AT THE LAST MOMENT (a poem for the moment) by Su’eddie Vershima Agema


at the last moment
(we would find the warmth)



tormenting tides would wane
the storms shall cease
the floods finally fade
our rainbow would spread…
however sleep fared
life’s dream would kiss you

as the rays bless more
wake to stimulating smiles
come to the hearth then
the ghost would have found fires
and the spirit would’ve warmed our homes
no holes then dear, we would have a long lasting laugh. amen.


(From Home Equals Holes: Tale of an Exile – Joint Winner Association of Nigerian Authors Poetry Prize 2014)

 No matter where you are, hang on to hope, smile. In our deepest despair, the bleakest night, there come’s a light to repair it all and make it worth the wait. Have faith. Merry Christmas guys- and lovely ladies. SVA

      Howdy? Thanks for dropping by, and yup, we hope you come more often. You can be sure that I am up to hitting your blog soon 🙂 Are you fine? Merry Yuletide!


    1. Thank you, Alex… The beauty of a good read is not just in the hoarding but in the sharing, I guess. The ANA Prizes are usually based not on single poems or stories, but on a whole collection. In this case, it was a collection, ‘Home equals holes: Tale of an exile’ (published by SEVHAGE, 2014) that won the prize.
      I wrote a bit about it on the following link
      Thank you for taking time to drop by, and for the feedback. Have a great new year!

    Coincidentally, I was on your blog reading. I had to smile at the Versatility Nomination. It was an interesting piece… Hmmm, those were some nice 7 things about you! Hmmm…. And you are only 4 months? Say what? Are you kidding me? 4 months? Chai! Oh well…


    1. Which heartfelt prayer…? Maybe you should share? 🙂 This is the last poem in my collection, Home Equals Holes: Tale of an Exile. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves, it will be well, yeah?
