To A Friend


CALM though unseen the presumptions of your being,
Gentle the soft speeches of your vocals-
The heart of your manliness.

HUMBLY swaying on the corridors of passion,
Unshaken by the waves of emotion-
The stance of your comeliness.

INTELLIGENTLY adorned,
Crowned with knowledgeable diadems-
The wave of your IQ-logical boldness

KINDLY swift on the corridors of peace,
Never hunting the unprecedented-
The mark of your smartness.

EVER ready to hearken,
With ears feathered into the air-
The sound of your fairness.

ASPIRING higher always
And in the boat, 'em you sail
Who your hand holds.

DEDICATED to service
Devotion to the Lord-
You stand so bold.

INSPIRING a million,
Indispensably atoned-
You lighten their load.

ENERGETICALLY fit,
Effectively influencing-
You blaze every freezing cold.

LO to you, a dedication,
Chanting hums of praises-
While your tale to the world told.

EVER forever friends-
And together forever in memory written-
Never to path the pals road.

[Dedicated to a FRIEND OF FRIEND. Though have not met, pals forever we be and upon the walls of memory your stars written indellible. CHIKE ADIELE (BAR.) ]

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
