A SOUL SO FAIR

Sorrows serenade to slay serenitySinging songs of strikes and surrenderSoaking sins in strong spiritsStripping souls of sight and selves IISo I share this self sitting on your shelfKnowing I’m naught but a small shellSlipping through slopes of a Shredded shroudSinking through sharks in their summer storesHoping to find a shine in a shrineLeft years with […]

HER PIETY

She is like the pulpit on which preachers preachShe is like the church’s loyal leachShe is like the the devil’s out of reachShe is the map used to all stubborns teachBut she still lives a spinster at forty twoWith prayers numbering in twenty four hours, forty two…for a husband to loveIs her God not above?

THE REAL GOD

GOD IN NATURE

The God in a bird …is its singing …its planting …and its flying The God in a dog …is its servitude …its protection …and to some, its companionship The God in fowls …is blessings of bells of waking …lessons of care of chicks …and still, their delicious meat The God in pigs …is the lesson […]

LEAD THE WAY

I stand on a little mountain Surrounded by so many huge  mountains Some with openings showing many a beautiful fountain I tried but lost the countings   All shout to be looked and booked I sit, stand, try running But realise I am rooted Until I choose, my running is no running   Imagine all […]

IS RELIGION SUPPOSED TO MAKE OR BREAK?

When I was young, I remember I was a devout Christian. I prayed and prayed for others and sang so well at church. But growth came with the realisation that religion is psychology manipulated. Its main purpose is to use what is morally upright to cage the mind and subdue our animal urges (which they […]

THE ROTTEN WOOD

I was the rotten wood  Which water lifers used as food Water determined where I stood Would’ve fled if I could But I had not the power   On the water, you shouted In your fuming loudest “Do you wish to be the haunted?” He went in his slowest And you picked me up   […]

YOU DESERVE MY PRAISE

Caught by unseen tentacles I consulted many oracles To naught, until you magnified your miracles Now I make my car a tabernacle Because your love is sweeter than a treacle In the desert I was the dessert And my soldiers did me desert To my enemies, the timing was perfect But you appeared in your […]

Whatever it is that you’re doing You do know […]
