Life - Poem by Adedeji Ologbenla


A glimpse at the face of life
To the heart, aching to look
Life with different faces
Phases of bitter faces
That our eyes away we turn
To face not the truth of life
Though to the tongue of the men inexplicable
Deep in the intelligence of the heart
Lies the truth for the deeper thinking man
That everything is all and nothing
Pinch of dust in the whirlwind
Held on to just to lose in the end

No greatness in the entry to life
And the unavoidable exit from life

So listen to the sounds of the birds
Hear the tunes from the lips of men
Laugh to the weary heart
Beaming with the smiles of all smiles
Hold him close as though all will end now
‘Cos life is a flower that blossom
Jus to wither away
Nothing last forever
Except the impression of you
On the sands of time
Live your life as if it could be the last
I tell you
