess to God’s masterpiece
From disgrace to abundant grace
From mockery to multiplication
From shame to honor
From hatred to love
From despair to happiness

Don’t capitalize on your wrongs
Every disappointment has a message
Broken crayon still color
