Where do we go wrong

where do we go wrong?

we were all tired,

tired of all the promises.

we needed change,

change that wil bring a lasting solution.


there is hunger in the land

unemployment is at the peak

untimely death everywhere

terrorist are coming like a wild fire

bombing here and there.


workers rejected deployment to some part.

soldiers resigned,

the arms are not strong to fight back.

we needed God intervention.


some say we are the help we need,

the need to change the government.

a larger percentage was in support

to change a man who is trying his best.


eventually the new government came,

the Messiah we have been waiting for.

the man conversant with the ways of governance,

handling of  security should never be his problem.


but now what is the problem? 

the Messiah we believed was not the one?

the situation has become worse

so I ask, where do we go wrong?

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
