Abekah Emmanuel Poems
To My Princess
And so yesterday I met her And the sun will my witness bear, She was on her way to the river When suddenly I was attacked by fever,
All But Dreams
The meaning of life always intrigues me, Each and everyday, I wonder how Life can be such a difficult thing To understand to the brim.
A New Home Of Hope
Around me was a heavy bush, The home of different species of animals, including predators, Both of dreams and reality.
My Poetry, My Treasure
The time I deny the world, to my poetry I freely give, The most sensitive secrets I hide from my family, In the nucleus of my poetry I joyfully hide. The feelings which words cant adequately explain,
A Poem To A Poet
And so today I write to you oh fellow poet! Yes, I know this will take you by surprise For I know, you write about host of issues; From life to death, from heaven to hell,
The bush in which you hide, Has eyes, The wall, behind which you speak, Has ears,
When I Whispered My love
When I whispered my love to you from afar, You went deaf and considered it a holy lie, You ignored my calls, texts, and everything About me that you could, by chance, find:
Accept Mine Too
Accept mine too Oh God! Though I know it is not enough, For this is all that my praise-filled mouth
The Poet In Me
Oh how I miss you, dear poet in me! When I think about the time we shared, How you had kept my stick busy in the past And how you have divorced me suddenly
When the day sweeps Away the last drop of darkness, Aurora with her cool breath, Gently rising to her duties,
I Too, Sing Poetry.
I have no English honours like Brick, I am not talented as Brian Johnston, My poems dont hit like Hazel Durham's But I too, sing poetry!
Time Will Always Tell
Our tears will be no more, Our sorrows shall come to an end, Our fears will be no more Our fellows shall see us ahead,
Everyday Is Poetry
So many thoughts on my mind, About my present and the past, About my future, many I find, As some die, others continue to last.
What Would I Have Done
What would I had done, My friend If you were not alive? How would my life be like, my friend

To My Princess
And so yesterday I met her
And the sun will my witness bear,
She was on her way to the river
When suddenly I was attacked by fever,
My heart had nearly fallen out
And I could hear the sound
Yes! She was the one.
So I gave up my journey to the farm
Strengthened and crossed my arm,
I advanced towards her with courage
Though she was not alone, but with her entourage
And as I moved closer with Peter's vim,
The world suddenly appeared dim
And then I began to tremble.
Oh what a beauty with perfectness!
She has no similarity nor ...
