Phases Of Life - Poem by john chizoba vincent


Some are poor and needy with nothing to eat
They are dregs of the society, ordinary people
They are naked all day long day dreaming
Their mouths speak of pains and agony.
Some have no money, children, wife and husband
In all, they have hope and joy for better days
This is a phase of life so common in the society
Life becomes their employer with their wages unpaid

Some have the money but are restless
Sickness is always at their doors smiling
Always knocking to pull them down
They are called the middle class people
They toll to belong to the top but can not
Life journey becomes a tale of sorrow and agony
Setback drives their dreams away
With the wind praising their hostility
This is a phase of life which is also common
Why would life pay us partially, favouring
others and pushing others to the wall?

Some have many to eat and drink
With nothing to bother them about life
Their mind works for them with hardwork
All their time were invested in thinking
They were awake whilst others sleep,
They are called the rich and wealthy people
Patience speaks them motherly
Determination wing their chariots of hope
This phase is not easy to come by
