Faultless

The Ocean, though too vast;Apologies not for its depth.Neither does the mountainSeek forgiveness for the space it takes.So, shall you not be held accountableFor the beauty you possess. Even when none is listening;The birds chirp with joy.Indifferently, the butterfly dancesEven in a state of perplexity.And so, does your smiles appear pricelessEven if it’s a single […]

quote #5

We don’t throw away our little water just because we heard it will be rainingperhaps the giver of rain might have a change of mind at the eleventh hour.Better still, no one kills their first born just because they have in their womb a second. ©2021 VOICE_OF_THE_PEN

love-Phobia

Once I was in love;I was captivated.I liked the feelingHence treasured it in my left lung.Like a dogWailing its tail around the master;I believed the tale of dripping honeyAnd stuck out my tongue.Perhaps; I could lick every bit of it.Not so long;When I realized it was no honey;But falling sharp blades.Made of shining steelThat took […]

quote #4

Once we thirst for honey, then should we not be ready to battle out with the bees who make them?For no one picks fishes at the ocean’s shore…Perhaps if we want to jump higher,then must we squat more;Achievements come with great sacrifices… ©2020 VOICE_OF_THE_PEN

Quote #3

The good we tend to do;The evil we tend to hide;like pregnancy: will in the end show uplike when a fish dies in a pond;what we do, whether hidden or not,Eventually, will show up. ©2020 VOICE_OF_THE_PEN

CRESCENDO

Just who are you?That I can’t take my eyes off you.My heart races at a dangerous pace,I can’t seem to understand in any spaceYour voice triggers my emotions;Making my nerves  cause commotions.I guess you’re a crescendo;Sent above from the supremo..Come take me along,And I’ll sing you a lovely song.Come take my hand,Like kids, let play […]

Unfair

And when our feet hurts because we didn’t wear proper soles, they didn’t even careBut instead beat the hell of our buttto bruise because we were three seconds lateP.k

THE GOOD OLD DAYS

Swept away are the memories of the good old days.In the cold night by the fireside sitting around in circlesTo have an earful of Nana’s talesAs she spat words of the oracles The heavens blessed and washed us with heavy rainsAs we jumped in mud and played in itTo bless our childhood and shower away […]

It is quite senseless to save a fish from drowningAs learning is accompanied with change;Even after all these education and there is nochange in us;that becomes a waste and useless. ©2020 voice_of_the_pen

LET IT SHINE

Something we’ve got inside,That seeks not to hide.That which is buried within us deep inside.In it we’ve got to confide.Trust in that; let it be our pride.Like the smile of the newly wedded bride. This that is buried within is who we areLiving within; thus, how we’ve come by farThis that keeps us, boiling;Perhaps, our […]

I Will Tell God

IA clot of blood I was in a manhood I never knew.For his pleasure’s sake; travelled from Walawaleto Kokompe; there a woman he knew.Such in a hurry that they slipped the condom.In a flashy moment, I had my freedom.A lot of us though, but selection was random.The radar on my mark and I aren’t a […]

THE MID NIGHTS

The stars bear witness.The 12 am knows best.My blanket is my accomplice.But my heart understands more. In those silent lonely nights,Glued to my phoneWith my ear buds;Only my heart beat understands more. With her on the frequency,The duration ticking from 1sec to 1 hour;Her voice flustered me.Yet, only my heart understands more. We talked, smiled, […]

It’s All Black

I enveloped the world as my own.Had it dipped in my heart deep within,Like a seed to be sown.It budded nicely; labeled it my own.So naive, like a child play with fire;I let my light shine the all I loved.It was like living in an empire.Yet these that I loved;Saw no much in me relevance.A […]

Wonderful Creator

Come to think of it:How a whole universeCame out of nothing,Just the command of a supremo. Come to think of it:How a caterpillar develop wingsTo become butterfly;How halos occurs from crystals of iceHigh above;How a desert [Sahara] could have an eye;How a whirlpoolOccurs in the ocean. Come to think of it:How,.. Despite all the trash […]
