Yesterday’s baby….Tomorrow’s Leading Man.

It’s the 4th of March

Yesterday’s boy

Is ten years today

Oh, how time flies.


I remember when I found out

That I was pregnant

I hated myself

I blamed God.


Why would he allow this?

We ‘re just barely getting by

And now another child

Lord, you must be messing with my mind.


No! I am not ready,

Can’t bear the pain all over again

I’ll  rather stay with one

But He had better plans.


Unlike the previous pregnancy

He was mild a little

I told myself, “This will be stress -free

So I walked into the Hospital.


Excuse me, I’m ready

Can we get this over with

With a little anaesthetic

I watched as the doctor

Cut me again from below.


Behold my little boy

looking so radiant and bright.

The Mini-me they say,

But with a mind of his own.


With great determination and enthusiasm watching his parents perform on stage. 2014@ Bogobiri.



We named him Wonderful

That’s what he’s been

My pride and joy

Wonderfully and fearfully made.


My Personal P.A

Mr drummer extraordinaire

Yesterday’s baby

Tomorrow’s valiant Man.

Happy 10th birthday to my great son Wonderful Adekolajo Oluwasetire Adeyemi.
