Blown Away

Poem By Temitayo Ankra

I was blown away, i couldnt stand the wave
as soft as it came yet stronger than a quake
it shattered every thing that came its way
i tried to hold on but i couldnt bear the pressure
i was hoping to watch the effect it would leave
but all i could do was to hide from its rage
i was broken like clay over-baked in a furnace
all i could do was watch in awe the anger of a raging storm
i could make a move, i was blown away.

I flash back way before your rage came, you were so amazing,
your stillness and gentleness was nothing to be compared
i thought i fell into an ocean i had always known
and that it could never go wrong.
you made me believe peaches could never go sour
you were my teacher; i smiled at everthing you thaught even if i was bored
You were my eight wonder of the world
not until you came that day with you raging words
just like in the movies, i was blown away.

In Memories Of.......

i sit at the roof top with a piece of paper and pen thinking of what to write
but the only thing i think about is the memories of you
so dear were you to me, i can never forget all we shared

Life Is A Journey

life they say, is the essence of living
living they say, is the essence of life
life thus, is a journey, that we live through
in the journeys we make, we are faced by the reality of brute


Sometimes wish that I could be alone
really alone, where neither friends nor foes would be close
just me and the air I breathe, a pen and paper, Searching for the right words to write how I feel
to ponder and fathom what life has in stalk for me, staring into space I begin the journey like a wheel

Coup D'Etate

A loud bang woke me
although with my blurry eyes, the bright light I could see
it sounded like firer works in December,
but it was only June if could remember
