Words In The Wind…

Through out and ins, the earth spins according to the rhythm of the heartbeats of new offsprings
As Church hymns and praise offerings are given to the wind by the lips of the labouring mothers that suffered to bring them in
All accompanied by the notes from the strokes of Seraphs on their harp strings, ascending into The Realm of The Eternal KING…….
……..I was birthed on the first of June
My face was saved from the scorch of the sun and kissed by the moon
As we wake from the womb, the next resting place is the tomb
Like flowers that bloom in the morn, before we’re even born some others are gone and never make till noon
This is why the verse of death’s unsung song is haunting
One many a son will one day sing for many a reason
As Church bells ring in unison to take toll for many a soul through many a season…..

….Serve GOD while you can because the reality of eternity waits for every man…

  1. Nice idea but it could be better structured…

  2. @innoalifa, thanks for commenting. I actually had a problem with the structure myself….that goes for the other poem I posted too. I just wanted to put something up, and I didn’t really want to go through the stress of making frequent corrections on either one of them, so I just tweaked them up a little before they were put up,and pretty much left them like that. Thanks again.

    1. @six, that’s understandable but you ought to spend some time building your craft… you could check out this poem of mine – http://www.naijastories.com/2014/03/elove-poetry-peeling-back-the-mask/ Thanks!

  3. Yeah, I agree. You should consider writing in verses.

    1. Noted @funpen, thanks for commenting.

  4. I like the flow anyhow.

    1. Thanks a lot @kaycee, I appreciate it.

    I quite like this poem. It is really beautiful (except of course the issue of the stanzas). And it is very true.

    1. Thanks for stopping by @Rachel_Williams, I’ll try taking care of the stanza ish in the next post, by GOD’S Grace.

  6. You should work on your rhythym.

    1. Yes sir…thanks for commenting @mcsnol.

    @six, you’ve gone religious on me? Lol. Kidding. It works well for your purposes – which I take as christian exhortation. Compared to your other works though, on aesthetics and pure beauty, it’s a dwarf amidst great giants. You did okay here, though. Still a fan of you sha…maybe i’ll do a faith-related piece on here. Will tag you on it. Keep the pen flowing, compadre!!

  8. Thank GOD I’m not the first to say it…people would’ve interpreted it as undue modesty on my part. I didn’t really feel this one, but I was like,’whatever, I’m still posting it’…y’know………….last last sha, na you still be my oga. I’m eagerly waiting for your next post man…more ink to your pen.
