I Pause To Play..

Image result for images of pause

and my roller coaster crashed!
it came to a jarring halt
my mojo kinda left my heart
pursuing green paper to pay the bills
with little time to sleep a wink
several hungry mouths to feed
my brain almost has no time to think
the greenback has become the king
the king of this jungle called life
I need to get my mojo back

Please forgive my tardiness in responding to your comments. I’m usually not this rude but like my people would say ‘something bigger than the cricket has entered the crickets mouth.’

My life has been a bumpier ride of late, events beyond my control have been trying to take the drivers wheel, but I refuse and trying to get back the grip. I took a pause so that I can get back into the game asap. I have taken odd jobs to keep body and soul together as I ride the rough tide. All is well with me, yet turbulent.

Be well and I’ll be reaching you soon. I miss you.

What My Mama Said To Me…12

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
you can’t stand on the ground
and be pointing up at the ripe palm nuts,

You must be willing
to get your fingers stained with oil palm
in order to enjoy its succulence.

What My Mama Said To Me…11

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
grumbling from Jericho to Jerusalem
is never going to make your dough rise;

not when you’ve failed
to add much-needed yeast
and to give it the required kneading.

What My Mama Said To Me…10

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
there comes a time when
you’ll tell your goat
to stop giving its milk for free,

‘cos a neighbour
used to getting free milk
will never purchase his own goat
instead, he’ll milk more to make cheese.

What My Mama Said To Me…9

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
this life is a marketplace
filled with useful and useless goods,

what you fill your basket with
determines how profitable you’ll be
at the end of your purchases.

What My Mama Said To Me…7

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
never gripe and whine about
how heavy your cross is,

‘cos in the warehouse of crosses
you might find that
yours is the lightest of all.

Mama said to me, baby,

 never make fun

of the burden borne by others,

‘cos if they perchance share their load with you,

you would find that

its weight could bend your spine.
