My Resting Friend
Few seconds past have I not felt your presence, Few minutes gone have I realized your absence, Few hours withered, have your silence, Glowed on me, as now, I know death has taken dominance.
Like my feelings in the tide Travelling like a wind, like our emotions which is bona fide Like the voices of thunder deep in the air Have my emotions trembled, 'cause life was unfair.
As a nail to our Hearts Have you encrypted an emotional symbol, With fifty days to a celebration, We share this pain in our joyous shadow,
Dreams Of My Fathers
Dreams oh! Dreams, Littered in the shadows of our memories, A remnant of shattered hopes, From the futility of unutured past.
One More Smile
Our hearts had murmured in moments of peace, Now in our moments of violence it hauled our feelings with ease, Trenching through the mirror of penury, As it recaptures the obnoxious attitude of slavery.
Winter Of Hope.
I know the truth at which you aim How quiet you are 'cause of fear of maim Your heart filled with the thoughts of your woman's late pregnancy, For on their faces, signs of malignancy.
Just like yesterday, you slept with no pills My heart also had a rest with thee For mine was gone with no ills As everyday gone by, I look to Heaven with great plea.
Have our youths gone beserk? Has Holiness escaped from its tomb of Human race? Why does the grey's dream of glory,
Have our youths gone beserk?
Has Holiness escaped from its tomb of
Why does the grey's dream of glory,
Fade in a jiffy?
While evil rip our wisdom like a ninny,
We queue, the queue nature doth brought,
But with all no lasting edge.
