Nigerian writer: Irony

Felix Brambaifa

A place of choice
Outside the forceps of grief
Liberates one's voice
Like a long incasereted thief

The truth was said
Of when man's need be sated
His greed misplaced
Transcends limit, unabated

Fulfilment is not in numbers
But in the ideas we hold
So it is indeed no wonder
That even the rich grow old

When man desires a thing
His will soon becomes perverted
Defiling his natural being
For desires not truly wanted

But in all this
exist a glaring contradiction
Of all things gone amiss
As if by heavens decision

Nigerian writer: Thought

Felix Brambaifa

The journey of life
Starts from a conscious thought
Though it be filled with strife
They are wishes brought forth
              By thought
Everything is but a concept
Crafted by the powers of mind
And in the material, Made manifest
As if by an external hand

Nigerian Writer: In Life

Felix Brambaifa

In this life we must come across different people. Many by chance, some by fate and few by  destiny. Those we came across through chance would base our friendship on excuses, those by fate would help fulfil purposes whether good or bad and see friendship as a means to an end while those we meet because of destiny are the missing puzzles in our lives, without them our existence is unto nothing. Be careful you don't treat those from destiny with excuses and as a means to an end because a time will come when all you would need is a hand from destiny and you would realize nothing else matters but then it would be too late.~brambaifawrites~
