The death race

Run, run, it all begun
The second we were born
Endeavor to have fun,
Because, we will be gone
Away from varying slates
At some point in this race
According to our fate
We shall be called, “it or late”.

Run, run, it all begun
The second we were born
Endeavor to have fun,
Because, we will be gone
Into a distant land
According to God’s plan
So live life like you can
Today hop on the van.

Run, run, it all begun
The second we were born
Endeavor to have fun,
Because, we will be gone
To a place from the clay
And illusions of rays
Coming from yesterday
It might be yours today,

Run, run, it all begun
The second we were born
Endeavor to have fun,
Because, we will be gone
Dwelling in shadow’s scene
Swimming in fearless stream
Yes, it is finish line;
Realm of forever dream.

My everyday feeling

The clock ticks
And unplugs
The fuse to
Moments
Nows and nouns
That created muse
Leaving me lonely
In the dark,

Vacuum fills
My soul
Digging deep
Darks holes
Drowning me
In my tears
With a lot of beer
Down my throat…

Trying to
Figure out
Possible
Ways through
To bypass
The sadness
And the hand of death
From striking…

How I wish
I could freeze
Its breeze from
Blowing
And sweeping
Away family and
Those I care.

But we can
Only shift
May be think
How to
Substitute
Death we can not cheat
At the end.

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.

My time

A day shall come,
When my darkest
And longest shadow
Shall fade away
Not just to beam
But probably,
After a ray
Catches up with it.

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.

Our Reality Show

We are all entertainers
Performing on the globe
At different locations
And varying genres…

What a wonder to see
The sunrise and sunset
With light as cameras
Scorching hot are some spots

And while the snow flakes drop
Others feel the harmattan
Long are some entertainments
Others have a short career.

What an unending programme
In heavens; the viewers
Must be addicted to
These reality shows…

For they switch the channels
Every twenty four hours
Giving rise to sunrise
And even to sunset.

Paddling

Challenges comes
Challenges goes
And life keeps going
On and on again…

No one wins the race, but
The misconceptions
Of man’s intuitions
Created competitions.

Life is a cycle,
Short as a bread
Breath is a ride
Around the cycle

While paddling
Enjoy the ride
Because you would not
Go around it twice.

FOMO ( Fear of missing out)

Journey of life takes me to a place
Where life is calm and peaceful
Though, sometimes grasses go dry
But once the rains comes they sprout

I dwelled underneath a friendly sky
Inhaling fresh air on healthy diets
I have a plan, to live a genuine life
Hence I stay focus on my lonely track

But the wind keeps bringing pictures
Of friends who flip to another path
Where milk and honey falls from the sky
On hands whose feet are on greener grass

Everyone I have ever known now glows
Adopting different accents and richly postures
“YOLO – You only live ones” they scream
Creating FOMO – “fear of missing out” in me

Every seconds a new picture drops
I see, life is fun and party to them
Feels I’m an eclipse, hence everyday
I wait for the earth to rotate, so I may glow

Looking around me, I see just me
And it takes me under the weather
Feeling lonely and underachieved
I just hope I am on the right track.

Tricky knife of death

There are knives in the air
Cutting memos we share
How I wish life is sold
No one would feel the cold
I have seen what death wears
Hence I may never fear
Sadly, it changes its clothes
Every time it comes close.

I’m not a Prophet
But I’ve seen velvets
Spreading across the page
On a cradle that age.
It never seems to cease
Ricochetting with ease
Bringing tears on pillows,
From the doors to windows.

I dreamt it took Shady
I woke, I told Shady
Evading time to come
For a big tree to fall
We went down on our kneels
To nullify bad dreams
But the tricky knife graced
Another folk to grave.

Coming of smash

I do not like grapes but in a bad shape,
When I ran out of luck, and had a shock
That the nuts are rare to the blind squirrels
The Elephant fell; I experienced hell.

I do not like grapes but in a bad shape,
When I got no help, and no honor left,
Then I knew; that when you smile, the world smiles
A lot but, when you cry, alone will cry.

I do not like grapes but in a bad shape
I adjusted my taste, and amended my faith
To enable me yield and let the pain lead
And breed me seeds that will cover the fields.

I do not like grapes but in a bad shape,
It was condition that made crayfish bend
Hence, I only breath with hope and believes
Bearing it all, till the smash hits the shores.
