21 Days Poem by Adedolapo Olisa

21 Days

Rating: 5.0

21 days they say
Stop habits, memories
Begin a new you
But, I like the old me

21 days, and I quit at 14
My mental faculty tires
Really, retires, lays all arms
At the feet of killing love

21 days, and 7 days to go
My will caves
A volcano of the past
Swirls through my letting go

21 days, that I fail to muster
In a year, I keep choosing to draw breath
From the past
Even though life beckons like sunrise

21 days, yet I choose to sleep
Not wake, to the promise of better life
Better feels like yesterday
When love was cheap

21 days, and love, money cannot buy
It feels like love to hold on
But counsel repeatedly says otherwise
Words that heal hurt deep

21 days, and I hate it's pity
Who is that zombie
Me, alive with grace for a reason
But God has been cruel

21 days, He teaches lessons
That bind my soul to be complete in Him
But No! I liked how she completed me
Another lash, alas, the very burden that chains me

21 days, for a disciplined man
To choose discipline, to ban
Every appetite, to pan
The horizon like a new born

21 days, be a nun
Cut the umbilical cord
Sever the bond
Begin, in a new pond

Remember, even old love
enjoys new wine in old vessels
21 days, let's brew!
