The Fire

Poem By Adeola Babalola

Fire is good,
i tend to put my hands
and it burns.

Never start that fire,
if you do, many might be left orphaned.
Many more will starve.
And that woman there,
you might not see again.

Don't start it.
That i myself knows not,
what fate would give me.
Because, he has not choosen to be my friend sometimes.

So, when you choose for us,
watch it!
That you might not cause more harm than good.

Comments about The Fire

And what can a better way be than yours to elucidate Fire and kindle us readers
Yes fire is good when it is used to warm people, cook food and benefit diverse cultures and civilizations. But your warning is succinct, 'That you might not cause more harm than good' as simplistic solutions and military interventions in Africa and throughout the world have repeatedly proven. The warm fire of love and peace is a better policy.
A very concerned citizen of the World! Your good human spirit is obvious in this well penned and poignant write! 10+++ Keep inspiring the world with your great talent! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City! ...
Please stop hat fire is very thoughtful because the fire is good but it destroys
nice thought, and word of caution keep it up

Like Peter and Paul
at the beautiful gate

You speak words,
yet you have no mouth.
You think fast,
but you have no minds.

Night Walker

I am a night walker,
yet, i am not a bat
neither am i a vampire.
It is the survival

Who Will Help?

looking at them,
we are all staring
doing nothing
not because we don't know what to do,

Why Call On God

Why call on God?
When we failed to help him
praying with tears and ulcer stomach.
Running from mountain to hill.
