Courage

Courage


Let our misfortune be a 
runing water!

Our courage borrow
a lava from the wild
Volcano even though
some of our rivers are destined to flow
after we have gone.

Fight is like lava, soul is like the wind, the ideas are rivers and death is like a diamond, when you are courageous-well expressed poem-thank you..

This humble poem of yours, somehow, has the ability to instill a rather subtle thoughtfulness in a reader. Keep writing.

Reminds me of blood diamonds, the water used in the mining, by those forced into the mining; the source of diamonds bought to the surface by past lava flows from volcanoes. Rivers flowing in generations blood forced into mining, once precious life born in love, now harvested in deaths controlling an African diamond trade. This image applies to many resources fought over on the African continent and souls like the wind are free 'far from the eyes of men'. Just one reading, nice images Enyinwa.

If we can let our soul be a wind far from the eyes of men - something to think about, thank you.
