FADING BREATH

Standard

Golden pyre, well designed
Hymnals accompany the hearse
As it departs for the feet below
Six steps deeper from earth

Yesterday they were here
Today they left
Tomorrow was never to be
Never knew, never would

Life, a fleeting mirage
Man, mere fading breath
Now he lives
Later he is gone
Ephemeral on earth are we

FOR RELIGION I

Standard

In the name of religion
We pray for a break
From the vicious cycle we started
The lies, rituals and practices started by humans

In the name of religion
We ask for a change
To love and genuineness of acts
Be truly loving and care for others
As such as exampled in the Holy Books

In the name of religion
I seek for a better world
Where men live like siblings
Each others’ good pursuing
Kind words, good deeds
Ringing out true as the heart harbors it

THE MAIDEN’S THOUGHT

Standard

Someday, I’ll grow up and blossom
Many bees and birds will chase me
Pollination will happen
Fine species will be bred

One day, I’ll be more beautiful
My man will come for me
He’ll prove himself to be the best
Strong, wise and and cute kids shall I bear him

A day approaches
The gazelle sniffs air calmly
A worthy male appears enthralled
her beauty and gaiety mesmerizes
Soon after, beautiful ones will be born

CURSED BE CUPID

Standard

Cursed be Cupid

His wiles always getting at me

His arrows never miss a heartbeat

 

This time he struck my heart

Even reasoning fled me

Alas, his reason is brutal

I’m left with mere pinings

 

If I ever get hold of him

Necks will twist, blood will be shed

The gods must be crazy

Letting him wander freely

FOR CHISOM, MY FORTUNE

Standard

An angel smiled at me

Told me my life’s gonna bloom

Thought t’was a dream

Until I realized it was really for me

 

I met the angel again

I tripped  as tho a cable hit me

Tell no one about this encounter

For the expected won’t rain

 

A moment metamorphosed

Hours trickled into days

Restlessness sets in

For I yearn to know more

 

Enchanted I stand

Enthralled I wait

Wishing for wings

I desire to always meet this angel,

CHUKWUSOMNAZU

 

*Chisom was a friend I met in a cab, a seminarian. Our friendship was for only a week but I will always treasure it

THE ART OF SEDUCTION

Standard

Slowly and coyly, he struts

Graceful smile, body like hercules

Boyish charms, witty words

All like missiles aimed at hearts

 

They say only the foolish can fall for his acts

Yet they tripped and fell,

Neck over toes

He takes only that which he wants

The leftovers are left in a mirage

 

They believe what never was

Never is

Neither ever will be

For he is too smooth to be played

This is his own game

His very invention

THE DEVIL SMILED AT ME

Standard

In a cold labyrinth

Snaking and twisting my way out

How did I get in? Which way out?

It’s all faint and almost a waste

 

Then like a flash he came

The devil smiled at me

And stole my heart while at it

Right here in his labyrinth, I was ensorceled

 

I am deeper in it

Desperately wishing for a way out

The devil smiled more

My brain it now tries to steal

The battle rages hot

BAE: BEST ABIYAMO EVER

Standard

Enchanting smiles, warm bossom

My first visual on earth

Never tired or weary

Mom is bae

 

Best Abiyamo ever

My love, my comforter

My hands and legs as a child

My baby girl as I’ve grown

 

Words can’t be enough

To appreciate your worth

A rare gem

Nonexchangeable, Inestimable

Mom, Made Of More
