This Place

This place is tempting
Steadily drawing me in
And asking me to stay back
In the warm embrace of complacence

This place is not like Lagos
That’s steadily draining me out
With the cost of everything taking me aback.
The restlessness of a city that takes as it gives

Perhaps I should stay
I only need to sacrifice the lofty dreams and imperial urges,
Aha! that would be the price of an Enugu life
For a man like me who never stops dreaming
