Verities of nature. Poem by HAKAM ABUBAKAR


The night will always
be followed by a morning
And nature shall always
assume its verities
i say a rift is bound
between the closest souls
But nothing is a rift
for those souls
that to themselves
remain truehearted
i have seen youth fade away
snatching treasures from men
Keeping the verities of nature
i have seen loved ones leave
leaving memories only
So to give verisimilitude
to the verities of nature
i gave real credence
to the verities of nature
When i saw pulchritude
dwindle away
like the setting sun
from the countenance
of yesterday''s stunners
Strange and real
is nature with its verities.
