In the lonely days in my mothers’ womb, I crushed, stepped and scratched to come into a world. A world I heard whispers of at night, with all the kind words, with carefully placed kisses on my home-my mothers’ womb. The man that stood by told me of the beauties of this world making me eager to see this loving world.
I am hear, the story is different.
Why are people so angry? I ask
What do we stand for?
With all these knowledge acquired,
the interpretations of forgiveness, love and welcome is still gibberish.
Discoveries were made years ago,
battles were fought,
victories and legends were made
but the perished souls were left back on the battlefields.
Glories! All in the name of a country.
Flags are raised in their honor but the pain in a mother’s heart pierces and break.
A baby’s call for papa is never answered.
Isn’t this enough!!
Here we are now.
What do we fight for? Children rise to avenge their parent.
Leaders lead to be fearless and rich.
Politicians amass wealth, just power drunk and selfishness.
Human lives reduced to tags
#Alllivesmatter. Aleppo I cry with you
We have prayed
Our candles are lit
Our knees are cuddling the grounds
Our palms are embracing each other
Our tears are stormy now
Please! Please!! STOP
Our humble request isn’t for a new life but a better place and not one acquired through bloodshed.
Let settle our qualms. Let it be banters not gunshots
You want to die old. SO DO WE
YOUNG, NOW WOKEN
When did I stop chasing those dreams?
Having that light skinned body
Those soft beards
Be tall with muscles
Own those nice clothes
Make thousands to trillions
Technologies and its latest updates
Cars and gadgets
When did I stop chasing those opinions?
Living by what they think
Giving them the opportunity to have a comment
Do this, Do that
Don’t walk I there
Don’t question what you don’t know
When di I stop wanting
All the fine ladies that quarks the heart and
Stills the mind
Capture the lips in numbness
Those gents that put the eyes in wowing
Moments and heightens desire
With time, I noticed life and
Its happiness lives not beyond self
And the joy we search lives within us
We live for ourselves
To accept and love others more
And success and failure
Are just mindsets
