The rough road of life By: Nonso Amadi

THE ROUGH ROAD OF LIFE

As the morning emerges

On the peak of sleep

I sleep not

 

I look unto the sky

Images I found

What a journey

What a fate

So soon! As I thinketh

 

Thou draws an illusion

Although like a misery

The part; where is thee

Life, I think of thee

 

Where is thy hope?

To think of another tomorrow

Today thou hoped a better?

Where did you go?

Thou knows why things happen

He will not allow thee to suffer

Words that giveth life

An interesting accolade

To tomorrow as a better place

But an awaiting tomorrow

What thou deserveth to know

Condition of today no permanence

As we rile here and after

Today of sorrow

Tomorrow of joy

Hubby Out There: Must Read for Every Woman

Hubby Out There: Must Read for Every Woman

Hubby Out There!

Dear Future Hubby

Whoever you may be

I dread at which arms now you rest

And whose lips now you lock.

I wonder how many you have professed love to

After which same you will profess to me

If neither of us finds each other,

How forlorn we will grow in the embrace of the wrong one

For I am your missing rib

Dear Future Hubby,

Quit being a busy bee on a honeyless flower

Engage in something worthwhile

Be it tailoring or any other and fast slip a ring in my ring finger

Water the ground for my coming

I have long from cradle prepared for your coming.

I have been taught to keep clean, to keep home, to keep you.

I have also been taught

To close my Legs for another and open just for you.

Dear Future Hubby;

I am rose but I fear greatly that if you don’t hasten your coming,

Or come as the Christ would come,

I might wither and fade

My ballooned chest will a deflated tyre become

My waist everyone adored, everyone, will overlook

My Rapunzel hair will return a skin’s hair

An old hag I will become

And my father’s wife I will remain

Oh! Dear Future Hubby out there;

Come now the morning dew rests on our skin

As a youth lets play love

Devouring ourselves in the most romantic of ways

Let’s play the love of today

And not tomorrow still play the love of today

Lets at a slow pace take it

Just as the slow sipping of a tasty wine

Hasten your coming

My Day One Crush – Deeply in Love

My Day One Crush – Deeply in Love

My Day One Crush – Poem by Ahaneku Nkeiruka

A sickness of the heart, I have long

Suffered but dismissing as nothing

It has remained permanent as the firmaments of heaven

A ton of helpless doses have I tried

But it spreads through my heart

Snuffing out my breath

Help me less I die!

“Love in the heart” so I speak of

A dose of your love and care each day can do wonders

So the doctors have prescribed

A million pictures of you have I with

My eyes stolen. How I missed my steps

Bumping and falling when lost in the

Admiration of your chiseled face

Beaked nose, cotton lips, heavens smile!

When you fed you brothers baby

I wished I was the one. When you

Played and boo boo booed on her stomach

I craved it was me.

Oh! Let’s play love and on the bed be a clapping of hands

I wish you could spend as much time

With me as with your books and guitars

Most lucky is your sister whom you

Tickle and cuddle and love, though

Platonic. Fortunate is your towel that

Romances you each day

Most lucky is your toothbrush that

Kisses you each day

Could you add ‘est’ to the dear you call me

And make me your dearest?

Could you change the “I like you”

You tell me to “I love you”

You never told me?

Could you increase the calls you give

Me from “once a month” to trice a week?

Elevate me to closest friend, I ask you

Could you understand the deepness of

My love for you as same as the pacific oceans?

Madness I call it. Dreaming each day of you

Eating, drinking, watching, and wearing only your favorites.

Day One Crush Poem by Ahaneku Nkeiruka

Day One Crush Poem by Ahaneku Nkeiruka

I have fought gallantly this fiery feeling

But I have been defeated honorably

And, now I can shout from the

Mountain top, I love you! I love you!

Without apologies. I don’t care if

The African society calls me strange

The cock should chase the hen

Not the other way round, they say

But rare it is for Miss peacock to

Let down her beautiful wings

I care less if you reciprocate my love

After all, the earth has not returned

The heaven’s love. In wishing your

Love, I have rode like an equestrian

Wishing horses were wishes

And whoop! If afterwards my love you return

How forever I will dance

How eternally I will laugh

Always wearing a smile like our

Dear old ageless sun

Essence of Marriage – A Captivating Poem

Essence of Marriage

[By Ahaneku Nkeiruka Portable] – Essence of Marriage –

There are love birds

But Certainly no lifelong love birds

He-goats love she-goat for her anus

And the chicken has given his mother eggs to carry.

Marriage is only human

A magnetic pull of two hearts

A wonderful union

Beyond smiles, friendship, and love.

Beyond Criticisms and advice

Beyond Rings and Vows

Beyond relations and friends

Beyond wealth and looks

Beyond dowry and rites

Beyond religion and blessings

Beyond witnesses and signatures

Beyond kids and sun.

It is simply what it is

It is simply meant to be

It simply is

It simply would be.


About the Poem

Surely, a layman in the art of literature may not understand the hidden/internal meaning behind every line of the poem. However, the poem is written in a very simple language, but for the sake of clearance and to avoid ambiguities, the analysis will be made.

