I SEE HIS STAR

I See His Star

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [I See His Star]

Before his annunciation
Harked heralds
Of sleepy cherubs
We recite the idlib
Muttering faith
In the triune

Before the declaration
Of the mystery of faith
His August visit
And April exit
We chew the chaplet
Of his sorrowful passion

I see his star
Stationed afar
In the east
Illuminating our paths
In the abyss of doom
Stretching forth hope
In betrayed…

THE PAINTER’S BRUSH

The Painter's Brush

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [The Painter’s Brush]

I perceive the beginning of creation
I taste the savour of his extreme wisdom
I see the brain behind the painting brush
Stroking a vivid picture upon my visage

I saw the hands that sculpted the earth
Casting clay upon galaxies – formless and void
I heard the voice of still waters
That forms the solar system from the deepest darkness

I saw the…

LUST http://wp.me/s1Hp6G-lust

Lust

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Lust]

I wonder how long you awful sin
Shall share with me this little heart
And make me, kingdom race be lost
By flooding lust through my vein

I should but say man has vast earth,
Which you and your seeds breed
Descending from, old, youth, and birth
And besides, you do in my heart feed

O sweet dreadful sin!
You attend me with a glance of porn
When you’re sure, I…

Nne-Oma

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Nne-Oma]

She who saw hell in those nine months
She who became friends with the doctors
She who ate and drank for two
She who heard my worries in her womb

Nne-Oma

She who gave up her curvy shape for me
She who inserted oxygen in my wind pipe
She who lost blood for me
She in whose nipple I plucked and sucked

Nne-Oma

*’Nne-Oma’ – My Good Mother

TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY

The gentleness of the morning, The freshness of its breath, It’s aura so refreshing and reassuring,

To You Mothers

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [To You Mothers]

To you dripping breasts
And nursing palms
In whose thighs we sat
For you, I prayed for

And to you laboured souls
Who toiled and starved
That we might not hunger taste
For you, my loving heart prays for

To you brave hearts
Who would in just stood
That we might be punished
For you, I never stoppped praying for

And to you selfless souls
Who wombed the…

IS THIS MY DESTINY?

Is This My Destiny

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Is This My Destiny?]

Must I in this generation and day be born?
Must these people my parents and family be?
Must I be of this tribe, this race, this religion?
Is this my destiny?
Must I this path take?
Must I these people meet?
Must these people my friends be?
Must I this relationship keep?
Is this my destiny?

Must I these mistakes make?
Must I these feats achieve?

MY TIME WILL COME

My Time Will Come

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [My Time Will Come]

The bright lights
The cameras flashing
The mic in front of me
Me dressed in fancy fashion

The stage couldn’t be bigger
Millions of people expectant
I go live in a few seconds
This time no ants in my pants

But all that’s my imagination
At least that’s what I’ll call it now
I neither know about “where and when”
Nor do I know about “why and how”

I…
