Life… Poetry

Life is fleeting

Like the rose in the morn

Withers in the night

We have naught to show for our toils.

Life is purple

A shade of doom and bliss

We get on a quest that never ends

Treading on to El-dorado

Life is a hawk

It swops down to steal us

Catching us unaware
To the land of the unknown.

It’s 23 days into the new year and the rate of deaths is alarming. Thank God, I am yet to lose anyone close to me but friends of friends, nephew, uncle and aunties of friends are dying. I have been a bit melancholic these days and it has got me wondering what is going wrong. I hope your day is going on smoothly.

We are alive and it’s enough reason to be thankful.

Until next time,
