May the month of beauty and maybeMay is that time of the year in the northeast of maybe spring or summer
It is the peak of spring and the beginning of summer.
It sometimes plays in our mentality.
Maybe its rains today, sunny tomorrow or cloudy the next.
It is warm today and maybe cold.
I start with peak clarity and deep confusion,
Then I pick up to decide because what I invested in May will determine my June.
May is beautiful, hopeful confusing but also a time to be decisive and seek clarity.
May is a time to plan for the remaining year.
Africa the motherland
Oh! Africa full of beauty and gem, luscious and alive
The sun rising majestically. I’m in awe of its beauty,
The red, yellow sky big goodnight and blue in the day
It ushered magnificent moon for light at night
Innumerable stars are ever bright in African sky
Sparkling like a diamond in the African night
Oh Africa! What can be compare to your beauty?
The river runs deep and shallow ever flowing
The blue oceans meet at the tip of the south
The Ubo spring ever fresh and sweet
Food still grows from nature, and delicious
As I lay in bed I hear the whistle of the wind
That gives great melody to the tree whispering
And birds singing as cock crow at dawn
Stretching out with a smile, as the sun floods in
The day begins. What a wonderful way to wake in Africa
My heart, my home and God’s grand design. My Africa!
What happen to you oh Africa?
Men of power eating your children while trodden on you
How long would you survive this wickedness?
Your children are being preyed upon for money and greed
