Destination

By John Gbenga 

Where do I belong

Here or there?

The swift-moving world of

endless possibilities

where my weathered skills

found a niche, recoiled

and recast into a finesse

basking with fulfilling flames

Or the home I left behind

that I always miss dearly,

priding itself as the womb

that gave birth to the skills;

then dumped them into a population that

never valued the usefulness
