Hope

Emmanuel Obokoh

Have you ever had that feeling

That feeling of not being enough?

That feeling of fear for not achieving purpose?

That feeling of fear of the unknown?

That feeling of waking up to questions & regrets

Have you ever clinched so hard to the feeling of someone or something for hope?

Have you ever thought of giving up on hope?

Have you ever thought to live a life driven by hope and beliefs?

The world is a vast place filled with answers to all our questions and doubts

It takes strength & courage to seek that which you desire

Sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone to have a different perspective as to how you see life.

Life is short they say, so you need to Live, Learn & Love to the fullest.

What’s your hope on?

Let’s trace that step back together

Sometimes all we need is a push.

Sometimes all we need is a moment of joy & happiness

Sometimes all we need is to learn to spread love & light.

Seasons Pass

The Journey and Sunshine made my skin dark as clay and with each step Angels were my light, night and day.

The stars were lit, the moon full so as every string was struck in accordance to every note, the Angels led the way.

Every symphony birth from the beauty emitting from your smiles and gestures was so much a sign that this piece, I no go fit throw wey.

As the leafs dropped from the the tree’s branches, down to the streets, due to the freezing wind lingering upon it, I watched from a distance wishing you were next to me.

Fancy leather boots from the store with shinny glass windows and I was reminded with you it is all or nothing.

If love could dare wither away as quickly as these leafs or leather on these boots, I never loved you truly.
