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.
Should we say, the gods are crazy,
When you served the gods to the best,
Of your ability, faithfully,
And wishing never to offend any of them.
For they said, they were easily offended.
Can the gods speak for themselves,
Are they not mute, dumb and blind.
You speak for them, they mocked you.
You found favour with them,
You merit on it,
But they say, watch your path,
The gods are watching,
For they were known to be jealous.
Who are they watching?
Can the blind watch?
When you are there eyes.

Comments about The Gods Are Crazy

who can know the minds of the gods? they smile, and the moke, they are crazy, easily offended. mute, dumb and blind. they are jealous. these beings are not Gods. they are simple creation of men....... religion as a creation of human minds. Do not believe in such God.s as you yourself say they will cheat you........ another question? can you believe in Jesus Christ. can you read the NT in holy Bible. then you will see God is all love. love and love alone.. than k you dear poetess. for this eyeopening poem. tony

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.
