Life Poem by Olayinka Faderera Olayiwola

Life



Once you are still alive
you can always strive
Even when it seems you can no longer cope;
life will still offer at least a streak of hope.
Life is the reason for our existence
the strength behind our resistance.
Life is a blossoming flower
the propeller of every hour.
Life is the breath of mother nature;
an energy in every creature.
Life is the joy that ends all sorrow
the uncertain hope of tomorrow.

Life is a priceless jewel,
may it stay and in me dwell.
So I may, like a Porter will, with clay
mold myself a perfect day.
Then when today is gone
after my life's work is done.
May life grant me a befitting rest;
sweet and reliable like mother's breast.
