SAVE THE 100

A hundred generations destroyed each year

By a demon we got the chains to imprison

With hunger and instant gratification

We let them loose

After all, we try to protect human rights

Yet we allow it take away human lives

This declaration is so simple

“Don’t drink and drive”

Life’s got many tears to folks, don’t add to it

My boy got accepted into college

Mum is really excited, but he can never be a grad

Because of someone’s youthful exuberant.

Let’s lock up the spirit

Safeguard the consumer with a taxi

Keep the road clean

Preserve the future

You too can #SaveThe100

Don’t drink and drive!

An Ode To Mother Nature

1:31 PM

Oh nature
Our only sibling that never fights us
We wrong you in many ways many times
We willingly refuse to recycle
We destroy the lives you are building
We burn the forest for a profit
That we cannot keep
We pollute the water, land, air, sea
We politicize global warming
So we won’t do anything about it
And blame you
For the earthquakes and hurricanes
‘They are all natural disasters’
Yet you seek no vengeance
You forgive us our stupidity
And still supply our daily bread
Now I know why we call you
M.O.T.H.E.R
For you are always here for your children
Even when we wrong and reject you
Please, teach us
To love and forgive for one another
As you do for us daily
And give us a heart
To care for you
Mother Nature!

Poets Never Die

Oh how sad it is 

To see you leave

Gone with the wind 

You followed the road 

All runners go

Ashes to ashes

Your body return to dust

But

It’s only sad to say it’s sad

Yes, they bury your body

And yes, people gather to say

‘May your soul rest in peace’

But they did not bury you

For your soul is in your work

Your work is with and within us

Though death do us part

Your words

And life live forever

Cause

Poets never die

So 

Long live the Legend

Long live #ToniMorrison 

Love is an Umbrella

‪Love is an umbrella ‬

‪It covers you‬

‪Both in the rainy days ‬

‪And during sunshine ‬

‪Though umbrella can be red‬

‪Love covering is pure‬

‪And though some umbrellas‬

‪Cannot withstand storms‬

‪Love is inherently storm-resistant‬

‪So when knocked down‬

‪Never destroyed‬

But rather, strengthens the foundation

‪Cause ‘we are built for this!’‬

PAIN

Ever felt pains before you went to bed 

Thinking it would be gone overnight 

Only to wake with it in the morning?

I’m talking about the pain

That pain reliever can’t relieve 

Neither can pain-killers kill

The kind of pain that kills pain-killer

It’s really painful

And instead of dying it’s growing

Like pregnancy, it grows bigger every passing minutes

Unlike pregnancy it’s bearing no fruit

Like weeds in a precious garden

Turn on your twitter feeds

Everyone is spreading

The wildfire keeps spreading

Even the first responders are retweeting it

It has eaten so deeply into our lives

That it now becomes a part of our lives

WatchOut for Pain 2

What I See

‪What I see‬

‪I see them no more ‬

‪Not that it’s evil‬

‪It was a dream‬

‪But I can’t keep sleeping‬

‪I’m now awake chasing them‬

‪Oh wait! ‬

‪I will see them later ‬

‪In a different form‬

‪That everyone can see ‬

‪Even the blind can feel‬

‪Thanks be to Jesus!‬

‪I’m working my dream!‬

The Things I See

The things I see

Eyes have not seen

Ears have not heard

A new identity is needed

Rather, a renewed identity

One only love can give

And only love can preserve

.

The things I see

Mouth cannot tell

They’re unlawful to utter

Not that they’re unlawful

They just don’t appeal to the senses

They are the unrefined gold

Stored in a deserted building.

.

The things I see

They scare me to death

But are the reason for my living

The dream of promised land in the land of captivity

A million kids with all identity going to school

From the land of hopelessness

.

The things I see

A vision beyond human percipience

But with your renewed identity

You can catch the glimpse and refine the gold

And from the land of hopelessness

Love, faith and hope fill the nations.

She’s Healing

Child grows up

Graced up with superpowers

Yes, superpowers to overcome her fears

Though the road isn’t straight

The vacation isn’t pleasant

She knows deep down that she’s brave

She’s got the powers

More than wonder-woman

She’s got real power and courage

And she’s defeating the demons

One at a time

Yes, she’s got superpowers

She’s telling her stories

And one day we will all as always

Be proud of her

As we see her on our TV’s

Empowering young woman!

The enemies meant it for evil

But Grace turned it for her honour!