The poem extols the deepness of marriage. Marriage is one of the scariest missions to embark on, due to the possibility of being with the wrong person or final break (Divorce). It is therefore not a child’s play.

       Poem Title                            Poet
Essence of Marriage             Miss Ahaneku Nkeiruka

The Poem Essence of Marriage;

The poem “Essence of Marriage” seeks to reveal and expose that the concept of marriage, contrary to what people over the years have thought, does not rest on the shoulders of any concept at all. No! No! No!

People tend to attach marriage to many things that have proven faulty and unproductive. you hear people say ‘Love is the ultimate in marriage’ whereas it is crystal clear that even Love has been unable to hold marriage.

Love is simply not the sole determinant of a happy/long-lasting marriage. How about compatibility, the right chemistry, background among others? But Hey! Don’t get the poet wrong. In as much as marriage is not dependent on anything yet, it needs the support of such attachments as indicated in the poem by the poet to extend.


Poetic Analysis

In the first stanza, the poet shows that there is no ‘love qua love’ among animals. All are just after the business of mating and every illusory love was geared towards reproduction and pleasure. A bird after expressions of love to another will still un-apologetically fly into the arms of another.

Notice that the goat has high ‘libido’, voracious sexual appetite. Study the chickens; a cock impregnates the hen and goes to another while the chicks of the hen later impregnates its mum. It’s a vicious circle sometimes.

Stanza Two;

In Stanza two, the poet presents marriage as solely meant for humans. The 8th line shows that marriage is above smiles, friendship, and love. In other words, Saying that friendship and love are the main ingredients for a happy marriage is faulty. It leads and then bows out.

Line 9;

Line 9 shows that even amidst criticisms and advice given for and against a prospective union, that union can be without it.

Marriage is also beyond rings and vows. All these are just symbolic and traditional. Even with the costliest rings and vows “I DO”, many still cheat right on their matrimonial beds.

Marriage is also beyond relations and friends. This set of people (parents, brothers, sisters, etc) cannot guarantee a successful marriage.

In fact, avoid a third party in your marriage. Marriage is also beyond wealth and looks. These things will, over the years, prove only ephemeral.

Line 13;

Line 13 shows that no matter the church or mosques one is wedded in, no matter the blessings your father or mother, grandfathers, and mothers, great grandfathers, and mothers, marriage that will dissolve will dissolve.

Dowry and rites are what the poet sees as “Fulfilling all Righteousness”. Many have had bride prices paid 10 times over (an exaggeration though).

Line 15;

Line 15 shows that even if you gather the whole world to witness your marriage or sign signatures both in churches and court (court marriage), yet it cannot hold marriage or guarantee the genuineness of the marriage. – Essence of Marriage –

“Beyond Kids and Sun”. Again a person with kids outside of marriage cannot because of that engage in a regretful marriage. Similarly, being in a bitter marriage with 3 to 4 children cannot prevent that marriage from collapsing.

“Beyond Sun” – As well, no time is perfect for marriage. Many say it is because one married early, that was why the marriage was not successful (Juvenile Delinquency reasons and all that) whereas many in those early marriages have had sustained marriages till today. -Essence of Marriage –

Last Stanza;

The last Stanza summarizes ‘marriage’ while revealing that if you strip marriage of all the aforementioned attachments, it will still survive. There is no comfort zone to marriage as all (aforementioned attachments) have failed.

Marriage is a nature’s call. It is like finding the right shape to fill in a vacuum shape. If a vacuum shape is shaped circle and you try to force in a triangle, it certainly would not be possible.

Biblically, find your missing rib:

The better half/soulmate. The consciousness should be, being with the right person and not making of forcing a visibly wrong marriage workable.

However, though marriage has no strings attached to it, yet it needs all these concepts for a better, happy, long-lasting, successful marriage.

Mission of uncertainties! [A Captivating Poem]

MISSION OF UNCERTAINTIES

By: Nonso Amadi – mission of uncertainties!

Years comes, years passes!

The early dews dances out

As Night chameleons to day

The brightness of the day shines

So the day embraces the dark

All uncertainties.

 

What a bright new day,

The wall clock where is thy patience?

As it rotates its four cardinal points

North to south, East to west!

Showing its hatred for mankind;

It waits for no one!

 

As the cock crawls!

The prospect man in pursuit of survival.

A taxi driver calls on his passengers,

Bestir bestir!

All a struggles towards uncertainties.

 

With it’s meditative movement

It goes Anti-clockwise

Is thou with a mission?

Thou a mission to nowhere!

 

As nature moves,

We rile here and after

We think, we jungle!

All to dance, a dance in lyrics

To embellish the harmony..;

In a nearby future,

The future uncertain!

 

The land tortoise as it keeps calm thinking,

In an enclosure neither to go or keep still;

It stays fixed at a place,

The claimed beings woos its foolishness

To the unwise being!

All our own faults!

Its quietness, a quietness of mystery,

A mystery of the universe!

 

A universe of beings.

The beings with their mission

Their mission of uncertainties!

Mission of Uncertainties
