How Would I Know - Poem by George Egba

A bond of pleasure and terror
Dear world why these three dreams error
It gives me grace a place of love and hate
Friendship quest in this shall keep a date
If all these shall pass away how would I know
O lodge of strangers lord
Of sheep and wolves on board
Love for vanities and beauty the eyes behold
Little life for slaves suffered and sold
If these is kindness how would I know
Many miles in joy many in agony and fear
Comfort for flowing tears
Treat of war promise of peace
In this we live with disbelieve on our face
If safety is sure how would I know
End of the race and reward
Sweet sweat that flows onward
From time and breath
Till the sudden sting of death
Come to us how would I know
