What i Can't Help


In all sincerity
it is a pathetic pity
I merely offer sympathy
with such velocity
this sadness born out of the blues
that decides to levy itself on you

in this fixed still-life
please sense my illness
Accept my downsides
Show that sympathy

I stand to lose a pet
and a rare gem
To the hands of doubts and reservations
Show that sympathy

I stand to lose the only one I cherish
My broken heart is yet to mend
Show that sympathy

I stand to lose a fortune
my voice can’t sing a decent tune
Show that sympathy

I am lost in love with you
Show that sympathy

My dearest, Blessing Okon
Whatever maybe your doubts
Show that sympathy

These are the things I could not say
Just as my heart is blooded,
The tears from my eye is grounded
I love you with everything in me
Show that sympathy

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
