An Alien Truth - Poem by Bolami lawal

Once, i came to an alien truth
Of life and love internally
Of peace and joy internally
Those things unseen
But greatly felt;
That quenched the thirst
Of a craving soul

Once, i came to an alien truth
Of death and hate internally
Of pains and grieves internally
Those things unseen
But greatly felt;
That starves the soul
Of a gleeful cheer

Once, i came to an alien truth
That in times of loss and
Increasing fears,
When hopes are smashed
And dreams are dashed; and
Great despair possessed the heart,
The inward strength could mend
The soul of it's deepest woes!

But man would crave
For wealth and fame,
Externally;
Those things we see
For a little while
That ensnare the soul
With vague desires!
