Forest of Possibilities…

art-ball-ball-shaped, bubble

You were afraid
to live your dreams,
and you buried them
in the place you believed
they would be safe;
now everyone who goes by
sees a forest of possibilities.

#Buried dreams

What My Mama Said To Me…16

 

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby
never go borrowing
those things meant for others

or

be prepared
to live with the discomfort
that accompanies them.

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
when you find yourself stuck in a deep hole
just look up and see how tall you are

Stifle…

Imagination, Creativity, Poems

you cut my tongue

 took it to the morgue

 to stifle my words;

you chopped my fingers

 burnt them to cinders

to bridle my vigour;

yet my thoughts

cease to staunch

from fluttering out

Mama said to me, baby,
not all your problems
are worth bringing into the light
of the day

We tie such petty issues
beneath our George wrapper
and squash them squarely
between the resilience of our thick thighs.

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.

Mama said to me, baby if you find that you are not happy there,
never choose to remain there in a sad state,
because you haven’t been planted like an Iroko tree.

Don’t you know that even an Iroko tree can decide to excuse itself
by choosing to rot and wither from within,
rather than suffer the insult of insolent birds?
