Pleasant blossoms lx




Behold the miracle, the bodies of Charity has regenerated
In all the lands that got a share of her twelve parts

Like a stick of cassava stuck in well ploughed ridges

Like a grain of beans broadcast in a watered garden

The mystery of the undying end to her existence

Lies in the kindness imbued in humanity for ages

And in the resurging compassion of the holier eyes

And even in the indelible marks of the worship of God

The quest of the future of her children

Is fund in a swan song of poverty and ignorance

And in the dirge of under development of nations

And even in the prophecy of boom in poorer lands

The rebels have repented in the states of Liberia

The black gold has surfaced in the reaches of Ghana

The die is cast in the confines of worrisome Sudan

The flames are guttering in the cities of Zimbabwe

The refugees shall return home to green pastures

The pastors shall rise up and revamp the nations

The humble seeds of Charity sown in our hearts

Shall manifest in look alikes of greatness and pride
