THE FIGHT OF A DREAMER by IKENNA

  THE FIGHT OF A DREAMER 

 

Recently a professor said to me

“You”  can’t be it. No you can’t!”

Having shown him some of my work.

I couldn’t tell him,

“I dont wanna hear it.

I’d rather do it”

For he is elderly and revered.

But is an endeared professor’s remark costlier than the dream of a youth?

If I live his, who will live mine?

Again if I leave this, who will live it?

Oh He thinks highly of me!- a team player.

“No, I am not a team player,

I’m the head of the team!”

My heart reechoes.

“Thats arrogance. Thats pride”

YOU may say.

Thats the problem- “YOU”

And thats where it all ends- “YOU”

Whereas it should be Me saying.

And by the way, pride is good

Its only too much of it that hurts

And even at that,

At least I know where I belong.

Now decision is upon me

So…

I’ll turn down his offer

For I’d rather steer for a future of uncharted waters than settle for one that’s another man’s history.

I will have to disappoint him.

Cos I dont want to face God in Heaven and tell Him I lived another man’s dream all my life.

Nonetheless,

I may as well be headed for exile, u know?

Maybe I was a born a rebel.

(Just saying)

But seriously, it is easier to tame a tiger than to tame Me.
