Treasure Island

Balogun Segun Gbenga

(7th June,1988. / Epe, Lagos.)

Come, Be Refreshed

Every now and then the voice keep calling

'Come, now; let us set matters straight between us'

'I am kind-hearted and abundant in loving-kindness'

'Listen to me and keep alive'

'Those loyal to me, I loyally treasure'

Come, the Angels are calling on behalf of this voice

It is a good news to all the people

He will make your yoke lighter..

He cares and want you to succeed

No more living in dread of tommorrow

He is the giver of all good things

Look at his awe-inspiring works for convinction

The moaning and sighing hearts he calms

The confused and troubled minds he enlightens

His word is a comfort for the weak

And an insight for the meek

He tends lovingly to console the grieved

Hope he gives to the depressed

His voice is calling out day and night

Come, take life water free

Come, be refreshed.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
