Dear Mama

For my children she'd always say.

From that moment her feet touched the ground each morning;

She set her entire focus on us.

Even at night; there she stood, right behind us.

It was better than a 24 hour doctor service, I tell you.


She'd rather cloth them and stay naked.

It was like a switch, one which either flip belonged only to her children.

Selfless, like the traditional African woman.

Of course she would get angry, but didn't she always forgive?

'Don't you worry' was the phrase, somehow she always fixed it.


I'm hoping to be a better version of you, when I become a mama.

Dear Mama.

Ese.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

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

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..
