Vanity - Poem by Ivan Chizurum Ezeigbo

Maternal mothers rapport even when in distress
Connected hopes even in blizzards
Temporary strong hopes even in a bleak future
Does not answer the question
Women in men's eye
Money meant for the living
Men want alot
Not okay with just one colourful bead
So do women
Party wonders; an idea for an event
Fame and pride
Life is well for some others
But what you think about yourself
Is what matters
Why is it that in all you have,
You see vanity
Insatiable cravings and I'm not okay yet
I want to possess and I want more
In vain do man toil under the sun
In vain; in all vanity and vexation
Deprivation and indulgence
Wickedness and kindness
Hardwork and laziness
Sadness and joy
Displeasure and happiness
Privacy and popularity
Mediocre and celebrity
I've done all these and I've found
That whatsoever happens in life
All is vanity
and no one is ever happy to the fullest
So far we are on earth
Under the heavens
And we hope
For the fullest
In the lasting abode
