Demystify the Night. 

 Demystify the Night.  A gathering of shadows  Laid waste by the light  The dark harbors regrets  Errors of the light  The light blinds us.    We are unreal  Our lives in the dark  A truer reflection of self  When the shine is gone  What becomes of our faces? A true smile or a sincere tear?…

Hearts the Bind

Smiles and laughter of friends are ever jollyBinds our hearts we live as one Innocent pure with truest intentions We long for that day that never ends. Under the shadows of love and kinship. We share our needs; we have what we want.   The clouds of despair rolls along, We shelter in unwavering hearts….

Folly of Youth, Cumpuction of Old.  

Being young is intoxicating Our wisdom misleading Our hopes, high as the moon Our love laced with poison of lust, hope and facade of happy.  Never seeing beyond our current  Futures ruined by emotions Rationale unexists Constantly running races with no umpires  Our strength our weakness Our wisdom, untested and impatient Age humbles us. Takes from…

The Burden of Guilt

  Life snuffed out from an earthly vessel A being no different than I, lifeless I was there, I saw his last gasps I was a tool, I broke this vessel, his soul seeped out, his content gashed His greater glory never to be achieved If ever he had that in store Maybe his story…

How do you feel?

Words sometimes are few and far between. It gets harder to speak when there is less to say. You may think it is obvious, Till you ask a depressed soul ” how do u feel?” His mind wonders as he picks up his disappointments from different realms His hopes and dreams all dashed all too…

Beneath the Veil

(Image- Bayero University, Kano, Nigeria.)     Beneath this veil, my very own fusty corner A dark place, quiet and eerie. My escape, I withdraw from prying eyes I sit in my corner, I despise them from afar, Their judgmental stare, I will give them no satisfaction They shall not gawk upon me and see….

Senseless Devotion

    A senseless devotion, a pure fantasy, was delivered by your love, was a hopeless wanderer. Suddenly living with purpose, my belief renewed. My reason, my love my life   Like the summer sun, in a winter’s cold. She rescued me from my misery From a life alone and cold Her touch was warmth…

Kids of the night

I met a child, armed with a bright smile I stopped and stared as his face lit mine, He held out a bowl and I put something in All of a sudden his peers rushed in.. Hungry and weary, dirty and broken With their bowls they roam the streets, their eyes sunken Swarm foreigners for…

Blurred Lines

  When does loyalty become folly and wrong become right? When does self-restraint become cowardice and enduring pain become strength? When does forward become backwards and going up just as bad as going down? When does love turn to hate and passion breed death?   Blurred lines, mixed boundaries No real laws, no real position…

Why children cry.

  Beaten, battered, afflicted and abused. Today a child has to strive just like you Lost its innocence, street smart and savvy You’ve got more to fear from a child older than two. Defiled by the one trust has been entrusted. Clothes torn, confused about what they had done wrong Ravished off their dignity and…
