Of gushing streams and teardrops…


In the midst of the noise, I asked for clarity
Then He said “Put them away, put them all away”
Like the refiner’s fire
Until the pure gold remains…


Bold, Vocal and Free

I love how bold you’ve become
I love how vocal you are now
Free to express yourself
Willing to contribute
Without thinking what they’ll make of you
You once lived in shadows
Afraid of what people think about your opinions
You once walked quietly and circumspectly
Afraid to step on toes
But truth is like smoke
It can’t be hidden
Truth is like fire
It burns and consumes
You either burn with it
Or it burns you up…

Your Rebound

I was your rebound

The stopgap

Between your ex and your next

I was that train ride

From the place you left

To the place you’re going

I was that scenic view

The lush greenery

That kept you occupied and calmed your nerves

I was the music that played in your ears

When the sights turned dry and bare

Now we’re closer to your city

Your destination

And I watch you anticipate

I see you joyful at the coming experience

You can barely contain your excitement

Should I feel sad?

Maybe a little jealous?

I can’t fight this

So I slip away quietly…

Before the sounds of the city comes alive

If Ever I needed You… 

If Ever I needed you
To stand with me through
The pain and disappointment
A shoulder to lean on in this predicament

If ever I needed your love
The care you’ve always spoken of
If ever I needed your strength
And courage to go the length
And stand strong in spite
Of the challenges and fight

If ever I needed someone to hold
Love and cherish till we get old
Someone who brightens my world with a smile
And makes me feel it was all worthwhile
If ever I needed you…
My dear, the time is NOW!

Like Her(Not Her)

Slim like her…
Act like her
Smile like her
But you’re not her
No! And never will be

Letting Go

You were my muse
My Inspiration
You were sunshine
And bright clouds
My favorite song
And a thousand chorus

I looked in the future
You’re missing
Seems the past swallowed you up
Like Jonah and the fish

And today, I’m letting go…

Kiss The Bride

I look at her
She looks at me
We look at him…
He nods
You may now kiss the bride

Don’t Be Afraid To Cry

I Weep For My Mother…

I weep for my mother
One who had brought so many to life
Yet had to watch a couple leave
First was the one who had a hole in her heart
Then the one that refused to come home from the hospital
Emeka, most beloved of all
Chose to leave at 7
And when Dindu, the last of the warriors
Took a bow as a baby
We thanked God for the 5 men that stood

They called you Miracle
‘Cause your birth was miraculous
U survived the heavy bleeding at birth
Several hours before you came out
The doctors called you Michael
‘Cause you fought like a warrior
20 years thence,
Just a few weeks to 21
You bid this world adieu

If I knew that as I saw you sleeping
When I came home to pick a few things
That I wouldn’t see you awake again
I would have roused you from that sleep
I would have driven that sleep away

I weep for my mother
One who had seen so much pain
May God comfort you
And wipe all your tears away
