a poem by David Omrenya Odey, Nigeria


Life's difficult without love.
Now, I ain't narrow about this.
It is all around us but perceived differently.

It is manifested in things we cannot explain.
It is found even in the mundane.
It shines forth even from dark depths

What's love to you?
The colours of the rainbow?
The silence of the night, or the bubble in daylight?

Sometimes we struggle to fit...
To cultures and trends inimical to our soul.
While somewhere, our true passion unceasingly beckons.

We fail most time when we conform,
Or fail in our calling to be us.
We forget the world needs you too...

We must accept the master piece that's us,
For there, lies yet a beautiful manifestation.
Life is beautiful when you become love.
