Long stretch of wooden seats slamming one after the other
noises and chatters of friends, of mates,
echoes of professors resounding from the speakers
scribbles on my notes and my phone on the other hand
texts from my friends for after-school plans
closing my eyes each night, knowing the sun will come up
and I am one step forward to being a graduate …
And then strike happened.
I was asked where was my favorite spot in LAUTECH
and I said it was the halls
I love them and I miss them all so much.
Right now, I walk these streets that surround this school,
the buildings and the halls
Emptiness has taken hold and echoes talk back to me in the halls
Is it a crime to pursue education?
Lord, I feel so sad,
I am tired of answering questions from outsiders about a problem I did not ask for;
about a situation I cannot control.
Ogbomoso was a home, LAUTECH was an escape
but now I am not so sure anymore.
You want to know what I want?
I want to believe my voice matters
I want this strike to end
#bringback my favorite place
Let the lost feeling fade away.
I know my hope is a start to a better future.
Eniola believes in this
what do you believe in?
