Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication
He places her head on his shoulder as a father
Does to his child comforting the child and he started
Talking, who told you that I do not have peace nor
Joy since we met? She answers him not a word
My life has wear a new look since you came into my life.
You have been my everyday joy, my delight
Since the day you decide to be mine, indeed
I have never had joy and peace like this before
All because we have been involved with each other.
Listen thou not to what people say, do not allow
People's words, my enemies, our enemies to weigh
You down. Remember that, a leper cannot squeeze the
Breasts of cattle to extract milk out, but lepers can
Waste the milk squeezed into the calabashes.
That's what enemies and critics do, they can destroy
But they can not build nor construct. You are my Queen
And Beauty, you are my jewel, a very rare one,
No one could ever match you in my hands and heart
Not now, not ever.
She becomes relaxed at his words, smiled,
"Are you telling me your mind?" She asks as he
Nods his head, then if you do not mind me, i
Assure you that I go no where then, I will ever be
By your side, do your will and bring you comfort
The man later replied his critics and enemies
Whether she is beautiful or nay; whether she is
Poor or nay; it's her I have chosen, it is her
In experience that gives me joy and comfort.
Her financial status is a blessing to me, in her
I find my peace, strength to carry on, she points
Targets to me to aim at.
From thenceforth let no man trouble us,
Let each person mind his or her business.
His response settles it all as he and his
Svelte damsel keeps enjoying themselves
In the beautiful garden.
