Life - Poem by Ibrahim Enitan Eniola Olubiyi

LIfe is short
Like a vapour,
It is here now
The next it's vanished
Never to beheld again!

Life is beautiful
As magnificent as the pea cock
Is in its beauty,
Life's quite surpasses it
Behold the birthing of every morning,
The sensational rising of the sun,
The momentary yet phenomenal out pouring of radiance by the sun,
The unparalleled unwinding art of the sun at sun set,
The dexterity of the moon at taking over from the former
With the intent of governing the night,
The relentless uproar of the sea wave
The turbulence of the ocean,
The gathering of dark clouds,
Announcing that heaven is set to let loose,
The characteristic ear blocking sound of thunder,
Accompanying the glorious lightening,
The beautiful ways of the sons of Adam with the daughters of Eve,
The mystery of conception,
The wonder of incubation of foetus in the womb,
The pains and joys associated with birth,
The characteristics uproar, sorrow at death age regardless,
The strong urge in men for immortality,
I'm short of words,
Life is beautiful,

Life is worth living,
Its challenges,
Its uncertainties,
Betrayals from foes and friends,
Disappointment when hope is so high,
Destitutions and indigences,
Sicknesses and diseases,
Disasters and despair,
Fears and Frivolity,
Perils and pestilence,
Pains and passion,
All these, and much more
Life still is worth a living,
Suicide is not an option,
Retreating is not acceptable,
Quitting is an abomination,
Complains are forbidden,
But for the angels,
Ones we have meet,
Ones we yet to,
The seen, the unseen,
The love that swells within my heart,
The ecstasy of falling in love with the right person,
The passion and beauty of staying in love,
The beautiful face I wake up to see every day,
The voices of my beautiful angels,
The shouts of my brats,
The screaming voice of my baby to curb the excesses of my angels,
For these and many more,
Life is still worth a living

What is life to you?
What you are going through not withStanding,
Life is short, beautiful, worth living
Disengage from self pity,
A candidate of pity,
You are not!
Cease enduring life!
Enjoying life...



Life is beautiful!

    Life is nothing but a gift from God and it should be spent worshipping Him. I liked the way you have used the metaphors carefully to enhance the effect of the poem. Great imagery. Fine poetics. A fine 10. Kindly read and rate my poem 'A busy street' on page 1. (Report)Reply
