COFFINS OF HOPES, A POEM BY SULYMAN ADAM OPEYEMI

COFFINS OF HOPES, A POEM BY SULYMAN ADAM OPEYEMI

Hopes hanged above, spread below like mat, pragmatic lives in Hades and God helps who help themselves

Waves of sea water,
waves and splashes on the cheek of rocks,
water of renewed hopes and independence.

Rain rains, soaked mother’s earth
to raise the flower from seedling hopes
to let raise high, higher
and mother’s earth eats the harvest

Once hot sand
as becomes chilly, a tempting call
to barefoot for a walk. A
walk to the hope land?

Ounce of hope plus ounce of hope
plus crowd ounce of hope
merged in coffins

In a land,
where hopes were high on
like bottles of Vodka
drank by gluttonous consumer

Comfortably distressing in the havens of
their room. Ventilating with hopes,
while outside room is an oven of hopes. Its
fire, fuel with their blood

Hopes hanged above,
spread below like mat,
pragmatic lives in Hades
and God helps who help themselves

Hopes in myriad:
hope for miracle, to happen like magic
hope for money, to fall like rain
hope of insecurity they created, to fade like fart
hope for good leader, the one they create not

Uche Njie

Hope back hopes,
to the dam of water for bath.
Hope struggling on dry lung,
like thirsty traveler on desert
yet they hope, to find oasis in the middle

Perhaps when we burn these coffins of hopes
when we choose pragmatic
and left hope to die
with distress of no one
on the street of our pragmatic
perhaps we turn this nation to giant again!
