Mimesis By Jacobs Adewale by JacobsAdewale: 12:58pm On Jul 26, 2012
What a plague to be barren of serenity
Lost in a milky way of indignity and atrocity
With travails spurring faces to frown
As irises turn blue for beating hearts to slow down.

Sovereign souls are fettered by thoughts of peril
Longing for succor to efface their brittle mood
When to one another we are jealous and crude
Constituting sycophants professing love not utterly real.

Courage and hope both teach us to chuckle
When quandaries pressure our skins to crinkle
Though feisty, the deprived remain desolate
Holding acquaintance of faith not to get too irate.

Life is thus sweet at the other side
Where stars glitter and beauteous moments flourish
Through ample views of mirth as fate’s skylights slide
Engendering folks to fight for their dreams rather than relinquish.

An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind
That we fail to see the solutions we all seek to find
For ignominy and futility have overtaken us
Leaving behind bugs of burden to daunt and afflict us.
Let bygone be the days we think like animals in the jungle
Upholding the survival of the fittest to justify humanity’s hideous struggle.
The good, the bad we strive to do
Live after us for generations to hold on to.

On the border line of segregation are society’s down-and-out
With dour countenances for being a cast out
Of a world they had hoped to make a difference;
Now habituating piteously in despair due to what we call indifference.

With the reflections radiating from our eyes,
Are the revelations of how we’ve built our world with lies
For doing the wrong and calling it right
When we really can’t tell what is wrong from what is right.

The past can’t be undone
Rousing in us disappointments to accept what has been done
And we don’t know why
Hence, we let go of the guilt but at times remember and cry.
