Pain, Faith And Hope – MOJEED AKINMADE

With an active septic vein
This hot salty liquid flows
Burning and hurting my cheeks
Down to my pillow till it’s wet

Up in the morning to a dull day, 
The brightness hidden under a shadow
Sun held at bay by the moon
Cold breeze sent shivers down my spine

Up and ready to go
Finding strength in my inner man
Struggling to make things right
Let it not be said that I didn’t try

Coming to terms with reality
Life chosed my identity
Torn between pain, hope and faith
My destiny I took at hand

Facing this anomaly called pain
Transient yet it lingers in its departure
Watching how my faith would tend
Within the confines of a meekly hope

Hope reveals beauty of days to come
Faith says I’ll move mountains
The Purification of my existence
Life took a different turn

Unravelling of the future
My fears are gone
No more wet pillows
Happy and confident is my definition

A future of splendour
Experience of heaven on Earth
As the sun gets to the horizon
Lighting up my world

A future of hope, 
Soaring high like a falcon
The skies are fair for the flight
The spirit killeth, the letter gives life

A future of faith
As opposed to doubts and limitations
Bore out my sword like a warrior
Taking down the stumps of past pains

Pain, faith and hope
One giving rise to the other
Leading me to a future of pleasure
Finally enwrapping the treasure which lies in the wait
