Onion cause tears

Life is sweet, but grows to become sour
Nothing is synonymous to flowers
Than making it to the topmost tower
There are two ways up there, but avoid fears
One is step by step, the other is fast share
Onion mean well but it could cause some tears.

True character is seen when power,
And money is huge like whales that blower
In cool comfort, the raindrops and showers
Overnight makes all blemishes to clear
But the way to the top has many broken chairs
Onion mean well but it could cause some tears.

Growing root

With the air, the water and dust
Root stretch out, wide to depths

Reaching for steps, like scales and flesh
Rotating to possible feet

Amongst others, both short and long
Whence thou bond be so super strong.

Desert Lizards

I am
A horned lizard
Wired
To naturally
Calculate
Before and
While I forage
Into the desert
In a midday heat.

I am
A lizard
Dwelling
In the dry
And drought desert
But I am fatter
Than many others
You may find
In the richest forest.

I am
A night lizard
Who don’t
Chase after shadows
For I might
Be trapped…
While I forage in the desert,
I hunt for success
And I never quit.

Native Fly: Africa

Africa!
Land of great minds, leaders and subjects
‘Uh, oh no!’
High and low, beauty for sure
Sweet and sour, but sugariness more promising;

East to west, no lazy man in the vast east
Who know not how to compel his brown skin to struggle
Irrespective of pre-eminent beauty and splendour
Tiling the soil when the sun fries the most
Nor set traps with bamboos to catch wild beast in Tanzania.

There is no true inhabitant of the west
Loathing to let-slip enthusiasm
Dwelling in or outside the marvellous crystalline rocky land
Of a huge Nigeria black, a Ghana brown,
And a Sierra Leone blood red sand.

Calling himself an African
Bearing a black coloured name
Loving the African Culture and claims to have heard
Great minds like Mandela,
And wouldn’t believe that Africa is destined for greatness.

Is it the enormous Central, historic North or South?
The white and black in shield and craton
Histories, oh great Egypt!
First in many, last in a few
Diverse ethnic groups beautiful cultures, arts and designs.
