THE BLUNT TRUTH

THE BLUNT TRUTH

Live life for the memories

In the end that’s all we are

The blunt truth; all I really needed

Tho I despised every sound

I heard;

I danced to the naked truth.

I found purpose today

With great joy I leaped

Like a little boy so excited

To see his father;

After so many nights away from home

While pleasure’s lies kept me bound.

That beautiful rose flower

With colors of sacrifice

And a radiance like no other

Love was all I saw; my mother’s love

The transition is a debt to we must pay

A wiseman said to me today.

Comfort me with these words

Give me solace; peace of mind

As I weep with the broken hearted

In celebration of a life well spent

Tears strolling down my cheeks.

Like the rains in the southern Nigeria.

I found purpose today.

I found the bitter truth

The unpleasant aroma from life’s pot

And I made the world a better place

I left it much better than I met it.

I found purpose today…

The sad truth.

SAMUEL INALEGWU IGBAGO
