Across The Niger

I worked laboriously on the idiot machine,
That failed to send my thoughts, across the Niger.
As it displayed a message,
That weary my mind "User Busy!"

I peeped out, in mid-night
If I can get a Dove,
To convey my message across the Niger.
For several hours I waited. Where is Dove?
In a strange land, "User is Busy!"

I was impregnated with thoughts,
That momentarily pressed my mind.
My eyes were red, As I began to labour
Like a woman in travail.
And it beep twice the user is busy.

Setting it on to dialed for ever,
As I watched the light going-off,
And the thoughts in me dozing-off,
Then, I married my bed. "User is busy".

The Cathedral bell calling for the  morning mass.
Tinkling, teared my heart out.
I profusely weird my words,
Waiting to see if "User is Busy".

I pondered angrily that I would smashed it.
But to no avail the baby was born,
And the poor little one cried.
User busy, User busy, "Message Sent!"
Across the Niger to the one you love.

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.
