This Cup Of Life

Poem By Ubong Essien

Add me up in the cup,
Let me be drown even for ages.
I want to drink it to my fill.
And till I thirst no more,
Let me still be drinking more of it
This cup of life!
O more of her.

While the sun shines
I'll be a poet;
When darkness comes
I'll be a poet;
And when the days are over
I'll sleep a poet;
With the light in me inspiring on.

This cup of life!
Drug on my soul.
I see love in the cup,
Add more of it.
I've learnt much from the cup,
Drown me in the flood.
Life speaks his meaning when I'm inspired
This cup of life!
I want more of her.

We just don't know
Until we know
