Hi. I'm Ehi, a poet whose works are greatly affected by her faith in Jesus the Christ, love, nature and the world around her. You will enjoy my poetry(yeah! I'm telling you) but most of all, they'll cause you to sit back and think. So what can I say? Read. Learn. Enjoy. And I am definitely not opposed to comments, votes, likes and messages. In fact, I'd love them. ;) more »

Ehi Abah Poems
The paths we take now seem to part And our feet can naught but take the cue We've come thus far both hand in hand But feet and hand are both with one
The Safe Haven
The friend crossed his heart The promise got broken The builders built The city's now in ruins
Of Such Matters
We had dared to hope... We supported. Campaign chants in the streets
...The labour pains ceased The new born shrieked The shepherds bowed And the angels sang
Why We Cry
When we hug ourselves and give in to wrenching sobs It's not as though we imagine them in the depths of hell When our red-rimmed eyes still pour out an ocean It's not because they died too young to be great
An Ode To What Never Was
I loved you so much I let you go Or maybe I loved me too much to hold on You'd planned our end before we began And I feared my heart was too fragile
I Loved You To The Death
I loved you to the death The hope of us being one Make me keep my face set While the whips pierced deeper than a gun
Stars At Dawn
I woke that day to the stars To the stars of yesternight Twinkling in the dark black sky As a coy bride on her first night
It's not the nine-month journey That makes you a mother It's not the tickles given Right underneath the arms
Graveyard Of Stones
Some are lowered in glasses made of wood Arrayed in white and gold As if they could take along those with them Others in boxes of wood
Dancing To The Devil's Tune
Sweat beads the size of rocks waist beads move in a flow See her revibrate with zest Her feet moving with the rest
The Friendly Fiend
The smiley face in every closet The sweetest voice in everyone's heart The generous soul in every want The presence there when you want him near.
Comments about Ehi Abah
The paths we take now seem to part
And our feet can naught but take the cue
We've come thus far both hand in hand
But feet and hand are both with one
So, leave we must with heavy hearts
As life, it seems, gives no other choice.
A friend you've been in need
A faithful friend in deed
Sticking closer than even a brother
And it pains me so to see you go
It hurts me so to know I'll go
Yet, hope I must to find a friend
Though, none will fit as snugly as you.
I leave dry-eyed, aye, I do
And entreat you to do the same
For, though, my heart ...
