Treasure Island

Abubakar Abdulkadir

(21 March,1995 / Niger State, Nigeria)

Best To Worst


Men mostly fall from heights
Just as darkness comes from light
And like day changes to night
So do best changes to worst

Men should wonder not
Why changes take best to worst
Aren't thieves born saints?
Aren't Rapist born innocent?
Even devil was once of light
And once in the queue of whites
But now the chief of hell

Of life changes is certain
And mostly to lowlands
From mountains
And to desert
From fountain
So men should wonder not
If thier bossom friends turn foes
It' meant so to be
Always woes
From Eden to Earth
So its not new

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
