Life

by

Dorothy Okpa


I flow in the Ocean of Mercy
I slope from the Ordeal of Mess
Flow and slope i go to and fro
Ocean G ot no enemy nor friend
Life is like the flow of the O cean
Yes,the waters reaches all
Life tosses left and right,back and forth.
I live in the World of pain and tribulations
People expect much with no understanding
Wanting a Perfect Being
But the reality is that SOUL is eternal
It goes back HOME to its CREATOR
That is the giver of Life whether We like it or not

Humanity finds it hard to be detached about life
The mind makes attachment to materiality
Love given is thrown back in the face
Haba! how can this mentality be apprehended
I wonder and ponder about it all.
Man-made beauty brings pain
And man has to preen himself in the game of life
What is there to do to keep the sanity
Man`s struggleends in vanity.
The world is not ours you see
WE are in the beingness of nothingness
SO i wonder why we keep flowing in sea of nothingness
Nothing,absolutely nothing.

a world of respect for others whatever your colour

We need to make that change there is no superman out there
