BITTER TRUTH

Happy those early days of my life!!!
When I was once an innocent child;
Of all the sins in this sinful world
Of all the atrocities committed by one person or the other
When most of the thinking was done for me

None of these I wanted or hope for
As a child, I cared not for yesterday
Neither did I worried about tomorrow

No lie to tell, nothing was hidden

But since I have to become a Man
It seems I have no choice of my own
I was taught to blend in
By friends, families and foes
I was taught how to survive,
If I ever wanted to survive, which I must

I was indeed born an INNOCENT,
But I can never live this life through being an INNOCENT
I would have really wished for nothing else
If possible to become a CHILD again
Just for my untainted life to be returned to me

An INNOCENT and HAPPY SOUL!

UNITY

If you laugh together you can work together
Love is all we need
We just need to love each other
Trust men and they will be true to you
We need to trust each other
Treat them great and they will exhibit their greatness
That’s one of the principles of life

Men of different complexions
Men of different backgrounds
Men of different ideologies

Coming together as one, to stand as one

None of us is as smart as all of us
Individual we are one drop, together we are an ocean
Many hands make light a piece of work so they say
Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable remains a fact
United we stand, divided we fall is nothing less than a truth

By so doing,
We are UNITED!

TROUBLED HEART

My heart sinks at the hearing of your name
My heart is troubled like the ocean waves
It’s as if the once beautiful world is about to end
It feels as if the once blossomed flower is perishing

My heart feels so heavy, thinking about those moments we’ve shared together
Had I know its gonna be like this,
I would have made my stepping with caution
I would have been more prepared
I would have realized how the so called “LOVE” works.

My heart is injured because of the hole you left there

My mind is sick because your love has encapsulated my thoughts
My legs seems to collapse whenever I passed through where we’ve been together

All have ever sought for is your love
All have ever wanted is you being by my side
Am dying everyday with you far away from my heart

My love, please do reconsider your thoughts
I love you dearly

Who else would I have called upon?

Who else would I have called upon?
Who else would have helped me when called upon?

When tribulations doomed my path
When calamities have beclouded my thought
When challenges have become my everyday meal
Who would I have called upon?

If not the mighty MAN in battle?
The only KING of all kings
The only ANCIENT one
The LION of the tribe of Judea
The CREATOR of the creations
The END to all ends
The RULER of every universe
The EVER LIVING God

Its only You I can call upon
Because You are the only one worthy to be called

A Mistake

With a sorrowful heart am holding this Noble Pen
With about to die mindset I am right now
Happiness seems to have deserted from me
Joyfulness has become a thing of the past
Crying and wailing has become my everyday habit

The tears in my eyes are not of joy

The sweats coming out of my body are not of the results of exercise, but of confusion
My body cries out of agony
A day mistake has caused me all of these
Am confused and am lost
The pain has become unbearable
Oh Lord! Please heal my soul

A BEACON OF HOPE

I am not only what I say I am
I am not only what people say I am
My background doesn’t define who or what I am
I am what my handiwork says I am

A cup of water to those thirsty
A plate of rice to those hungry
A torch of lite to those in darkness
A trailblazer to those who doesn’t have the strength to struggle

I stand right, but stands to be corrected
I stand tall in all my doings
I stand as a beacon of HOPE!!!

Promise to my unborn children

I pledge to my children male and female
To be faithful, loyal and honest
To serve and raise you with all my heart
To perform my responsibilities in my best capacity
To spend my leisure time judiciously with you
To not make a false promise to you

Possibly, I might not be the best in your world
But I will try and be the best you can reckon with
And uphold the honour and glory of a father
So help me God.
Amen.
I remain your loyal and loving father to be.

My Dream

My Dream!!!
I have a dream
I have goals to fulfil
I have a bright future
I have a focus am pursuing
I’ve got to think high to rise
I have got to be sure of myself
Before I can ever fulfil my goal
Before I can ever be the man
I have dreamt of.

A Death Wish

A death wish

Noble Pen

I wish I was given a death sentence
I wish my heart could just stop beating
I wish the world could just come to an end without me knowing
I wish all these can just come true in a twinkle of an eye
I wish it could all come true at the snap of my fingers
The grief in my heart seems unquenchable
The tears in my eyes seems unstoppable

The hole in my heart seems irreparable

I wish I could go back in time
I wish I could turn the table around
I wish I could restructure my life as I’ve wanted
My sight have become blurred
My legs have become frightened
My thinking have become too myopic
I have become too confused to understand
This grief has become too much for me to bear
I wish I could just die, but it would have been too selfish of…

El Mayarah (Stronger Together)

Made out of my rib was called a woman
A woman of my own was carved out from my heart
One heart divided into two, just to become one again

Two pairs becoming one pair,
A pair to achieve a dream,
A dream to share a thought,
A thought to achieve a purpose,
And a purpose to breed one family.

Apart we are individual with less strength
Together we are one, stronger more than an ocean
Stronger together than a legion of soldiers
We are stronger together

365 Days

365 days on the road,
Hustling like a lion

Who believes in it’s claws and hunting sense for daily meal

Digging into the soil everyday to find food

The pig believes in it’s snout and acute sense to achieve this

Waking up everyday, hustling to become a man one day
365 days on the road,
Fighting through hurdles everyday
To become someone to be reckoned with

NO ONE KNOWS

Waking up from my bed early this morning
Feeling the breeze and perceiving the smell of a new day
Hearing the sound and chirp of the birds
Feeling so happy and energetic
Planning and foreseeing my day,
As if I know what the day has in stock for me
As if I know what is gonna happen in the next minutes

Growing up of a child is like a sun coming out from its shell,
Trying to reach the highest peak
As if the sun knows how the day is gonna be

Someone said, we can study history, philosophy and Plato’s ideology, but tomorrow is still a mystery

A mystery which can be your opportunity to fail
Or be successful if you please and wish.

