    Oh Life!

    I loved Her,
    Truly I did,
    She doubted me,
    Truly she did.
    I wasn't blessed financially,
    I was rich in love,
    My love for her knew no poverty.
    She left me soon for him,
    At least he was able financially.
    4 years down the line, I've moved on,
    I see her at her mother's place,
    With a kid on her back,
    Her eyes pale and weary she seems,
    From my car window I wave,
    She comes closer still confused who I am,
    Only to find my wife and baby Zuriel at the back seat,
    Tears fill Her eyes, I can't help mine too.
    Life is one big Roller Coaster.

    Trust The Process

    Trust the process!
    Stick to your lane if they change theirs,
    Reduce your speed if they want to compete,
    Be silent when they talk much,
    They sideline you, find your spot,
    Don't strain to please,
    Do good and it will bring them back..

    Trust the Process!

    Common Mistake.

    The biggest mistake in a relationship,
    Is to give your heart to someone,
    Who is in need of a brain!

    Saved By a Flash

    No sugar Nor salt! No rice Nor flour!
    You're a woman, come on!! It's time you fend for us,
    I felt poignant by the cacophony of words uttered unto me.
    Tears pelted down my fragile eyes, like a river disgorging into the sea,
    Woke up early, packed my best attires, fit into my late mother's gifted blue blouse and into one of my petite short skirt,
    Sauntered towards the bus station with the only note i had.
    A one way flight to the city, arrived when the sun had gone down into slumber,
    Welcomed by street lights and derelict streets.
    I settled on a sleazy corner and noncommittally coughed in fear.
    The grip almost chocked me, the smell of brewed men on my throat.
    I became the tenderloin to a pack of wolves, covered my mouth not even a space to move my tongue,
    I longed for home, I longed for help but nostalgia couldn't help.
    They peeled off my clothes one by one,
    Crucified me to the wall, then later buried me to the ground with their weight.
    One by one they went through me, the excruciating pain i couldn't fathom.
    Tears made their exit, forming a pool in my eyes,
    My efforts to fight met a mightier power!!
    Gave in due to lack of breath and strength,
    And decided on destiny to take its course,
    I uttered a serenity prayer for the Angel of death to take away all this pain and agony.
    But death rejected my plea and sent me flashes of light,
    Light that chased the men away rescuing me after the act. I wished it could have come earlier.
    Woke up in a cornucopian environment, greeted with smiles.
    But 7 years down the line.
    Living a rape victim life.
    A Woman Representative of my people!!
    A woman of substance

    Shut up Rape!!
    I conquered you!!

    Justice

    Beautiful she was, Ooh how stunning she was, She seemed derelict at first, and blonde due to her barren state.
    Her width and Length I couldn't fathom, but her worth that I knew, I juggled my options... Should I? Or should I not? Placed all my efforts on her, though the development quite at a fledgling state. But soon, I saw the end of my sweat..
    From barren to fruitful she sprouted, from shanties to industries she grew, from caricature to infrastructure, from displeasing to pleasing, from poor to rich she became. The profits quite immeasurable.
    Now a full grown woman she had grown into whom everyone drooled for. Everyone wanted to invest in her, and associate with her too.. How famous and prominent she had become.
    But you sadistic narcissists took her from him, admiring her from a far and soon your jealousy overtook your admiration..You corrupted every part of her pretty soul(Bribed everyone)!!! From her head to toe - stripped her to the inner core.. Took his benefactor to a thicket and pulled the trigger, killed him in broad day light, fed him to the wolves and covered everything up!! Yes she cried over his death, but she knew justice would come.
    You evicted all of her offspring with heavy machines.
    The land he had worked for now in the hands of selfish bellies, used his land for your economic gains!! But we, her grandchildren have caught up with you. We, the sons of the soil are shouting for freedom to retrieve our paternal land.. Give us our rightful Birth Right!!
    We know you'll fire your Arsenals, You will swim in our blood-yes, but from the bloodpool we will converge and form a flood, a flood that will wipe all of you away without an ark to hide in...
    Dying for our right is better than quieting over our right!! Shoot to kill!! But make sure you hit your target.
    But if you miss, you will be missed after indictment..

    Judgement Beckons.....
    Ask Kabuga!!

    My Delilah

    I felt the weight of the world on my shoulder, the array of my tireless efforts seemed to bear no fruits, I was a rookie in this town and this city life had nothing to smile about. From carrying bricks for construction sites, I worked my way up to become a concierge in a lavishing hotel after some few connections. Then I became a chauffeur and finally I became a Personal assistant to one of my regular customers. Personal Assistant(Bodyguard)...
    Then I met my Delilah who came with condescending beauty, Her hair well coiffed, yet a very incongruous female in nature. She sauntered into my life like the serpent herself. I disgorged all my love unto her. Little did i know that she was up to no good. Not only did she steal my heart, but also went away with all my sweat, my fortunes and everything valuable i had worked for.. I seemed like a beast of No Nation while in real sense I looked like a Pixie!! I became whim to many decisions But finally i settled on one..
    Took my gun and pointed it to my head!
    Sweating and trembling in readiness to fire!!
    One! Two! Three! Four!
    Pulled The Trigger!
    But I'm still alive..

    There was No Bullet..

    Don't Lie!

    We always pretend,
    Pretend to either love,
    Or to be loved,
    We meticulously fall in love,
    But hastily fall out of love too,
    Why??
    We don't take time to learn,
    Learning by practicing the truth,
    And living it.
    We have our flaws,
    But when we have decided,
    A decision to fall in Love,
    Let's be true to it,
    Because love is a school,
    A school that needs no rush,
    Nor do we have to skip its classes,
    But let us learn the virtue of openness,
    And respecting the person who loves you,
    And whom you love back.
    For the Cataclysmic effect of love to occur,
    Then two hearts must decide to spark out Love,
    Not only love, but true love at that matter.
    Unless we do this, we are just cultivating hatred,
    Hatred in the name of love,
    Love is not for pleasure,
    Nor leisure,
    Nor for bodily gains,
    Nor just pawing,
    But its an institution,
    An institution that needs much knowledge,
    And a selfish course is not the best route,
    But a two way route is the best,
    Love to be loved.
    Let's be wise,
    Let's not lie,
    Love is a life sentence,
    Make yours worth it.

    Don't Lie!!

    Being Me.

    I'm no racist,
    Nor am I segregative,
    I'm a son of the soil,
    Son of an African beauty,
    Betrothed to the laws of the land,
    Wakandan tributary

    Used!

    I feel like I'm a library book.
    I've been used, tossed around, and put down.
    I'm just waiting for someone who thinks I'm good enough to keep.

    It takes time to be accepted,but we ought to cling to the elapsing of that time for true acceptance to crave in....
