Life Must Go On - Poem by Jokpeme Joseph Omode
No matter the stance, no matter the deeds
No matter the done; life must go on, must go on
No matter the pains, no matter the tears and sorrows of life;
Life must go on.
No matter the trials, no matter the tribulation and destruction;
Life must go on.
Enjoyment and Suffering alike comes from life;
It must go on.
Life is kind, life is wicked and life is full of choices and hope
But still, it must go on.
Life is full of ups and down and life is full of torturing sorrow
And predicaments and difficulties but it must go on.
Life has dragged us to distress;
And at times it can make us gain in joy and loss in sorrow
But it must surely go on.
Do not let its filthy pores touch you
And enjoy in the mist of it
We must be dreaming but it is going on as you sail on it.
Let your boat on the better side hence you sank
Into the part of cruelty.
Life is ripe; beware of its harshness
But adjust it, enjoy it, feel it and cherish it;
No matter the stance, no matter the deeds, no matter the done;
No matter the difficulties and troubles and maybe life must be boiling and cooking but it must go on.
That is life
