WAIT

The Ink is gone
Tears drop fills the pen
The papers are wet
Then they tear.

...........................................................


A match is struck
The fire fails to burn
Another stick gone
The numbers dwindling.

................................................


The Cock crows
The sun fails to rise
Neither do the moon and stars remain
Vision blurred.

.........................................................



The sahara wind blew
The dust covers the west
Harmattanized our vision
The mission abolished.
.............................................................


They think we are done for it
But we just began
They think we have no where else to go
They might be right.

..........................................................


Refill the ink
Ignite the match stick again
The papers smile
The fire burns.

..............................................................


Hope arisen
Courage to move on
But the sun still won't give light
And the harmattan won't go with days.

...............................................................



Though is dark
We will wait for the light
Cos His promises are sure
Though they tarry.

..............................................................



Thy sun will never go down he said
Neither shall thy moon withdrew itself
For I shall be thy everlasting light
And the days of thy mourning shall be over.

Bread and Butter

D bread said 2 d butter
how come we stick so much
d butter replied
u were made from me
witout me u r worthless
...............................................

The bread said 2 d butter
no, witout me u are useless
you need my support to be useful
wit u i was made
witout me you are vain
............................................

The butter said to d bread
i know when am alone am might be worthless
i know i need ur support to have beauty
but witout me u have no life
so i say we both need each other

..................................
The bread said
we both need each other is an understatement
we were made for each other.
I love you butter!
Me too bread!

Done...........


Cant live no more
This pain is making me feel like a slowpoke
Creaking me out like i belong to no one
But am here believing that i should have won
No matter what have done
Since d day dat u were gone
I keep falling in to the pond
Looking up at the sun
Hoping that you will come
And take away my pong
Before my time is done
In this dome
And i go home
To live alone
Till the end of time

Love
excerpts from songs of solomon
.....................................................

Your lips covered me with kisses
Your love is better than wine
Your hair is beautiful upon your cheeks
And falls along your neck like jewel
How beautiful are you my love
The lily among thorns is my darling among women
..................................
I hear my lovers voice
He comes running over the mountain
Racing across the hills to mi
Asleep on my bed night after night
I dreamt of the one I love
My lover has the scent of myrrh
As he lies upon my breast
...........................................
How beautiful you are my love
How your eyes shine with love behind your veil
Your hair dances like a flock of goat
Bounding down Olumo rock
Your teeth are as white as snow
Not one of them missing
They are all perfectly matched
Your lips are like scarlet ribbon
How lovely they are when you speak
.......................................................
The look in your eyes my sweetheart
And the necklace you are wearing
Have stolen my heart
Your love delights me
Your love is better than wine
Your perfume more fragrant than any spice
The taste of honey is on your lips
Your tounge is milk and honey for me
..............................................

My love, my heart
A secret garden
A walled garden, a private spring
There the plants flourish
Restore my strength with raising
And me with apples
For I am weak from passion

HIM
.....................

Bold nd fearless
shameless nd selfless
peerless nd priceless
he is their fortress
...................................
stainless nd flawless
faultless nd sinless
but rendered homeless nd hopless
for bein their fortress
...................................
still fearless
never helpless
nd wil remain flawless
.......................................
for his firmness
he brought brightness
even in his life's shortness
we can c his success
stil we fil his presence

You were always fun mum

The lyrical grenade
Even now u gone bro

When Nigeria Mourns
............................................
When Nigeria mourns, only d rich dies.
When Boko haram strikes the poor,
only their families mourns.
Accidents daily on our roads,
only plane crashes are worth mourning.
The poor mourns daily, so no need 2set aside a day for it.
18 graduates of imo state university died on their way 2 youth service, A service of Nigeria to Nigeria.
Nigeria cant mourn does, cos they aint rich enough 2 board a plane. If u dont belong to the heirachy of power, Nigeria wont mourn you cos u are a minus and u are never counted.
Mourn your dead Nigerians, cos when Nigeria mourns only the rich dies.....
P:S No disrespect 2d dead...its just a bitter truth

Falling ship
....................................
Started together
some stepped aside
some stopped over
but we kept on movin
.............................................
Over the sea
across boders
perseaverance wearing out
but never gave up
.........................................
The wind blew
the storm rose
one man down
but we never looked back

............................................
Another has just fallen
our numbers shortening
please can it just end
for the fear of who's next

I feel honoured

I know it will worth your while
Cause I will keep raising the bar high

WORDS
...............................


The beauty of words
That soften the meanest of hearts
That gives hope to nations
And causes the best of wars
.............................................
Martin Luther spoke a word
A word that shook the world
That brought down cities walled
Words that won awards
..............................................
A word from Ghandi
Mahatmanized a nation
In the face of oppression
To give liberation
...........................................
A soft word turn away wrath
And stops wars fought
Stop running back and forth
Let your words put you in front
...................................
William Wallace spoke freedom
Mother Theresa spoke compassion
Romeo spoke love
And I speak life
.............................................
Boko haram speaks war
APC speaks hate
PDP speaks failure
Let Nigerians speak

Darken
...........................

The star fell
All eyes sees
Trembling in the skies
The light is gone
Darkness erupt
Confusion on the earth
............................
Mother crying
Wailing for her child
Calling out his name
But darkness blindfolded her
She can't see him
He can't hear her cry
He is too cold to be embraced
..................................................
When will the light come?
When will this darkness wash away?
When will the sun shine its light?
When will resurrection come?
...............................................................
Taking in his prime
By the cold hand of death
Who will heal her wound
Who will see her to her grave
................................................
No! No!! No!!!
Death where at thou
Take me instead she cried
Death where is thy sting
Give him a second chance
..................................................
Many are my afflictions
Since the day of his birth
Please someone light up the sky
Please wake him up for me
Please bring him back to me

Song of lovely regret
.........................................
How could I ever lied
That I want you out of my life
With tears rolling down my eyes
Yes please I want to make you my wife
No other bed I want to lay
With you at night my girl I want to lie
Wishing you could carry my child
Like Bonny and Clyde
Is with you I want to ride
Till death tear us apart
Promise to always have your back
For better or worse
No matter how worse
Together we are better than worse
Let's retrace our path into the past
A take a part of the past
And form a new path better than the past path
Let me take you on a journey
Am sure you will be calling me honey
then I will get you feeling Hot
From now till the next morning

Irony
.............................

Born with no silver spoon
Lived on the golden rule
Favoured in the midst of all
Smiles at every trial
With much tribulations he grew
They taught he was invincible
With so much ego and pride
He breaks many barriers
And gain so much foes
They taught he was fulfilled
But in him was desperation
A great will and desire
To par with his responsibility
His looks truly invincible
His smiles says he has it all
But in his heart
Lies fear
Fear of tomorrow
Fear of the unknown
Fear of underachievement
His inner man is dying
But he never stop smiling
His will unending
But his path unknown
