Poem By Godwin Okpeh

Oh Death
Faceless criminal
Hidden like a shadow in the night
Immune to bullets and arrows
Assaulting both presidents and
Certain for all human
Without season, without time.

Oh Death
A world of no return
Variety of causes, yet none is specific
A thief that steals continously
From the rich as well as the poor
Heartless monster of pains
That spares no one no! even a child.

Oh Death
The cure for all diseases
But yet has no cure
Beyond the power of medicine
Above the prowess of modern machine
An endless path of loneliness
Forever leading to an uncertain destination.

The Mirror

With great artistic skill
I sketch yet require no bill
Whether you're in motion or stay still
My accuracy you cannot predict.


With whom I shared my sorrows and joys
From when I was young and play with toys
Who had shown me nothing but love and care
And when In the cab help me pay my fare

I Know Women

I know women
When they get your trust
And know that it's them you love
They turn their back on you
