A Timely Ode - Poem by Bolami lawal
Those things i did effortlessly,
those smiles i gave without recourse,
those moments of exfoliating warmth,
rolled back in time, like a thunderbolt
and now; it all seemed of essence;
the reservoir of affection flowed to its brim
at the wake of gloom and unpleasant certainties-
The incorrigible takes on the inner strength
and ransomed the grave of truth,
as undiluted emotions
fought back the stream of tears-
The fight; the hate,
the tussle; the race,
in pursuit of happiness,
in chase of dreams,
all at its best
seemed as a waste!
Now; it mattered,
to love and be loved,
to hold and be held,
to smile and be smiled at,
to raise the weight of grief
from a brittled soul
and give a friendly squeeze
where might had failed!
Veils are lifted,
i see a flood of revelations,
things have assumed a new light
and burdens are forfeited-
am elated and profound in thought;
suddenly, intuited to life and its woes...
the epignosis of existence,
seemed even clearer;
that all things shall remain
in a state of flux!
