The Lonely Lady

Standard

So lonely
She sits there
Eyes not blinking
Far she travels
All in her thought

Wanted to busy
Brings out a phone
Wanted to press
Hands like no bone
Now she feels dizzy
Eyes feeling sleepy

In the mighty ocean
Trying not be drown
In her lonely thought
She has to succumb
To the power of sleep
Hoping to clear all thought
When she wakes up
In the next world

Like The Lizard?

Standard

Nodding always yes and yes
Making us confused about it life
Even when it might be feeling obsessed
It keeps giving thanks times five

Things can always be so fine
If we can imitate and do same
Maybe pretending with a wine
To feel just like a gem

The lizard accepts all situations
Giving thanks for the time had
Despite falling and hitting itself hard
Knowing permanent is not for all conditions

Memory Lane

Standard

Submitted by: Akanimo Edet.

I have seen what I can’t explain
I have heard what I can’t talk about
I travel nowhere but I was there when it happens
I try and failed countless times
But now I have started a fresh
I try to ignore all the old memories
But how can I forget my origin?
I heard myself asking this question
I pause for some moment to think
For some seconds still not an answer
I asked my wise friends but they can’t answer
I asked my elders but still no answer
I asked Google but no result match it
I feel ashame and disappointed
But I see myself laughing on the wall
Smiling in a small and big hanging paper
My failure memories still hunt my mind
Just like a hunter hunting lions
I succumb myself to nature
I lie down waiting for sleep
Without a reason this world is cruel

Ricky And Dream Kiss

Standard

His name is Ricky, known for being an angry boy.

Sleeping alone in his one small little room at the extreme of the apartment leaving the door ajar. He is currently chatting with a girl under the cool serene walkway of their college environment and the girl seeming to fall in love with him, he stretches for a kiss with his lips moving. I stood there amazed as he struggle on bed. Not wanting to let this continue as it looks scary to me, I tapped him and he gets up with a silly face to be angry with me for not allowing him have a taste of the girl’s lips.
All this made known after I received a slap from his long-short-fingered hand followed by a sorry.

Proud To Be Me

Standard

You having a white job
I’m doing a pink job
You having a glass house
With me I live with a mouse
Playing with your girlfriend
I do not even give a send
I feel proud to be me

You fixing your teeth with gold
I work all day in the sun with a mould
All that trash is to make a living
So why not keep your boosting
For those that may accept them
Maybe their food you provide them
I feel proud to be me

Leaving close to the creeks
Earning a living with the bricks
Feeling happy with what i work on
So what are ya feeling god upon
I feel proud to be me

I’m not jealous that you be
But just allow me to be
Don’t put your wealth in my eye
Cos tomorrow I will be in the sky
My name written on top magazines
Dining all day with the Kings
I feel proud to be me
