Poem: Gather Up the Fragments …by Funmi Adebayo

To commemorate World Poetry Day 2021, I thought to drop you this poem I wrote sometime ago from my No Sanctuary for Cowards poetry collection. This one talks about the Power of Little. Please enjoy it, and do let me know your best line. Cheers!

he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained…John 6:12-13 (KJV)


The bit that remains
after all is lost
The little change you have left
when you’ve gone bankrupt

The five loaves and two fishes
that would hardly suffice…
The crumbs and pieces
that men despise…

The little you can still do
when it’s already too late
The few things that still work
after your BIG mistake…

The few sweet memories to hold
when things go sour
The few beats you can still rock
when the music fades…

Those few magic moments
amidst life’s struggles
Those few unexpected blessings
that make us giggle …

Those flickers of hope
in our long dark tunnels
