30 Days Of Poetic Koinonia by JohnieWalker(m): 2:40pm On Jul 03, 2016
From 2nd of July- 2 of August we will be holding a Poetry Convention on nairaland and so feel free to come and get baptised. You can drop yours also for review

What would I do when hope is but a facade
When truth and lies has exchanged place
Who would take the message to my fathers
Who sleeps peacefully in the spirit world

Should I send the prophets, O the Prophet!
But they have exchanged the truth on the altars for money
And prosperity is all they chant on the altar
And trhe poor are left to find God themselves

Should I send the Politicians, O the Politicians!
But they have made seven points agenda for change
But seems they have new seven ways of chaining us
The truthful are witch hunted for they want silence they call it

O money! O money!! Should I send her
For it has been the order of the day but is she the root of evil?
And differences are put aside and unity formed
When its there to share and loot

My Fathers thou has laid the foundation
But the builders tricked us with promises and we fell for it
We now sleep hoping for a Messiah to wake us from our slumber
O my Fathers, the cracks are
now visible and the building collapsing

BROKEN BUT NOT SHATTERED by Khalifa (JW) Like our page www.Facebook.com/poetskoinonia Is it really true good things don't last forever? Those special relationship we dreamt of and pictured just crumbles I thought ours was meant to be a fairytale But guess I was wrong since you left so badly. Those looks in your eyes when you said forever Now i know you meant never Seems you were just a raw work in progress That preferred to get wasted. I never really realised what it meant to be hurt I wanted you but now I have to deal with the fact that I can't have you Even if I try to fix myself and try to love you again What then happens to the cracks? I am tired of dreaming, I am through with trying Maybe things are brighter on the other side, hope I get to see them. Now I am having my goodbye at the airport of 'it will never be the same' I did let it get broken but don't worry it ain't SHATTERED.

THE MATRIMONY, THE BLESSING by Khalifa (JW)...Like my page www.facebook.com/poetskoinonia
My Daughter listen to thy Mother
For same path thou has chosen I took
For marriage I tell you its a rare gift
For it might not be all rosy but it isn't all thorny
For my tears flow freely today
Because my young girl embarks on a journey
My Child listen to my words for Marriage fail not
But people fail when they enter into Marriage
For love, trust and forgiveness are the foundations of marriage
In marriage reaching to each other as friend is the secret
May you look for things to praise, often say, I LOVE YOU
Marriage is a promise that takes a lifetime to fulfill
I pray for fruitfulness for you in all realms
For never allow peoples opinions stray your heart
For contentment they say is great gain
Remember my daughter in marriage, there is a blessing. For few findeth it.
