Paradise Lost; Paradise Regained. - Poem by ADEWUMI JOSHUA

Man continues to wield power
Over people
At their own peril.
Since paradise lost,
Their plot has been in pieces
His eyes, He turned away from us
And the barricade was lifted.
Peace, they pursue with horses;
Security was the reason they sit.
Whenever they gather in the tower of unity,
The Babel- spirit keep descending.

We were made equal,
But we have never been equal.
And whenever we come near to
Or become equal,
The four winds let loosed.

Oh! In paradise,
They were only two
And without worry too.
God and human,
Human and beast.
And there was peace
And security too.
But one stretched to be like the other,
And now he knows good and bad.
And that he may not come to be equal,
He was deserted:
Paradise Lost.

We know we have power,
But power is not for us.
For if power will stand with us
Then peace, away, will stand from us.
So, put power to its place:
Paradise regained.
