If Tomorrow Never Comes
Dear mother, just now I realized that man's stay on earth is but limited
LOVE HEAVEN; HATE DEATH
More often than not; so much often than not, We talk about heaven; we imagine heaven, We pray and wish; to go to heaven, Yet funnily enough; we don't want to die,
My grandmother, she's so old has no teeth poor grandmother, once the village beauty can hardly see
A friend is a gift sometimes give you a fit, but a gift of nature and a part of your future.
What makes our lives different; Is the way we think, And the way our destinies are laid for us. Not all our thoughts are different;
To My Mother
You groomed me and loved me You cautioned me and wanted me You fed me and cared for me There's really noone like you.
Life is A Lottery
Everything is a trial Even including your desires You always have to chose You don't have a choice.
To whom it may concern; Am sorry, for leaving in a hurry i hate to leave so
Why I Smile
A man came to me said he had something to say and me being me said he had the whole day
A Day Of A Month in 20-07
I asked they told me told me it is the most beautiful thing in the world told me it has the power to move mountains
Proud of Africa
I am proud and proud indeed i shall not propound cause am strongly bound, to say it loud and let it sound even as i drown and am down.

If Tomorrow Never Comes
just now I realized
that man's stay on earth
is but limited
and that our days
are but numbered
and being mortal i know not
what lies ahead tomorrow.
But if tomorrow never comes
just you remember
that you had a daughter
who despite her teenage rebellions
do tell my father
and my brother
that inspite of our differences
they were dear to my heart.
But to you my love
if tomorrow never comes
do remember those beautiful eyes of mine
that once mirrored the flame of love
