The Battle Goes on

By   /  December 14, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on The Battle Goes on

By A Anato Swu The battle goes on For lives I do not own. My enemy I cannot sight, But I fight with all my might. Lest precious souls die forever, And tears flow endless like a river. I’ve lost my brothers. I’ve also lost my sisters To vices birthed by my foes, Who vex […]

The Flight of The Raptors

By   /  December 3, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on The Flight of The Raptors

Tis the last week of golden October, When the summer season heat took its flight. The bountiful rain set the dust with might, To drizzle again in mid-November. A spell of magic haunts this ancient land. Sailed they, The Raptors, to the cosy south Leaving their icy breeding ground in north To rest their long […]

Moving on Despite…

By   /  November 29, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on Moving on Despite…

The life I live is not of my own. I know not when He’ll put me down. My past has caused dear ones to frown, But my present proves that I have moved on. I know I am not the same guy, And that’s the blessed reason why I don’t regret for my dark past […]

Paint Your Gifted Canvas

By   /  November 25, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on Paint Your Gifted Canvas

The azure skies as the canvas; The trees as brush of all sizes; Flowers, array of many colours, And all men & women painters… Yet a mortal find himself lacking To depict His love in his painting, For ignorance & laxity takes over And keep his wisdom undercover. Thus, the Lord-given blank pages, For mankind […]

Striving on till “REST”

By   /  November 7, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on Striving on till “REST”

Turbulent times and situations I face, Sometimes, slow down my race. Discouragement raises its ugly head And blurs my vision to go ahead. Heaven seems to go deaf to prayers Utter’d by a soul seeking answers, Whilst days fleet by sans consolation And I still remain under confusion. Hark! The soft, still voice announces, “Idle […]

Life- A Perilous Voyage

By   /  November 2, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on Life- A Perilous Voyage

By A Anato Swu | EMN Life’s often not what the eye sees. A vessel sailing in the great seas. Calm to a beholder on the shore. Peril to hand that steers the oar. Happy deck-hands on friendly water, Setting up proud sails on fair weather, Soon may face the ravaging storm. And none but the […]

Ode to a Lost Brother

By A. Anato Swu Tears for a Lost Brethren. (Death Be Not Proud) Tears so liberally flow down this face, While thy soul stealthy takes its place In t’e paradise of each fulfilled dreams, Where joy eternal runs in clear streams. You’d wait with angels till life wakes, On the Day when the trumpet breaks To […]

By A Anato Swu Of my personal battles and wars I carry many big and small scars. In the eyes of the world it is ugly, But I’ve learnt to take it as lovely. For I lived to tell about each scar Even to those peoples from afar. Each ugly scar bears a testimony Of […]

You Lose When You Quit

By   /  June 12, 2018  /  Poems  /  Comments Off on You Lose When You Quit

By Kepevino Hozoyeh There is a lion roaring inside of you; Wanting to scream for justice! Many innocent lives destroyed in front of you Your hands are not tied yet you can do nothing So much of anger inside of you Not because of the corruption around you But because you can do nothing about it […]
