A Rainy Night in a Nigerian City

Strange 'tis,
Walking in the rain
On the path to your home,
Headlights behind you.
Bent poles, dangling cables─
A myriad of carelessness.
The darkness, the wetness:
You are almost in the ditch.
Wailing hawkers, haggling buyers─
Indifferent to sounds' enveloping pitch.
On the day's deathbed, the blackness
Thickens, and then comes quietness.
What's left for today is a mess─
Dirt: dumped cans, polythene bags, junk;
All aspiring to be the foundation
Of our tomorrow's environment.

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.
