The Natural Life - Poem by AMADU KAMARA

Life is full of realities that remain unchanged
Especially when we are myopic with the effect of it changes.
The imperfection in humanity is the mother of our mistakes and errors
Even when we try to shape ourselves into acceptable beings,
Society has always been the question of our deeds.

A man accepting the natural happenings of life
Is always accepting the truth and snubbing trouble
Because he that chooses to live the simplest life
Is one who considers the lives of every human the way they are.

Our segregations are offsprings of our contrasting characters
And henceforth society will always remain divisible
Especially when we ignore the truth that we are all equal
And embrace the negative feelings of supremacy.

Change is the most constant thing in life that is
Even more constant than the northern star
And society is a brother of our changes
Whose sisters are our good and bad deeds
That makes change unchangeable.

How can we ignore love when it is natural and
How can we ignore hate when it is natural.
How can we ignore war when it is natural and
How can we ignore peace when it is natural.

Life is a probability of good and bad choice and
Even when we try to be serious in our endeavors,
Life becomes unserious by gambling with us
With it harsh and unprecedented realities.

We love to hate, that is a change.
We live to die, that is a change.
We unite to disunite, that is a change.
We laugh to cry, that is a change.

If we accept that life is one step at a time
Then maybe our worries remain questionable
Because the time of God that most awaits
Is the time we consume everyday and therefore
It is better we act fast than ever because life is too short.

The story of life's natural occurrence is unending
Especially when we haven't seen the world's ending
And there are more stories remaining untold
That even unborn generations won't end it parables.

Death is a fine judgement not because it is ugly
But it creates a panacea for the unborn generations
Especially when our good and bad deeds are preceded by them.
Life is sweet if there would have been no sin.

The world would have become a better place
If man extend kiss to his fellow man
Irrespective of race and color
So that the gospel of equality starts preaching itself.
