By Arowolo Jamiu
A dream of promising harmonies
Promoting rest and relief
Without resentment and anxiety
In pages of memorable moments.
Hopes are dashed and hang in silence
Without dreams of peace
In vehicles of memory
Heavy with purity
In the sadness of broken monody.
Yearning for Peace:
A feeling deeper than the night,
Replete with healing whispers
In pages of professed prophecies
And daily, duly rituals
With songs rooting us in union.
In a labyrinth of dreams and intimations,
For times upon times, we seek peace.
