Life is a road,
walking or running, we move,
Or jumping like toads,
While Some gentle as doves.

Life is a bridge,
Guarded by post and rails,
Some flip at the apex,
Some move for the head,
And some just end at the foot.

Life is a flight,
We take off so we alight,
All in perspective of a narrow end,
An end…
Life is death personified.

Leading Lines

We now have an end,
Or what seems like it,
Why do we delay,
And not go for it?

The streets are made of perspectives,
lines that give meaning and direction,
Paths that grow lean at the end;
Always walk along its line.

Is it the shadow cast,
Or the design brutality?
Why do we dilly-dally,
Or not move along?

That leading line,
An enigma for our introspection
An iconic reminder for our retrograde minds,
Saying, move along! Move along!

Yet we stay and wait,
For what seems like eternity,
At fates crossroad,
Hoping for immortality.

DARK SERIES

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams, no mortal ever dared to dream before”
-Edgar Allan Poe

Night Shoot-7

Close your eyes for a second,
take a deep breath and remember,
light shines the brightest in the dark‘.

Let not your will be crippled,
by happenings of this life.

Let your light stay shining always
that it might shine some more when darkness comes.

For it will surely come to all of us.
an inevitable occurrence of life which is only tackled
by those that keep their light shining;
against all odds.

Jesus Saves.

POEM: The Irony

Apostle said,
pray and sweat,
in the name of the Father
do not fret”.

Alone with Apostle
we did pray,
and we did sweat,
but on a different stance.

The Apostle said, “I Am…
but really, Is He?

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven

CHOICES

REALIZATION TIME!
It is always your fault,
Good/bad…you had the time,
You chose your course,
The outcome is yours.

ACCEPTANCE TIME!
Mistakes were made
All prone to this slate
Make peace with yourself
Take charge of the bait


LIVE
RIGHT! in line with THE WORD.
…’cos never growing younger,
Never knowing yonder.
Live you last everyday,
For our last is never known.

A TRAP IN FUTURE…

What is wrong with us?
It has always been a long game,
yet we take it for granted.
Decisions are taken just for fame
yet we sit back muted.
Recycled heads on the throne,
too careless for ‘done’.
Dry lands; Sinking shallow boreholes,
and gradually tainting young dreams.
Only Eagle eyes see the trapped holes.

What is wrong with you?
Get up and take a stand,
there is never coincidence.
A chess game; act with fore-sight and confidence.
Does the father not become the child when old and the child the father!
Why then are you ruled by children?
Does the salt not season all the beans in a pot?
How then can you sit back unaffected?
You lie! you’re just short sighted.

What is wrong with me?
Is my ink to faint to be read
or is thy eyes to blind to read?
I try but I fail,
I try again but I still fail.
Are the words to blur
or are my thoughts to vague?
I spill yet again;
Only a glimpse favoured by your eye.
Whatever! Truth must be told.

BE AWARE… 

In the nick of time
Simi felt a lump on her breast.
Ignorant Simi, it is just a lump,
an incessant talker-alone.

Time past…pain felt,
unbearable she told Cori.
“Knows it all” Cori was struck,
you might be in hot okro soup.

Hurriedly paced, Doctor! Doctor!
Simi is in pain.
Checked up thoroughly
Oh! Simi you’ve got cancer.

Yayy! Hands on her head,
What is cancer?
frightened of the bold title
but unaware of the nitty-gritty

Ignorance is a fore cause to cancer
Be aware!
Knowledge enables avoidance.

FIRST THING…

Wake up today and say a prayer,
make sure you SAY A PRAYER.

Still breathing?
You are loved,
ADORE HIM.

We are all sinners,
filthy to the core,
SEEK FORGIVENESS.

your life is not a right,
It is a privilege,
SAY THANK YOU.

You have needs
Do not stay silent
ASK JESUS.

He who does not pray,
will definitely fall prey.
