Illumined-hearty (the new world ordeal) by Samuel Amazing Ayoade BlazingPen

These dangling beads I fear shall waste
For they are adorned on forbidden waists
Waists that waists and wastes away
By the way of Eve’s serpent.
.
These struggling bands of bound men
From the realm of immortal clan
With clanging cymbals clapping change
Raped Jacob’s daughter yesterday.
.
They run errands around the rounds
Buying possesions and rights
For the sons of the deceased
Whose father they murdered.
.
Marry your daughter
For suitors absconds
She robbed them and stole her dowry
And claim you both spent it.
.
This is the new world ordeal
And the cry of the illumined hearts
The sky weeps
For the kinsmen we died for are killing us.

Ecclipse by Samuel Amazing Ayoade

the sun and the moon
each has a horn
and raises its own –
the darkness of the sun and moon.
.
the good and the bad
each has a ballad
and projects its mirth –
the ecclipse of the earth.

Always Counting Places with Spaces by Julia Marie

Always Counting Places With Spaces…
If there was just one space of time,
A Count to revolution!
I would take your hand
And kiss your Soul,
Over and over again
Where the haunting days stopped counting,
Where the tickle in your heart, stopped breathing!
Cause I know those places;
Where kindness lingers.
Oh, Sweet heart vibrating,
Take me, Take me Whole
Succumber in the Lilly of your heart
Stopping, stopping your breath
Into mine…

Freedom in Chains by Ogechi Veronica

I watched in perpetual dismay
As the world goes by
The treasured treasure
Highly esteemed
The lamp of truth
An ancient trend
Upheld in the pinnacle of the mountain
The esteemed values
A bunch of alluring norms
Today, changed in history
Ah! It’s the new world order
A modern world
I heard them say,
It’s Civi-culture
The abhored abomination
A dance of soul indoctrination
And they said,
What more is freedom than this?
Who can trample on freedom?
Who can contend against it?
He made them
Man and woman
In our hands, lies creativity
Style the old trend
Mould the world to our taste
Liberty,all the way
Weep O’ye daughters of Jerusalem
Weep, the land is defiled
Weep aloud
For the worms of decay
Behold, a fool’s wisdom
A freedom in chains
Weep for the ignorance of man.
