I know you are expecting a miracle
In what form are you expecting your miracle
I been alive today is a miracle
You been alive is a miracle
Whether in crisis or not, it is not gonna be forever

My miracle could be in any form
It doesn't have to be in a particular form
SS to AA, SC to AC, SS to AS etc.
That's sterotype
All are letters

And we could hoping and praying...
The letter changes
From one crusade to another
From one mountain to another
Some fraudster will still deceive us
Because they know we are desperate for our miracle

Some call us 'ogbaje', 'abiku' etc
But they are ignorant
Our miracles will come

It could happen
But we don't have to look forward to it
God is a miracle worker
The miracle comes in His own way and time, not ours

Let's appreciate the 'little' miracles in our life
You not been in a mortuary
You only visit the hospital
You not having crisis for a while
All are miracles

You having mild mild crisis
You not having a severe crisis in 'six' month
When crisis comes, you coming out of it alive
All are miracles

Everyone has a challenge
You manage yours, I manage mine
My miracle doesn't have to come big
I appreciate the 'little' miracles in my life

Although no little miracle
Every miracle is big It depends on how we look at it
I appreciate my creator for my life
What of you?

Dedicated to all sickle cell patients...

I think this might help....Sickle Cell Foundation of Nigeria is a cool place.
They've got labs and offer clinical services there too. You can run tests, treat leg ulcer, and get genetic advice from them.
