Thread peacefullyFor upon my chestYou thread..
Whichindeed I really believe
Yet You never can tellWhen a bestfriendBecomes a Total stranger
It’s a shot of loveAndMy target is too prettyThat my finger tremblesToPull the trigger ©2020 Voice of the pen
Our prideEmphatically lies in our strideIt ain’t a lieWhen we say we gonna soar highAnd even though strangled;Keenly we have toiled and struggledWith our flags risenSurely our feat ain’t hidden
We start as fools…And through experience;We become wise You remember when you spent an hour bathing only your stomach?Well, you now know how to shampoo your hair You remember when you put your right foot into the left shoe and vice versa?Well, now you can tie your shoelace I remember when I couldn’t recite the […]
Like the winds The smile comes And quickly fades away But the cause of it stays And I’m more than ready To show That damn smile If it calls for it A million time
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
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
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 […]
Your views needed.
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 […]
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 […]

Too naive..’three ignorant’It was a bullet from aGun I invented.KeptUnder my own jacket..When my eyes closes..,or not .Its a rougher..bitter…Learnt lesson..
You’re not the best But I swear you better than the rest On my schedule, kissing you is next You can try putting me to a test. I’m not gonna fail In my life you’re head not tail In your absence, the inner me looks pale My love for you got no limit of scale. […]
Those few moments feels like magic trying to understand it makes it horrific Deep inside feels warm, Even though the heart feels like a condensed ice. Sleepless nights: Can’t turn over my eyes My heart spins like dice Moving to and fro like fire flies I could only pray and hope this dream never dies […]

Captured via 3D CCTV camera; A 16 yr old boy stealing. Reason?.. That he was starving But that ain’t great excuse. And so had a fair share of mob justice. The court, not not do dissimilar, At his face, slapped him a sentence.. A sentence he couldn’t even read. Not so long.., When the lights […]
A minute without you is like hell How I survive that dilemma; I can’t tell If I really knew; like I would yell! A minute without you is a hard one to bear Its like a torn hat I do not want to wear Its a horrifying stigma that I do fear A minute without […]
