In command of my existence
Determination my subsistence
Days gone by are history
Tomorrow’s shrouded in mystery
Unafraid boundlessly
Embracing life relentlessly
Weaving yarns of lessons learnt
Into the tapestry of time’s art
As sure as each day births the next
Realities deliver hurdles and tests
The choices are to buck or fly
To give one more step a try

Introducing you to some fantastic new and semi-new bloggers! Trust me they'll be worth every bit of your time. Please applaud as I enjoy the honor of introducing:

Culturecynic: I am definitely sure some of you have discovered this refreshing blog but if you haven't drop by and chill out.

Turumarth: He is my friend, a kindred spirit, I have always hoped he'll share his incredible mind with the rest of us and now he has. Need I say more. For scintillating poetry and demented bipolar rants this is the place to be.

Freddie: New blogger, flows like a mutha'. Seriously guyz, I think he's got something on his chest he just has to offload.

More great blogs on blogsville.

"For scintillating poetry and demented bipolar rants this is the place to be."

I'm flattered... I think. :)

PS: wait till these people actually check out my page, Fangface... Hear that whoosh? There goes your reputation for having good taste.

Turumarth said...

Now, about poem: Rhyming couplets!!! One more and you'd have hit the required length for a classic sonnet. This dates back to before Shakespeare. Ha ha, you're becoming establishment, girl.

OK, seriously... it's great. Recognizable and relevant structure, effective rhyme without becoming slavish, a rather powerful message which is not damaged by not being a new thought (the greatest poems are all about universal subjects)... all in all, great. Only one thing I'd have preferred otherwise but that's just me; doesn't take anything away.

Fave line:

Determination my subsistence

Freddie said...

Dropping in to show my profound appreciation for the intro... Nice to know Nigerians are into poetry and stuff. Your poems just set me adrift everytime I read em. Keep em coming girl... I am sooooo inspired!!! Thanks for the tips at my site too, you just got tagged.

doug said...

Ok...that drowned me for a bit. Wow. Can't take it apart like Turumarth, but that was some really good stuff. Inspiring.

Rita said...

I need to sit down under you for lessons in do have a way with words...

Guess what, I was driving one day on third mainland bridge and I thought of one of your post (the one where the security guard ripped you of some cash) and I was wondering how you manage the drive day in day out.

How have you been? Take care and have a beautiful day.

Here's to giving one more step a try. That's all one can do really. Keep trying...even when you tire. Just keep trying. Ahhh. May God order my footsteps to try the right things @ the right time and for the right reasons. AMEN
