A bridge too far


It is a bridge too far
When grace finds thou and
Uplifts thy to run life race,
On a platter of gold
And thou keeps playing
Ducks and drakes with food
Whereas people are dying;
It is a bridge too far.


It is a bridge too far
Faking marriage proposal
Just to hit and run.
It is a bridge too far
Deriving sweet pleasure
From a crocodile’s tears
While capitalizing
On the gullible.


It is a bridge too far
If thou hath down
And feeling like
Hope for tomorrow
Is but a voicemail
And the only option
Chose is to commit suicide;
It is a bridge too far.


It is a bridge too far
When thou go miles
Just to murder smiles.
It is a bridge too far
Replacing felicity
With sadness while
Breaking bones with
Sticks and stones.


It is a bridge too far
Forgetting that life is
A hair’s breadth wide
Leaving like a god
And belittling all.
“For the sake of humanity,
Dear extremist and suicide bomber;
…It is a bridge too far”.

Limerick: Protecting you

You appreciate life while running a race
Unaware that crossing lines, is all by grace
If only you knew,
That He thinks of you…
You will appreciate, His unknown face.

Sincerely I bet, none can ever count
The arrows He impedes at sleepless night,
And yet you backslide
With no shame to hide
Disregarding His pretty gift of breathe.

Your thoughts are wile, clock fast and occupied
Living for moments round and round the pie
Losing track of time
Making beets with lime
Gradually forgetting that mortals die.

Salvation is but a personal race…
Becomes the favorite line you embrace
While eating your cake
Whereas he stays awake
Ordering His Angels to guide your case

Haven’t you read Psalm 91 to the end
Honestly humans will give daily bread
Expecting to take
But He stays awake
Protecting you from things that want your head.

Breaking norms

Lord keep me off “negative tongue”
And anyone that speaks ill of me.

Envelope me with your divine rays
Seal a stamp on me “thou shalt touch”.

Let no postman, hinder my grace
God give me strength, give me wit

To overcome whatsoever
Entity and who they might be….

Extinguish them if they all come
To torment or mock me in any form

For I have lived for this my turn
For my sake, dear Lord; break the norms.

Onyekachukwu Vincent Onyeche

Hypocritical extrovert

He stays in clusters
Not far from the trash

His converse and clump
Always fetch a punch

Brawling, war ridden
Everything he touch.

Man of religion
Brainwashes the church.

He ships and worships
With a faith that lurch

He is that example
Folks critic the church.
