Risen Flags

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

Time Counts

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 […]

Quote #6

What was sleepWhen talking to you was so much exciting?What was sleepWhen I was going to see you in my dreams anyway?

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Couple’s goal

Guessed desires;I wearyFrom the bottom to the up most,I run a queryHand in hand we take a strollOne by one we passed the starsUp in front we run miles aheadOur soles hurtBut that stops us notHorizons of perspectiveKeeps moving backA long walk, A long talk..A long conversation..Refracting our minds fromOur hurting feetAnd we can walkMore […]
