A Woman On Fire

Poem By Ubong Essien

A Woman on Fire

I'm a woman on fire
Do you want to see me burn
It burns in me
Deep within my soul
Right beneath my feet
All around it burns
I am a woman
A woman on fire

In the pool of comfort
On the planes of paradise
In the palaces and royal courts
On my queenly seat
I am still on fire
I am a woman
Thousands smile a moment
Courageous and daring
My face like a flint
A sombre rock that need not cry
Deep within it burns
Even at the face of comfort
I am a woman on fire

The crown on my head
The fire in my soul
Proudly being a woman
Who knows what's being a woman
Who knows a woman
A woman on fire

My dearly beloved
My Angel
When you wake in the morning
Rise like the sun on the horizon

This Cup Of Life

Add me up in the cup,
Let me be drown even for ages.
I want to drink it to my fill.
And till I thirst no more,

Love conceived
Love birthed
Love kept
Love kills

The Ugliest Picture

O my tears
All alone
My soul had the sword pierced
I took it upon my very self

The More That You Can Do

Sometimes
We just don't know
Until we know
Or just be told
