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.

Sex With You (The Raconteur)

I can't possibly deny the fact that, Sex with you, Is the best I've had thus far. Haven't had much of it these days, Switched priorities! I Seldom reminisce about some naughty moments of you and your fuck me face, Maybe this is the only way I can keep you running through my mind on a canal loop.
I can't arguably deny that you were ideal enough to kickstart things with, But a peek over your shoulders and I see your dirts. And when we needed ironing issues out with a million things to say, We then become loud in silence and leave it up to the sex to resolve it all. At least it did resolve things until the same issues came up.
I can't arguably deny that I was naive with my decision making and let a couple of words from other people get to my head. The only thing that changed about me is change, And looking back on those days, I'd probably make a different decision right now, I guess I've really killed some part of the boy I once familiarized myself with, To a benign man who h…

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, …

The Girl At The Olympics (The Raconteur)

This is the reaction after the thing, This is the other side of me you never got to see, This is me after you, This is me without you, This is for the youthful mind to understand the difference between the future and the present.
You know I'll be the first to be proud of you after your fam, You know you'll be no less than the girl at the Olympics, You know you'll never know how proud of you I was, when I heard that, You know these days I'm more or less your Stan. You know when I heard of this,  I just wanted to wrap you so tight in the circle of my arms, with you listening to rhythm of my joyful heart. I remember how you spoke about events like this. You know this piece isn't one to make your heart beat in calmness or boost your confidence,  Oh girl, you thought wrong.
Bittersweet, You know you'll always have a soft spot in my heart but not as soft as it used to be, You know you'll be in my thoughts but not as deep as before, You know I'll one way or another try to know …
