Emancipation

Written by Timothy Oluwafemi Adedeji and Favour Oniya

Once broken
now freed
once caged
now emancipated
once chained
now a king.
At last
I escaped
from evil
so glad
in front accolades
beautifully laid.
Let this little
light shine up
on us all
loosened from
those chains
and darkened corner.
Let the light
incessantly be effulgent
because never again
would I be in pain
nor in cage be detained
yes ceaselessly I would fly.
