Dear Mr. Oak

I will wait
I will till you’re done hibernating
Till the threat of snows shall have faded
Till the fear of pests shall have waned
But until then tell me please..
Mr. Oak where do I rest?
I’m done reminiscing the good family moments
spent here,
The meals we ate here served more than empty stomachs
but uplifted our spirits as a young family savored your warmth
Your belly was a spring of a rare cocktail that elicited tranquility
with every breath we fed our lungs
I need more than just a shade
I miss the gentle whisper of your leaves in the afternoon wind,
the serenity of your sight through my window and the gentle buzzing
of insects close to my ears whenever I sat here
Mr. Oak you’re a part of my family
I often think of you as an incarnation of my great grandfather; Hehir
My wife says she misses the fragrance of flowers of spring
she says she misses the moist scent of earth at your feet
But most importantly, please Mr. Oak Tree
Dress up again, in your green cardigan
because my first-born is on the way
he can’t find you naked.

The power of Words

It was three in the morning and I was still awake

There were lots disturbing my mind and all I needed was a break

So I turned on the lights picked up a pen and penned my pain on a page

Doing all this in a bid to find where I had made a mistake coz things weren’t right

But I didn’t know why?

How could I fail to get all I sought?

I sought revenge and I got regrets

I sought fame and I got shame

I sought love and I got hate

I sought peace and they broke my front teeth

I have suffered but now I know where I made the mistake…

I never appreciated the power of words!

I need no specs to see you are vexed

I need no crown to make you smile and clear that frown off your face

I need no spiritual supernova to remind you that God knows your pain

I need no watch to know it isn’t the right time to apportion Blames

I need no fire extinguisher to save your faith getting lost in flames

I need no vector to put you back on the right path

I need no calculations to know what you are worth

I need no hands to hold your crumbling world

I need no therapy to soothe your breaking heart

I need words to retrieve your faith from the flames

I need words to help you see what lies beneath the pain

I need words to make your heart whole again

I need words to tell you are worth more than diamonds

I need words to straighten your twisted future

I need words to pick your shattered dreams from the paths tread by losers

I need words, I need words for the bible tells me my tongue has the power to speak life into your dead soul

I need words, I need words,….Ooo the power of words.. Never underestimate the power of words