You can study the weather through every means you are aware of
You can predict the descending of the rain on earth
Same goes go the shinning and scorching of the sun for the day
But that’s as far as your guess goes
Because no one knows tomorrow.

Things being bad today, you being the first from behind in your class
You having nothing in your possession, you facing tribulations right now
Doesn’t really define how your future is
Just live your life as you are suppose to live it
Because no one knows tomorrow

Do not allow anybody to define who you are
Cos if you do, you would have to follow that path
As if they know, but no one knows tomorrow.
And because no one knows tomorrow

Our living today must be right and bright

With love in our hearts and our goals in sight
Just to live the best we can and await a better tomorrow
For no one knows tomorrow.

Journey of life

Through the hurdles of life, I proceed
In the journey of life I know nothing about
In the journey of life that no prep is given.

Challenges would be faced that must be passed through
Problems would be encountered that must be solved
Who are you to say this is how life would be?
Who are you to say, life will offer you this or that?
Life comes in different form as it deem fit
It manifest as it wishes.

Attitude doesn’t really count in the journey of life,
It takes 13 percent
Behaviors doesn’t really count in the journey of life,
It only takes 8 percent.
Your way of reasoning doesn’t count much too, it only takes 10 percent
Experience counts a little, because it takes 15 percent
Hard work doesn’t count much in the journey of life,
It takes nothing more than 7 percent.

What else now count if not Grace?
Because it takes a whole 50 percent in the journey of life

Grace of God upon my life as I journey through this life.

WHEN WILL IT BE?

Tears rolled down my cheek, whenever I think about my sickened country
My heart skips whenever I watched the headlines on my television set
My heart cried out aloud;
When will it be?

That the barrens in our lands be conceived
That our invested crops bring forth a good tidings
When will it be?
That the bribery and corruption in our land be bygone
That the multitude would be graced
That the theft would not be appointed
When will it be?

That our leaders would have mindset of serving the Nation and not stealing from it
That our leaders’ focus and goals would be to improve and develop Nigeria

That their sole mission would be to make Nigeria a solid, unified and envied Nation
When will it be?

That our parents would have understood the real meaning of “charity begins at home”

That our parents would have understood the concept and benefit of discipline
That our parents would have understood the point of being a good role model
When will it be?

That our unborn children would be rest assured of a good future
That our leaders of tomorrow would be the leaders of that tomorrow
That our children’s future would not be truncated due to available resources not being utilized well
When will it be, that my sick country would be healed?
My mind shattered because my country is bedridden
And it needs to be healed.
When will it be, that my country would be healed?

THE GRIEF IN MY HEART

It was like a dream in reality, like a reality in dream land
Like the impossible in the possible world
It was unbelievable to the hearing, and unforeseeable to the soothsayers
The grief in my heart.
My heart sinks thinking about those moments as children,

Thinking about those days, when all we have to do was to play as children

When all on our minds was to remain happy with each other.
But now, diminishing return has set in,
Love has turned to hate,
Respect has turned to disrespect,
Trust has turned to distrust,
Unity has turned to disunity,

The grief in my heart.
It saddens me, cos it feels as if am the only one concerned
It bothers me so much, cos the end is tragedy.

How I wish reverse is the case,
How I wish the grief in my heart is actually happiness and comfort,
The grief in my heart.

HIS WILL

I lifted my head straight to the sky
Seeking nothing else than God’s eyes
My hands were stretched forth,
Just to receive His gifts of life
Different path were laid before me

Righteous and unrighteous ones

Yet, I went on my knees

To sought for what He desired for me
I waited patiently to hear his voice
My door was widely opened for him to come in
On the eve of the fourth day,

He said to me, “Rise, when its your turn you will know. My son”

My Secret Super Star

Am sure it all started as a joke in the early 90’s
A joke turned to a dream, a dream turned to a wish
And a wish turned to a reality.
My secret super star!!!

A letter had to be written to God,
Requesting for a male child, before I could be conceived
She fought through all hurdles, just for me to become alive
So many challenges, so many problems
Yet, she wouldn’t have a doubt on me or my success
My secret super star!!!

My birth on earth wasn’t as easy as she had thought
She had to fought and endure for another three days for her to be delivered of me It wasn’t easy on her at all, as have heard
Her joy was with no boundary, the day she set her eyes on me. Bringing me up was nothing but hell

“3:30am-12am, that was her routine for so many years”

Just for me to survive and become someone to be reckoned with
My secret super star!!!

Always being there for me, rainy/dry season
Always at my beck and call, winter/autumn
She will never let me derail
Always being there to tutor, mentor, discipline and make things right
Even when I don’t deserve her kindness, she would still have mercy on me
My secret super star has done all these and more for me.

I know her love for me can’t be quantify
My mum is my secret super star
My secret super star is my mummy
She has written my story, and she hasn’t stopped writing
My secret super star.

I wish I could just die, but it would have been too selfish of me

I wish everything could just come to an end.

Enough is enough
