Guest of life

Image by Oresegun Olumide

DISCLAIMER! This is NOT a human being

This is an art work, a painting by a Nigerian,Oresegun Olumide.

Finger you ring
Still slaps your face
The gifts given
Is stoned at you

Breath is a voice
Sweet words recited
Or sang can still
Explode like bombs.

I knew the world
Was cruel, I spent
More time in womb

That no one can
Run from events
Wired and designed
To be, in life

Dreams, yes are real
But do not spend
More time sleeping
Lazy about

As cruel as it
May be; I still
Stay up that late

Myself, and I
For the future
As guest of life.

  1. Yes we should stop sleeping and dreaming even If dreams come true. It’s sometimes…. May also call it luck

    I love this part. We need to be awake and ready for whatever comes our way. We can do that only by working on ourselves. Every day, little by little
