This year’s fear

This year bore the low and high
Tearing down flames in the sky.
But I swam like sharks through tides
Beneath the oceans, no fears to hide.

Though trespassing, I had churns
Thrusting up, to face the fears
But I made whirlwinds to turn
By telling myself never to burn.

We will be great

Wipe the stake clean repeatedly
When we lodge in a failed eventful inn,
Daydreaming of times we shall dine
Drinking rich wines, counting numerous dimes….

But as at now, our heads we bow
Bridging cables, standing far from swindles
For our hustle, we burst bubbles
Faces mop and mow, as all eyes gaze like owls.

Anxious to know when pains shall craft
A gain so great, to make us prominent
Living in here, please have no fear
Let’s endure scoff and jeer, till it cheers.

Racing in existence

On your marks, set…
….You are just cells
Only a sperm
On rehearsals
Running on heels
To make the list
Of many faces.

Life is a race,
Your parents are
To call the shots…
Distance we run
Varies in tracks
Oh.. destiny.

Put on a fight
To be the best
End matters most
More than the start;
The finish line
May sometimes come
With its regrets..

When the sweet race
Is but half length,
Chunky and short
Or so tragic.
That is the point
We know as death.

And every day
I often pray
And say; “His grace”
For finish line
To have a tune
So I can reach,
Not anytime soon.

Dear Child; work and pray

Dews can be the sweats
Dropping from the efforts
Put into a plan
Or it could be God’s plan

When the leaves are all
About to dry, and fall
There comes a tiny fog
Keeping it wet, for long….

Trees that hide in shades
Are those that gets short changed.
Dear child, look outside
For results search and find.

I know you are good
At the things that you do;
But, pray that the dews
Will always fall on you.

Tone: Jealous frowns

Keeping tabs with the time
Creating room for her crown
Proposing in the town
We are to walk the aisle…

Jealous must be of frowns
To notice how she smiled
When we were passing time
Staying with sweet desires.

Tone: Her Joy in Anticipation

White dress of love in fire
As a result of desires
Creating bonds eternal
There she smiles forever.

It is true what they say
That the most happy day
For a lady is the day
She is dressed in the gown

Monkey in cage

I placed courage in open cage
In search for gains but it brought pains
That is fatal and so brutal.

I swung on trees when coasts were free
I swung all edges to break this cage
The sweats I put, no longer counts.

I swung to undo but was fooled
I swung, I climbed, with all my limbs
The hope was large but a mirage.

I am locked up so please shut up
Inspirations, will only bring pains
That is fatal and so brutal.

Seems my both feet are in love
With muddy sands of bleeding skies
For my dreams; all I have given
But I keep failing on same road
Dangote, Mark, Bill Gates and co
Had all past through, to make their golds.

Fortune favors only the bold
These are exact words I was told
Fear I pull back, courage I drew
There is light at the tunnel end
Have been busy looking for mine
But seems to a mere song and dance.

I gaze at skies, each time I cry
Wearing boldness while I retry….
For, after all; it is said that
In the network of a big dream
Road to failure has same access
And potholes as road to success.

Falling for an evil twin

You were more like my morning dew
In the thick dark, I searched for you
Till I stumbled upon your scent
In whose fragrance, I off my shirt
Soft skin texture, hot body frame
Welcoming better; when I came.

Never knew of an evil twin
You framed me, was I meant to win?
When she called me sweeter than tea
And iced my cake better and free
Who rejects a good healthy meal
For starvation climbing a hill.

Now I long for her evil ways
“You disappoint me”, you may say
Whereas you gifted my desire
A large volume of fuel and fire
Yes, I keep falling from the hills
You would do same, if you were me.

Old Uncle Chuks

I met an Uncle of mine
Begging death not to forget
The lost essence of his time.

Emphasising he is at-
-The gate, where life is no wine
Hence, he needs an end to breath.

The order keeps changing line
He said, nothing to regret
Spilling out narrow and wide,

His age mates he knows are late
Making breath on earth a pine
Walking on but dead inside.
