Keep The Family Close.



Sometimes it takes death to occur before we realise we should keep the family close,
As a matter of fact, keep the family much closer.
Death is only a reminder it would be us someday, hence our work here is limited.
Breathe taking away in what seems like a moment,
Not of silence but of agony.

When one of your aunts that genuinely loved you as a son dies,
Though I was distant, still was a relation that assumed his role.
How do you console your cousins to the thought they'll never see their mum?
How do you tell your dad to pull himself together over the loss of his sister?
I guess you'd probably live with the guilt of holding a childish grudge against her,
But knowing you so well,
I'm sure you'd barely flinch at that thought.
When bitterness is soaked in thy heart,
The sweet things of life become far fetched.
Out of the heart, the mouth speaks.

And though life's innocence was taken away even before you knew what it meant,
By someone deemed to be a superhero,
But all villains don't wear capes neither do they hide behind a mask,
But usually, have a smile on their faces like the Joker.
Maybe that's why I can never take you serious no more.

Forgiveness is an integral part of life,
It's written in the Holy Book.
It takes the mercy of The Lord for such act to be done.
The day a child realises that all adult are imperfect, He becomes an adolescent;
The day he forgives them, He becomes an adult;
The day he forgives himself, He becomes wise.

And I know someday my time here would be done,
Because what's life if there was no death?
Someone has to die to turn the prince into a king.
I pray to The Lord, His bosom will be my resting place,
I pray to The Lord, I live out my dreams before I transit.

I pray to The Lord I die with memories and zero regrets.

1AM

It's 1AM, As I think back 5 hours ago, Watching grown folks indulge in the idea of marriage. Such a beautiful thing when its true essence is given, However the case, The reverse isn't the same.
I felt like a bird on a mountain top, Looking down with a vision of that of an eagle trying to see what I can get from it. I listened as they rambled about adult jokes.
A soothsayer wasn't needed as the drift in class could be told. The song on the radio is sung along by a wife, With lyrics that seem to shred fragments of the heart. A beautiful voice but with emotion and pain littered around it. The rest said their good nights to their spouse over the phone.
Standing over on my balcony as the clock is 17 minutes away from hitting 1AM, Lonely as hell, But somehow I find confidence and comfort when I seldom let my thoughts run loose, Days when they are controlled, I seem to run low on the double C. My heart seems like an uncaged beast, But my soul is angelic. I hate when this shit happens.

The Ultimate Gemini

Finally here, finally here, I have my Westbrook's face, Finally here. All-time high, My cocky pride. A star but in disguise as the moon.
They say men don't cry, But will I be forgiven for shedding tears in my 5 seconds comfort zone? Just as the clouds pass and fade away, So does emotions, So it's best emotions don't dictate us.
No pun intended, I've had dreams of being celebrated, Say a wish for my celebration, Say a prayer for the manifestation of my revelation. When love doesn't make you better, it makes you bitter, So it's safe when one uses emotions as drive to their destination.
Nothing can stop me except if God ordains, I've heard a lot of talking but it's mundane, To the spectators, spectating what could be of me, literally. Typical humans!
And I wouldn’t expect you to stick to the butt hole, That's some disgusting shit when you can have a couple inches, And if that isn’t enough for ya, I got well over 7 inches for ya, Now that’s a mouth full. keep your mouth cont…

Future Daughter (The Raconteur)

I heard Bruce Willis say; "God gives us children so we can have roses in December". But I know with you, he'll give me a garden full. That's a bounty for the bountiful,
From a birds eye view, I'll watch you grow into a Wonder Woman, One that knows how to mend a broken heart but often times take charge of situations. I'll groom you up into an African woman, You'll have a strange name that holds earthly meanings of your root, your culture and tribe. When people laugh at your own, Sing cheers of Hallelujah because they only mock the continuity of life.
I'll have men chase unicorns then feel butterflies in their stomach,  Before they can even come close to tasting your sweetness, sweetness. Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, I have a sense of eunoia writing this because I know you hold an allure, I'll breed you into Psalm 31,  So virtuousness will be the order of your day. I know you'll be a logophile, I pray you don't become an eccedentesiast, Whenever you feel down, …
