Pleasant Sight

I giggled and laughed out loud, 
While gazed at the memorial statue, 
Near the narrow road in south-east London.
It cracked my ribs and brought memory of "the forest of a thousand demons".
His short gun, a replica of the one described in the novel.

I often connected to the childhood days while I passed-by
As it took me out of my immediate environs.
To one of the storyline, 
A pointer to where I stopped the last time.

A flashback of those days when my Mum read Koku Baboni
As I patiently listened and waited for how it will end.
These went on for a while, recycling the old storylines.
Till I stopped, right there at Trafalgar Square.

Ho, the beautiful Trafalgar Square,
Brought the memory of the lonely Londoner.
And I remebered, I've impressed it in my mind that
I can never spend my days in greater London
Like the lonely Londoner.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
