…EARTH………. 12PM…?!!!!!





Today was bore by yesterday
I shot the seed into the earth yesterday
And Today I am told to uproot
“Uproot!” They advised.
“Why did you plant?”, they asked.

12pm, I have decided to uproot
I cry when I think of uprooting
Uprooting the same seed I planted
As I uproot I shed tears and blood.
“Dig dig and dig”, they commanded.
I dug and they laughed.

But I have seen people harvest
Why can’t I?
“SHUT UP!”
I follow suit with shaky voice…
I would have loved the harvest.
I SWEAR! Am sorry!

Good bye unknown fruit, good bye seed
Will I see you again?

These is my sorry-heavy heart
Am sorry!
I will plant again!

SOB! SOB! It’s 12 P.M.

BYE

  5. Man, you’ve got ‘it’ and I see you doing this on a much bigger stage pretty soon. That was one helluva deep one. Hmmm, I could go over this a million times. Regret is unnecessary in whatever we do. The past is the past. The task is to make the present and the future better even if it means having to shut up and plant again and again. . . Meanwhile, I just heard from the grapevine that Geebee has been nominated on naijabloggersaward for BEST STUDENT BLOG. Please show this brova some love and go vote from 12 midnight today. Cheers.

  16. Why does this make me think of abortions and never to be born babies? How the fear of society's recrimination forces young people who've made poor choices to make uninformed decisions. And how the system in Nigeria offers little or no help to such people. Even with this i can still find a million and one interpretation to this poem. Served hydra-headed, just the way i like it.

  17. Hmm, this can apply to God knows how many things. It reminds me of Bob Marley's song:

    "...everytime I plant a seed, he says kill them before they grow"

  20. it kinda sucks when you've put your heart and soul into something and then you're snatched away from it... or it's taken away... there's a reason for everything... one can only continue to remain positive/optimistic and keep doing what you do best...
