IT’S ENOUGH, DO GOOD WORKS
Many people have walked the earth
Some did it in regrets
Others left traces we can’t forget
Mention is always made of Einstein and Edison
These men had serious addictions
That burned their hearts till their extinctions.
They embraced corrections
And ignored destructive delusions
How long will we eat nepotism
And sleep with favouritism?
We condemn racism
While we set up mechanisms
That is bad
More harmful than yesterday’s flood.
We are the origin of our woes
I long for that second
When we stand on our toes
Our minds are so corrupt
Though not by default
Our abode is at fault.
It can be corrected
When our thoughts are readied to refrain
From actions that put us in disdain.
Nature was silent
So their stay in dungeon prolonged
The environment is really an awful abode
But it’s better than passers-by.
Whenever love is quenched
Hope gladly flees
We fell for men’s intention
Hence Pity was our real identity
The distance between now and tomorrow
Is very comparable to centuries.
I’m glad you had the courage
When my faith failed.
Had I opportunity to create
Never would I be slow to make you
The only beast that pursues
Prey for a due cause.
Eagles can’t take their sight off you
Because I have searched thoroughly through
Right from the very beginning
Where very few people like you
Yes like you Have overcome all miseries.
Whenever the sun’s ray speaks
He reveals that you are on the peak.
You are a unique human
Above anything birthed by a woman.
