Treasure Island

Christian Tobechukwu Okafor

(September 4,1987 / Nnewi, Anambra State, Nigeria.)

Déjà Vu


The Curtains drawn open
The lit torch handed
The ball rolled onward
All waking me up
Thrusting me to the truth
Reality of the déjà vu.

I stand at its gate
A sigh of laden future heaved
I look up to the sky
It stares freckled blue upon me
I crane down my head
And my spirit knows it is.

Yes, the inner believes
This is where it’s meant to be
But the outer doubts it so
A tearing strain between two wholes
Two wholes but two halves
Battling for the action whistle.

But then, through the curtains
I march forth
Bearing the torch
For my rolling ball
Onto my present former land
’cause all’s a cycle of déjà vu.

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
