ContıNuum - Poem by Walter Osauwagboe


Complex thoughts
Spiraling like the curves in a spring
Musing on what was and is
And simple wishes
Of reversing time
Or at least bending moments
To fit the curves and patterns
That the mind can measure
And define history again


Independently bound
By the Root that bears us
You, me and the many
Whose tales bent our thoughts?
So like the other trees
We bowed with the wind
I only hope we bore fruits
That this garden may thrive
As buoyant as its Root


I was told to run as
Fast and swift as I could
In pursuit of a crown
That can’t be worn here
Applauded by fans
We never knew we had
And if I did find it
It must be placed on the floor
With the others


See how the chains relate
Every left hand embraces a right
And let no space
That it might not wane
Their intersection is common
Everyone loses to gain
Though not evident now
Eternity will reveal their bond
Cannot be bent
