Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Life a mystery

What is so kindly to define?
So glamorous to insight
The most incredible of nature
So sophisticated for understanding

I came but a babe
To understand in complexity
Considering why and always why,
Things are, the way I see

It is a field of recruitment
The tougher the stronger,
It's survival of the fittest
With so much competition

We are made of what we hear,
But known of what we say.
Between the understanding of this line
Lies the difference between men.

Favor, some says it's of God
I understand it's of the cheats
Life crowns success so unevenly, that
I wish I could charge life for nepotism
