LAGOS LIFE

Sometimes Life is like a Lagos danfo
on Badagry Expressway,
You move backwards
while trying to drive forward.

Friend,
Don't stop when you're tired,
Stop when you're done.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
