I Died Twice


I hearkened not the voice of the saint.
Repent! Repent! ! Repent! ! !
Like the voice of the roaring lion
Sounding warning of danger around the corner.

My heart sadened with blame
Even in furnace i feel so despair
My heart is fill with worms to devour
And flame of sulphur to quench the thirst.

The watchtowers shouted severally
I heeded not, nor hearkened not
Now surrounded with anguished and hopeless faces
Faces, facing eternal judgement.

I remember my time on earth
I was a mighty man on earth
Money, fame and power bowed at my feet
But with all these, i was emptied.

Clothed in my own immoralities
Suddenly i heard the sound of a warning bell
Waking up from my sleep
I realise it is a warning dream

The Gods Are Crazy

Who can know what pleases the gods?
Or who can know the minds of the gods?
Sometimes they smile at you,
And another day, they mock you.

Am A Soldier

Am a soldier
I may be leaving
'cos soldier go, soldier come,
but you are not forgotten,


No idol like mother.
A mother is like precious gold,
priceless beyond compare.
She is like a precious gold.


In life, there are people that will hurt us and wrong us, but learn how to forgive and have a kindred heart.
In life, there are people that will disappoint us and leave us, but learn how to adjust and move on and let go.
In life there are obstacles on the way, but learn how to overcome for its meant to stir you up for greatness.
In life, there is failure that can make you fall and discourage, even if you fall learn how to stand and climb again.

A Short Life

If this is a goodbye, then the journey is short.
Am a sojourner, a stranger and wanderer.
The little life I had lived is of no regret.
Although, no monument has been dedicated to me.


The sound of morning awake me with joy.
It means a new day as begin.
The beauty of the rising sun is incomparable,
And the thirst of the dew is refreshing.
