The world is yours, said Scar

The world is yours, said Scar

Coated choice

They try to limit one

But two is never one


Hymn the rhymes

The sky I saw

Haunting and liberating

I remember my birth


Before the placenta

The world was already living

We talked

Ambience writing


Then I needed not scribble

I dream not

I saw the crown of stars

Neither in night, or in slap

In life

Before the soul was locked


I flew

I saw all that was

I moved


Voided hate

Blank despise

Born in the midst of time

A new element, I wrote


The world is here

Though the mind seeks freedom

For now, I will live

Till the morning after


The word was flesh

And the man in red listened

  1. Uyi, I couldn’t ‘get’ this poem at all. Well done. $ß.

  2. I see the themes of life and death – I see birth.

    Scar – that’s a reference to ‘Lion King’ no?

    Everything else is blurry.

    @sibbylwhyte thanks for reading. Well it’s about life before birth, before souls are locked into senses. Thanks again

    @Seun-Odukoya spot on observation, scar is a reference to the character Tony Montana from the movie “Scarface”. Yes the picture i had on my mind was a blur.
