LIFE By Fatai Ismail Omobolaji

Written by Editor

Oh Life!

Life could be many things; I wonder what it is to you?

Life could be days

Yes, it could be nights

But have not witness many days and nights a lot

So, I wonder what it is to all of us

Oh Life!

Life could be many things; I wonder what it is to you?

Life could be color

It could be white as snow

It could be black like the night lacquer it’s surface

It could be blue just like the sky

It could be gray, yellow and red just the way rainbow has it’s colors

I wonder what color it is to all of us

Oh Life!

Life could be many things; I wonder what it is to you?

Life could be overwhelming, boundaries everywhere to cross

Sometimes it could be straightforward and danced to your perfect lines

So, I wonder what path it has chosen for all of us

Oh Life!

Life could be many things; I wonder what it is to you?

It could devour you with golds, silvers and riches

Or sanctified you with infamy, fragility and impoverishment

Maybe mixture of both at time

Oh life!

Life could be many things; I wonder what it is to you?

It is the people you see in your front, back and sideways

It is the image you see in the mirror when it reflects

it is everything that surround you in your present predicament

Life could be many things; I wonder what it is to you?
