CLOUDED (A POEM) – by Femi Olabisi

27 Jul

It is a generational maxim

that life is a mystery unknown;

a journey beset with dreadful forebodings;

a variegated landmark of discordant terrains

 

I was born and bred

I was cultured to reason

that life is a nutty riddle

indefinitely clouded to discern

and beyond mortals dissecting

 

My heyday was a nurturing

a platitude of facts of life

a catechism of what lies ahead

a baptism into realities

 

But my libertinage to adulthood

my transformation to real realities

pictures a world of banalities;

where sacrifice is never measured

and sycophancy ever treasured

 

My ontology is totally fogged

my being lethargic to things around

because the world is clouded

and forever a mystery unknown.
