It Takes Two…!

 

Two are better than one

‘Cos two makes loneliness a stranger

Two can halve the troubles

‘Cos two makes the burden easier

two can walk better together

and neither can stand alone

for every pleasure doubles

and everywhere is home

Two can walk on together

through strife and pain

through laughter and bliss

our light will shine through the darkness  

our laughter will resonate every morning

Two can weather all weathers

through every day and every night.

Peace and Love!

I Arise…!

 

From the darkness of the night

I awoke

To the light of a promising day

Armed with selfless thoughts

With empowering cravings

To rise above yesterday’s failures

The ashes of past glories

The lies of illusions and hallucinations

Today is the new truth

I arise

To carve a new reality

And drift away from the oblivious lies of past confessions

That ended in disasters

Today, I awoke and I arise

To take a leap into life

To crush the confessions I make in silence

To deflate the egos of limiting beliefs

From the darkness of the previous night

I awoke

To spring forth and blossom

Peace and Love!

There Are No Guarantees!

 

The TRUTH is:

LIFE can be messy.

And LOVE can be messy.

Life and Love can mess you up.

There are no guarantees!

You never know where the road leads. You might have great plans for the future. You might have great plans for your life. You might have great plans for your love life, your relationship and your marriage.

But no matter the plans to make life AWEmazing and Wonderful and Loving, you can’t change what the future holds or what lies ahead.

No. You. Can’t.

Hard as you try, you can’t prevent the unexpected surprises that tug at humanity.

And life ends abruptly.

And the spark in love dims and fades unceremoniously.

Life and love cease, ends, at the slightest…provocation. At the slightest mistake.

We don’t know what the future has in store for us, even after trying everything humanly possible to have a good future.

Only God can accurately tell what the future holds for us.

So what goes?

Simple.

Just live in the moment.

Bask in the euphoria of the moment and the times you have to spend with your family and loved ones.

Make it memorable.

Make it interesting.

Make it significant.

Make it unforgettable.

Make it endearing.

Make it passionate.

Make it a worthy experience for everyone.

Why not create quality time this weekend and spend the nights singing lullabies to your kids, playing hide and seek with them and just jumping and running all over the house in sheer delight.

Why not rekindle the spark of love with him/her, kissing, holding hands, looking at each other’s eyes, whispering sweet nothings to the ears of your partner, and just lounging in pure bliss and ecstasy, singing the music of love as you dance in harmony into the dark night.

Live.

Love.

That is Life.

 

Happy weekend, Everyone. 

 

 

Peace and Love!

The Seed Of Love

 

Love, the star that lights up in darkness

Love, the language spoken without words uttered

Love, the compass that leads us so we don’t get “lust”

Love, the song we sing and watch our heart dance to

Love, the antidote to the poison that triggers hate

Love, the one word that can’t be defined when truly felt

Love, the music of the heart

To All Poetry Enthusiasts!

 

I don’t joke with people who have a taste for poetry. To all the poetry enthusiasts, I’d say, keep writing ‘cos the world will keep reading too.

I admire the fact that passionate feelings can be expressed through imaginative words in a creative aesthetic style and rhythm.

Unfortunately, Poetry is not accorded the recognition it deserves, especially in African literature. It’s not a genre of literature that is hugely appreciated no doubt, and this can be attributed to its distinctive language. However, with more poets (Africans) rising up, this conception might change in the near future.

So, today, let me honour the Masters of this distinctive art the world over, Poets, who craft words, mould them, weave them together, adding rhythmic beauty to these letters to create a superb gripping effect. 🙂

To all the poets who add special intensity and beauty to letters as they invoke emotions into their poetry –  SALUTE.

Kudos to you all.

It’s Your DAY.

The world celebrates you today! 🙂

In addition, we may not all write poetry in letters. But some of you do, with your gorgeous outlook, and with the extension of your hands of generosity, towards humanity.  🙂

Here’s a big shout out to all the great poets, dead and alive.  You all are the great minds that add beauty and colour to our world.

Cheers. 🙏😍

Happy World Poetry Day! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Peace and Love!
