Poetry: To My faceless friend

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

My faceless friend
Brought me hope and reason to live again
When hope was completely lost
And could not be found no-where
Now hope is now-here

Before the sun wipes the dew off
Every morning in the green palms
Off the cocoyam leaves,
He finds a place there for me

After last night’s downpour
The corn in the field lies prostrate
Like Muslims at salah

At the touch of the sun
And the sound of Allahu Arkbar
I know I will rise again

My faceless friend is full of love
Love in abundance beyond measures
To my faceless
I say, I care
