Treasure Island

Benjamin Wiche

(12/02/1986 / Port Harcourt)

One life


It's the only life i've got, the only one i can live,
it's got no duplicate, so i have to dedicate, my
time to doing right, holding christ tight, making
sure my garment remains white, shining so bright
like sunlight, higher i aim to soar, not considering
things that makes me dull as i answer my call,
never allowing the flesh to rob me of my reward,
making sure my heart is never empty to avoid
anything tempting, living peaceably with all men,
making people laugh cus it's a tranquilizer with
no side effect, burning no bridge cus i might
need them later to cross, following the right path
never to depart, knowing that life is so hard to
build but easy to destroy...

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
