Poetry: Flames by Olayiwola Faith Adedolapo

Haiku (Flames)

 

Loneliness and bashful

Draws from all envy and frights

Till hearts melts like wax

 

Friendship and boldness

Makes us walk as an army

And speak as sole being

 

Norm shields man from the

Truth and makes law a mockery

To all who hears it

 

We beg to live and

Find protection on the street

Still death finds us fit

 

Rain washes away

Dirt, pains, heats and leaves us to

Shed away our being

 

Desiring and lust

Love, an enticing feeling

That drives man insane

 

So when my thoughts shall

Rise up to the other side

Will I then say Flames
