Victor Ekpo Poems
Encompassing clothing, beauty and style It emanates from the mind Viewed physically And is an expression of an inner beauty.
On the Lane
Walking majestically on the lanes of love I found a beauty that surpassed the sun A beauty that shone from in and out And its beauty could easily be too bright to behold.
Reflections in You
As the moon reflects the light of the sun And the mirror the light in you So do you reflect the light of life
The World Spins On
The world continues in an ellipse Revolving slower, faster and still on With the same forces acting - Pulling and pushing in like fashion

Find me a person With childhood innocence Youthful exuberance Adult enterprise
Friends, a strong shoulder they offer When awful emotions overwhelm you And tears are the best you can shed

Encompassing clothing, beauty and style
It emanates from the mind
And is an expression of an inner beauty.
Be it man or woman
Old or young
For God creating us unique
We can't but create our own version of it.
And though we create it and make it our slave
Yet it tells everyone of our thoughts without seeking our permission
Translating a message everyone well understands
Speaking of it as part of our personality.
Now, we have to be careful of what we create
Our first word for a stranger it is
Spoken so well for eyes to ...
