Haven’t We All! - Poem by Abdullah Musa

Haven’t we all waned
Milked our mother and soothe starve

Haven’t we all witnessed the sun drift away
And usher in the moon
What men, but
Oscillatory fate

Haven’t we all with baby steps passed through hilly yesterday to this age

Haven’t we all landed in the port of happiness
and for once smelt heaven, because end is the
beginning of our journey

Haven’t we all
In the voyage of sleep
On the wing of the world roved in heaven

Haven’t we all been lured by worldly vamps
slipped into the vault of sadness, shrouded by
pain and hope cob-webbed, then come calming
words and patience, and
Our evaporated hope ventilated

Haven’t we all got stainless heart, and then was
rusted by illusive diamond because we disco in discomfort
Haven’t we all.

    A piece with fine expression of an insight that suggest a question asking man if at all he ever learns from nature and life. (Report) Reply
