A god in God's image.
A king magnificent in his might and power.
The sixth work of the creation.
A symbol of power, strength, and bravery.
Destined assigned by the Divine one, His maker.
The sacificer, future builder, exemplar,
The decision maker, patriarch, disciplinarian,
The teacher, A working knowledge of weaponry,
And preferably, rock-solid abs.
Faced with tension evoked by the morrow.
Scorched by heat, frozen by cold.
The protector, provider, lion-like creature,
bestowed with nine lives.
Hail the king! Hail the king! !

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.
