ABOUT 50. ABOUT HOPE.
Remember how you always wanted to do it all?
I hope you tried, i hope you achieved.
I hope your many little feats accumulated to that big dream.
I hope you did small things and big things.
I hope you did everything.
Oh Temi, I hope you did not settle.
I hope you spoke out on behalf of the voiceless and for the rights of the vulnerable
I hope you educated the young and the old in every way you knew how
I hope you were never relentless in impacting lives around you.
Injustice. Corruption. Patriarchy. I hope you were not quiet.
I hope that fire never burned out
Oh Temi, I hope you didn’t let them silence you.
I hope in everything you did, you were never ashamed of the gospel,
honoring God at every step.
I hope you were the light of the world
I hope you kept doing, loving, dreaming, hoping
Oh Temi, I hope HOPE helped you prevail.
