I Have Watched The World - Poem by john chizoba vincent


I have sit here and watched the whole world
Like the king of israel, solomon
I came to realised that life does not worth living
Rather it calls for enjoyment; eat, drink and merry
Nothing more than that in this phase of our life
Man today, dust tomorrow

I have watched the whole world
From the shinning heaven to the black earth
Nothing is ever new under the sun
All have existed before my forebears
Even as I write, they are all vanity
Man today, dust tomorrow

Being wise and yet foolish is the world
No one has it all but foolishness and stupidity
Govern mankind under the sound and air of the earth
Man die, plant feed on man, plants kill man
Man kills plant and ant eat man, man eats ant
All is vanity and beyond comprehension

The possession we boast of are evil
Evil to the eyes of our maker yet man
Craves for the madness, madness over
Their possessions which is not theirs
Insanity in the mind brings the madness on earth
I have watched the whole world and nothing is worth
Dying and craving for better than eat and drink

Listen! You men that craves for your hands
Soon you shall loose it including your head
Then the ant shall feast body that had
Since been decorated, cramed and painted with
So many frangrances which are evil

Take heed that you don't get deceived
By the fresh air of women in the street
They are evil to man of the earth
Take heed man, so thou fall not like Adam
For it was woman who made the world evil
Eve test of the apple had caused the downfall
Of human race, woman, once the sacred giver of life
Was now the enemy

Beware of the madness of the earth
They are vanity unto the eyes of our maker
I have seen the whole world and see man is sand
The ultimate goal is you trust God and be true to
Yourself, replace your excuses with reasons and everything will become clear and know everything
You can about your doing

Man is nothing under the sun of the earth
But answerable to his maker on the judgemen day
Who are thou then to fight and boast of your possession?
Take heed that you fall not and cry on your foolishness.
