The 'Continuity' In 'Vanity' - Poem by uchenna nnodum

In this life of doubt and acrimony
Life of hopelessness and instability
Of want and insatiability
That i have come to stay temporarily
I have lived all my daily
I have learnt it is nothing but vanity.

Living a life of love and fantasy
Blessing shared unequally
Divides us all in inequality
Without peace and unity
Nothing but chaos and anarchy
I have learnt it is nothing but vanity.

For the continuity life has put in vanity
Makes this world an unknown entity
My stay here most unworthy
And increasingly unsteady
For what shall i say to the Almighty?
When i meet Him in the life of eternity.
