The Play Poem by Jubril Balogun

Here I lay
Shedding the stress born of day
Hoping my eyes'd stray away
All the way, down the slumber lane
Hence I lay, lost in the moon embrace.

The day
An inevitable journey to destiny's lay
The road be thorned, scarred all the way
All day, borne in sun scorching play
Pores cried, wearied tears broke away
Replenished earth, thereby, danced in praise
'Man shall by sweat feed his fate'

All the way, the heat sank, all away
Drowned in horizons beyond our gaze
Calmness hence bathes the face
Far away, the night in hurried pace
Mind at valley, the heart beats a new phase
Gone therefore be the daily play
The night comes bearing a soothing play.

Awhile lays the day in wait
The night soon will wane away
Then the sun with the day shall awake
Adorning yet once again
The stage with his arduous play
A scorching play, all the way
'Till the night seizes the stage.
