no wonder gold are from the deepest mines.
If I ever thought we were wasting time with poetry
and we might soon become history,
listening to this young man pour out his heart
shows poetry is all we should support on this earth.
Ok, this is not a poem
I'm just trying to say I "gbadun" this poet.
I will vote for him thrice :) .
Memories are strength
I may be too young
Sitting still in this pool
Of cold blood, tears
And flitting memories
Of mama's first word
But I know her death
Wasn't because she hated me...or
Wanted to un-heavy her bones
If this words are lies
Why then did I cry? As I watched her die
Her tongue became cold
Her eyes grew so wild
But couldn't see me wishing her alive
Stretched forward for a last warmth
As she laid lifeless
In a comfy coffin more expensive
Than her well loved wedding gown
Still, she could not say a goodbye
Or bid a last kiss,
She could not pet me by the shoulders
And say "son ... I love you "
Have you once with your hands
Worked the shovels to open the grounds
To burry the remains
Of the one you love so deep?
Side-by-side your cold eyes
Unable to drop the heavy tears
Taunting the good memories
Out of your skull
Has life pushed you to tears, so unfair?
And your have not even a voice
To howl your grieve
Or ears to listen to your heart beats
It's like the whispers of Daffodils
On your window sill
After a heavy storm
It's like the first well spiced meal
Of a newly wedded queen
For her long awaited groom
It's like the boost of an urchin
Saying "I can move on"
Have you pondered your mind?
Why gold is from the deepest mires?
Crude oil from the darkest pits
Lovely poems from terrible scenes
Love songs from broken hearts
Luxuries from breaking rocks
Peace from war
Grieve from joy
Solution from confusions
Predictions from illusions
Mystifications from explanations
If yes, then you know why
On this forlorn earth of hatred and all
My lines would go so deep your soul
Like the tears of a lonely orphan
Picking waterside pebbles
To pluck down the heavens
From its wide reign
Then you would know why
Even the darkest of cloud
Or the deadliest venoms of western hurricane
Can't stop that you
When you really want to breakout from those clouds
And know you can go in
For a winning again
Cos the word smiles
But only when you smile
