JOSEPH ABUTU


Partner With My Soul


Simple soul,
Servant of my destiny;
Watch my ways unfold
Like the curtains of royalty.

While we were together
In the presence of a greater;
Our ascent was same
In the newness we proclaim.

Lust besieged my world
And claimed my dream;
Silent when am called
But sharp like a sun beam.

Threaded the path of lies
Took the torture to my feet;
With burns and ties
Buffeting my face in the heat.

Though I was blind
Yet I sought home;
Salvation I shall find
Then shall I cease to roam.

It’s a mystery;
The future fairly divides itself-
Among us.
It’s a reality;
How experience, out of its wealth
Has apportioned us all.
Yes everything is lost
But something is found.
