Adaeze Ubawike

(Bronx, New York)

Life


The most beautiful thing in the world is life;
some men think that it is their wife. Life is so delicate and soft
it seems like its going aloft. It passes by
while people did and cry. Some people have no shelter for which to stay
So they stay in the cold for the entire day. Life is like zest
for people who do their very best. For the homeless and poor
life is a bore. Life is waiting for you to explore
all you have to do is go out the door. There's no time to lose,
not even for a snooze, Enjoy your life,
don't end it with a knife. Keep a strong hold
and get old.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
