EVERYTHING IS GREY

GREY

I woke up
And was greeted
By your absence,
Everything turned grey
As life is empty
And depressing without you,
I miss you.

ABOVE FEAR

ABOVE FEAR.jpg

I am daring
and courageous,
a maverick
cavalier
when I love,
like riding a bike
on a rocky terrain
with no pads,
My heart,
a reflection
of the stabs,
bruises and scars,
even then,
this passion
and obsession
when I love
knows no bound,
because fear is
scared of me.

A WOMAN IS A WOMAN

WOMAN

No one was created weak,
we all have our strength,
what makes a woman think
she is weak?
what makes her
obsessed with
equality with
a man?
whether as wife
professor
pilot
doctor
president
lecturer
author
nobel laureate,
a woman is a woman,
can’t be replaced
by any other on earth,
except another woman,
making a woman indispensable,
culture, religion and opinion
do not diminish a woman,
the supreme architect never
intended her to be
the same as her mate,
she was created subtle,
beautiful,
and sometimes fragile,
even the book of all books,
calls her weaker vessel,
but in this weakness,
fragile nature,
subtle skill,
lies her intelligence
and strength.

WOES OF A DEAR COUNTRY

Enormously blessed,
yet poverty,
Corruption,
Nepotism,
Disloyalty,
have developed roots
and abound in my country,
how can we say
arise, o compatriots
when this fire is raging,
how can our forbearers
rest in their graves
when their legacy
is being devoured,
how can we serve
with our heart and might
when we are
part of the fire,
the day our
anthem and pledge
become part of our souls,
faithfulness, loyalty, honesty
engraved in our hearts,
Unity, peace, freedom
become our common language,
heroes and forbearers
stop appearing in our dreams,
our honour and glory held high,
We will become Nigerians,
we will become a Nation.

CONFLICTING MAN

spirit-and-body.jpg

Man is in perpetual conflict,
The flesh versus the inner man,
Never satisfied,
Always seeking,
The flesh wants more,
The inner self wants contentment,
This weakness, the seed of free will
and spiritual nature planted in man.
Perhaps, deliberately created to make
man subject to a supreme being.
