From Womb To Tomb - Poem by JOHN AIYELABOLA

The heart has reasons
That love doesn't understand.
Likewise the mind has a 1000 eyes
And the heart but 1
Yet the light of a whole life
Begins with a kiss.
Though a kiss is an upper preparation
To a lower invitation
That leads to a faster acceleration
But building a newer generation
Which eventually leads to a higher population
But why do men who were forced out
From d thighs of a woman
Always strives to go back.
Why? Why? But why? i asked
And i heard a voice saying
There is no place like home
When sex drives you home.
It gives u life.
It makes u feel great.
Love making becomes therapeutic
And the journey starts from the womb
but leads to the tomb.
