How I shine

I am like a breeze dispersed seed
Going wherever He takes me to
The I rotten, and germinate
Becoming a tree, rich and strong
All my the pains I have been through
Are written on my leaves and stems.

I am like a breeze dispersed seed
And I have felt the touch of God
Comforting, but I can not explain
Neither can I describe, how it felt
Going through volcano, and back
Sprouting richly in the deserts.

I am like a breeze dispersed seed
Going through land of no return
In the times I thought I was gone
Out of the blues, came his fingers
Lifting me above the waters
Saving me from awful disaster.

Rare African Ray

Africa has seen
Horrifying moments
Destroy her fragile hearts
We still do…

And we still believe
That a dawn will bring forth
A ray to extinguish
This darkness.

Africans have been
Hoping for the longest
Dared, but it is the least
We can do…

And we still believe
That a ray can direct
All our paths and lead us
To greatness.

Grateful Rest

Nothing stays fresh and ever green
Even the grass, withers and falls
Until we all eventually fade
We all shall taste of that life brings

The good, the bad, the sour, the sweet
Today nascent, tomorrow grey
Yes, at some point, we crave for rest
Life is but, cradle to the grave.

Where troubled minds will fall asleep
Well, I do not know, about you
But, if I can speak when I ghost
I will tell death, thanks for the rest.

My Bloodlines

To my lovely children;
In your varying veins
The same blood flows deep down
From same ancestral gown

Daddy loves you so much
That he will always blush;
“I have been to lala land”
There are still lots to find.

In the air, build castles
Let wonders guide you through
Into imaginations
And cartoon’s illustrations.

Dance and play; in your cots
Throw blows; but not a lot
When you do, forgive too
The cord shared, is not two

Trust and always believe
Family never leaves…
Please honor your mother;
Do always remember

For you, she went through pains
After nine months you came
Giving her reasons to smile;
Hence, she goes extra mile

To protect and provide
You with a stress free life.
Do not get so annoyed
When we do spare no rod

While growing, when you err
Please gain an old man’s hair
Trust and always believe
Our love will never cease.

Sonnet: Revisiting Gifts

While I am overwhelmed by these gifts
Coming from past, sweet words and texts
During Christmas and my birthdays
Surprises that came with ribbons
Pockets filled with fat envelopes
And buckets of consumables
I am grateful for those moments.

All these stickers on souvenirs
Gotten from events in the past
Brings a flashback with some teardrops
Though I do not anticipate
Being here forever on earth
I revisit, for I can not forget
Sweet memories I find in gifts.

Today is mine

Today
Is all
I boldly
Call mine

Yesterday
Is ruthless
And careless
With time.

Tomorrow
Is brutal
Though hopeful
Most times.

Today
Is all
I boldly
Call mine.

Cradle cuddle

You make me look stupid
Losing my composure
I am privileged having
You, that I am sure…

Your magnanimity
Can not be measured
It makes the stars to
Lose their cynosure.

Hotter than the Sun
It is my pleasure
Holding a beautiful soul
Covered from exposure

By a spotless nascent skin
Fresh and soft in texture;
Nothing beats the feeling
Cuddling my own treasure.

To my descendant

To my descendants
Thousand years to come
How I really wish,
We see eye to eye.

I know genes lie not
When it comes to blood
Yes, we may differ
But we are still one…

The sun rise and set
Until we are gone
Wish I would be there
To put you through things

No one can control
Lifespan forever
I love you so much
That if I were time,

I would wait for you
Pausing the world
Till you catch up
With me, my love.

Fighter

Are you glad to see my back
So that only you can advance
Are you glad to see my fall
So that you alone can fly high…
Are you envious of my shine
Sorry to break it down to you
Amazing how hard I fall
Someone like me never give up.

Family

Where do I run to
All over the town
When the chips are down.

Where do I run to
After counting chicks
Before the eggs hatched.

Where do I run to
When my heart tear scales
And rips off my chest.

Where do I run to
Away from the frights
And all pains begot.

Where do I run to
To silent thunder
And end this trauma…

Where do I run to
When expectations
Have all been cut short

Where do I run to
Down a deadly road
Where all doors are closed.

Where do I run to
If not family
Singing; home sweet home.
