Kingsley Egbukole Poems

I reason death in its glorious beauty
Like golden evening cloud
On a bright sunny day
...

2.

Hope
My nutrient drink
Energizing
My propelling force
...

Cry of any mother pierces the soul
Knowing her tenderness and love
Whosoever causes the flow of tears
Is worthy of incarceration.
...

The waters around me
are shallow with debris
Unappealing to my taste
...

Just like the cloud everywhere
You need not search anywhere
You need not even wait too long
To notice the village braggart
...

The soil, Black
That habours the seed
And gives it life to man
...

Dear Poet Friends

When I breathe no more
This life so vain is gone
...

First day at work
In the magical 2020
When all must be perfect
We resumed with expectations
...

Reeks of alcohol
His body, his breath alike
Shabbily dressed and unkept
With speeches slurred and unclear
...

Only by inspiration
My pen is tasked to pen
Not of contest
Neither by force
...

Met her three years back
Very quick, casual and unplanned
Little was said and no feelings shared
...

By deceit and coercion
Is the colonization first
By wilful submission
Is the colonization second
...

Early to work
Late to return
Family duties awaits to attend
I dare to write
...

As we expect you eagerly
I welcome you in advance
While on the way to come
Do purge yourself of wars
...

Sometimes I plan not to write
But ideas my head flood and form
My pen is compelled to pen and I write
...

A professor of greatness made
Ordained from birth he was
But down and down he went
In opposite motion of the vision
...

17.

A single child
And only child
is all alone
...

Ten years to have a step
Not a leap, just a step
As I stagnate on first point
All efforts unyielding it seemed
...

The day after tomorrow
Is the son of tomorrow
The grand son of today
If we adhere to hereditary genetics
...

Refrain your hand from evil
Take no joy in suffering of innocents
The wicked eat the fruit of his exploits
In full dose recompense.
...

The Best Poem Of Kingsley Egbukole

The Beauty Of Death

I reason death in its glorious beauty
Like golden evening cloud
On a bright sunny day

I think of death in its peaceful silence
Like "Otamiri" river
purling in moon-lit night

I ruminate death in its soulful rest
Devoid of dust
Like cool gentle evening breeze

I look toward death then
When the task is over
Much more toward
When satisfactorily accomplished

To wash my sticky hide of labour
In transparent river "Otamiri"
My frayed nerves calmed
In cool evening breeze

To take the deserved rest
In peaceful clouds of heaven
My portion of the Father
And Son through death.

(Saturday 14th March,1998,2.19 pm)

Just wondering why do you do a poem as part 1, part 2 ect? Why not condense them into one poem?

To everyone is a garment of diverse size

Life without pain is tasteless and without pleasure bitter (Monday 20th September,2004)

Endurance makes the strong man

Conscience is the eye that sees true self and does not lie.
