DILEMMA OF HOPE

DILEMMA OF HOPE

**Heavens gate look tall,

Taller than me and my very behind,

My behind is lost, lost in the woods,

No hope to return ,no hope of reborn

I live everyday wishing , like birds

I live everyday hoping like beggars

 

I grew up only to realize that I'm broke

I grew up not in poverty but as poverty

Many days I huke on the streets

Many times I slept under bridges

Like bird in the dense, like lions in the nest

I was busy looking for my fortune

 

Oh life, are thou not fair to me

Oh God are  thou so cruel to me

Only my inherited homestead is left

That's the only thing papa kept

I always thought life was made of Roses

Oh But now I know life is made of crisis .

 

My cosmos have been invaded

With Homo sapien of anarchy

With ambassadors of poverty

Subjection and inhumane tyrants

Faces like angels, minds like deity

They Work in Africa, sleep in America.

 

I was told western education is important

Wondering the woods, clumping the street

At the expense of hope, I got an education

At the evidence of joy, I felt a liberation

Two decades after all I see is frausraton.

Oh mummy when will I wear long sleeves

Long-sleeve with white collar and a skin

Oh mummy when will I wear long trousers

 

When will I sit on a four wheelded tire cage

When will I also fly in a sky house like birds

Oh mama When will I send you Penny and coins

When will I buy you linen,cotton and whiskey

Your grave yard will I adorn with gold

Your burnt huts and tent will I refurbished with clay.

 

**All these and many more will I do,

If only and only if I live , if only I don't die

Birds will cross the road without having their motives questioned .

starfishes will walk and pigs will swim** .

My Love oh my Dove
The day that our love 
would find its way
From my heart into your soul
Embrace It until it's wings grow tall
And It's legs cease to crawl
Then we shall stroll
Serene celestial shore
With you in my arms oh my Love

My love

O mother of affections,
Heartthrob of my spirit
Lovebird of a darling soul;
like a river, you let
Love flow through my heart
O my love.

MOTHER
You are my pain curing,
You are my thoughts hearing,
You are my progress rising,
That's why soul of mine is good..
You are that person who blessed me like a tactor,
You are my bene factor,
And don't let me lose hope,
That's why soul of mine is good..

When I saw him, my charming prince.
The burden that filled my heart,
melted away. At the sound of his angelic voice. Ho, my lovely charming prince.

A sweet sensation, I can sense the flavour.
As the butterfly, flying in my stomach.
Aroma and splendor of a beautiful live well spent.
