Face To Face - Poem by George Egba

Face to face
Says the era come with me
Out of love your journey take a silent phase
Appease a moment of toil say good bye
Before your own maker face to face
Here is dawn with blinded eyes
When boring toil cease
Like a judge rest your case
Slowly the stranger cease you with ease
Present you trembling before your makers face
The time which felt like most
Had faded away non to show
Alone now you stand lonely at thy post
Your envious pride now the flame that bows
Hence today your maker face to face
Like the whole world did pass on with you
In your narrow bed truly yours
Err the wayward world move on with you
Too late to cry before an angry fathers face
Guide up your loins
Up down the valleys dark
Watch no more now you shall be join
By a strange star to give you spark
Across twilight before fathers face
Youth is pleasure
At twenty five when they are full
But now all did pass with leisure
All that seem tall
Is the thrown before fathers face
