LOVE

It’s too late
It’s too late
It’s too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate
All bitterness I threw out of the gate
All God’s blessings I appropriate
For the love He showed on the cross I appreciate
It’s too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate

The love of God is shed abroad in my heart
I have a happy heart
I’m yet to see a person I hate
‘Cos it’s too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate

Even when they express and don’t hide their hate
I don’t repay evil for evil, I don’t hate
‘Cos I’ve got a relationship with God, which is intimate
So no matter what anyone does I can’t hate
For its too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate

God’s love for me is so great
He loved me even when I was an ingrate
For my sins with His son’s life He paid
So in the same way, I went on my knees and prayed
For enemies who show so much hate
‘Cos it’s too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate

My love
Is no human love
It is love from above
That’s why I love the way I love
For its too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate

I walk in love
For God is love
And He lives in me
So I’ve got love in me
It’s too late for me to hate
On love’s highway I navigate.

 

Valentine

 

 

 

a-table-for-two

Today is called valentine
Baby shall we wine and dine
Thanks a zillion for accepting to be mine
When describing you, I’m never short of lines
Being with you is never a waste of time
You are the reason my face shines
When I’m with you I’m free, I can cry if wanna cry
I can freely express my emotions, I’m not shy
I tell you nothing but the truth, I can’t lie
These aren’t just my favorite lines
And I’m not just saying this ‘cos its valentine
These are what I call my heart lines
Sorry waiter, I didn’t mean to confuse you
By ordering a table for two
It’s only because she’s still imaginary
But until she comes into reality
I will always write lines for her
Cherish her, love her
Respect her
I’ll be prayerfully waiting for her

Happy Valentine!

Beings

Life isn’t basic black and white

Not as simple as wrong and right

Life, like poetry is deep

Deep light and dark

There’re forces behind what we see

All you observe isn’t all there is

There’re influences in secret places

Who happy or sad our faces

Who determine events and occurrences

These powers are in constant opposition

We make choices, they decide our destination

Daily they fight for our attention

We are the hub of their operation

These spirits of the air

Have existed for years

They attend to

What we say

They see what we do

They know who we are

We are sturdier than they are

But they persuade us

They can’t force us

We are left to make the choice

We choose the voice

The voice informs us on what to do

All we do is influenced by one of the two

They constantly combat each other

We determine who rules

These forces are light and dark

Good and evil

God and the devil

There’s a realm beyond what we

See, feel, savour, whiff or hear

A realm further than our senses

Life isn’t plain black and white

Life is ocean deep!!

 

Street

From the loudest noise of stomach rumblings
Producing sound like the African drums
To surviving the heat of each day
Life feels like the Sahara

 

Money is hard to find for someone like me
I’m nobody, no one will fight for me
The stereotypical eye has damaged my reputation
Down they look on my presentation

 

This mouth of mine shall get fed
Even if it equals my life end
I’ll die trying than do without
Animal like instinct, that’s what I’m about

 

This isn’t the future I foresaw
But my craving has deprived me of my judgement
Plus I’m found amongst the wrong company
I’m so unfit, who shall fix me

 

I can’t afford to go to bed empty bellied
I woke up this early
Searching for a prey
Even if I’ve got to steal, I must eat
 

My victim; a qualified woman
In traffic, answering a ring
Without thinking
I snatched, I ran

 

Out of the woods, came a great host
I suddenly became a public’s punching bag
My life flashed before me, I may not see tomorrow
Thinking of Mamma, I’ve brought her too much sorrow

 

Locked up
At least I was saved from the civilian army
And tonight, my belly won’t be empty
Plus I’ll see tomorrow.
