Drowning in time

Time, the boundless string that binds all
The endless stream that flows in awe
Amazing how the stream flows swiftly from seconds to minutes
With its shores seeming unreachable

Like turbulence at seashore never moves the sea
Man's haste never unsettles time
Yes, they say time waits for no man
I'm wondering, should man rather wait for time

Just yesterday, some said they were in control of the flow
How come all wee see today is their drowning bodies?
They flew on the wings of time in peace
But fell to its wind in pieces

We see footprints as we move
How did those manage to remain on the sands of this ever-flowing stream?
Mystery, like footprints on the rock
Misery, time is a blueprint not to mock

P.S: This is a duet with Mayowa Tijani

Love Unsaid

"I think I've fallen in love with this girl but I don't even know how to face her. It's just crazy man."

Those were the words I heard as I approached the door
I remember how we all talked and laughed for hours afterwards
And how he acted like he never said those words
remember how I pretended like I didn't hear a thing
And like the 'her' isn't me

This isn't home

This could be us 
But you think I'm too much of this 
And I don't have enough of that

So my eyes watched you walk away
My heart asked why
My head answered "This isn't home"

Letter to my father 2

Your love was more important than seeing me sad
And this kind of makes me mad

As I growl in pain again
I try to find some sunshine in this rain

I think of all the love and life I’ve had to let go
Just because you couldn’t say no

I took to wine
Because the one I love can’t be mine

Drugs have become food
Just like the hospital is now my hood

Death may come knocking anytime
I’ve watched those like me die in their prime

Didn’t you just wonder
How bad it could be for a sickler?

I heard there’s a friend
Who can be with me till the end

I’m waiting to get some light from him
Because mine is going dim

P.S: This isn't a sequel to the previous post. They are all my random thoughts! Feel free to share your thoughts on any of the posts as well.

Letter to my father 1

It’s disheartening
That you walked away like we don’t mean a thing

I wanted to have a daddy
I wanted mummy to be someone’s lady

I watched her hustle day and night
She ensured lack was out of my sight

She said you guys used to be in love
Is there really a thin line between hate and love?

I know she’s made of good stuff
I wonder why she was never enough

I grew up so fast
Believing tough times won’t last

Your baby girl is all grown
She learnt to do things on her own

While she patiently waits for a king which you never were to her
She’ll forever embrace the love and strength of the king woman that raised her
