purpose for living?

Oh if the stars don't shine tonight
Or if the moon don't give its light
To view the beauty in this darkness 
When oceans are no longer red
And oceans no more blue 
When u aren't there to call from the deep
Then what purpose is there for living
If living is passing each day without u, Then seeing each day, I pray not

THE WAILING PEN

THE WAILING PEN
All emotions and feelings are being channelled into me. 
Awaken by the necessity for a voice 
Bringing the deepest thoughts to life
My nib grows faint
My blood gets smeared day to day
Yet, deep thoughts have not been expressed
How do I lay bear your numerous thoughts?
How do I lay bear your pains ?
How do i express ur joy?
How do I show the world ur deep intellect?
How do I show the world ur greatest fear?
My blood is getting dry but necessity is laid upon me to bring your thoughts to life



 
Never let ur ink run dry cuz ur pen can shape your world

Since the blood!!!

Since the blood
Blood that paid our indebtness to death
Blood that has brought about a newness of life
Life eternal, transcendent, surpassing all definition of longevity
Causing 'never ending' to be an ending after all
Since the blood,

Come back!

When the rain falls, I can't hear myself cry. 
Ur voice in my head only I hear
Scream ur name till my voice leaves its box
The thought of u throws me to d ground
I can't recover from ur chastisement
Come back to me n remain mine
Ohhhhh come back n remain glued to my arms 
A baby suckling in it's mother's arms 
A mother's love so strong 
A cord to remain forever unbroken
In fire its seal remain bonded
In truth our vows we again say
Come back love 
                                  ......... ...Aribo Oluwatoba

Dream right!!!!!

Dream right!!!!!
It doesn't cost much to dream
To be on top you have got to pay the price
Anything short, you pay twice
Until there's vision in your sight
Towards illumination till u c d light
Never give up on your dreams
Cus out of your dreams will arise reality
Small will become great
Then someday you will look back and see how far your dream has led you

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

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.
