Wisdom is the principal thing;
therefore get wisdom:
and with all thy getting
get understanding.
-Proverbs 4:7

Conception of sounds
Births beautiful words
Which crawl into sentences.
Sentences walk into paragraphs.
Paragraphs into unimaginable passages
Which paint pictures on the walls
Of our minds.
Creating emotions, lessons,
Experiences among others.

Gone were the days
When it was a count of plus
To eat in the bowls of a grey hair.
Today, stress stresses the hair
To paint itself greyish before
It becomes grey.

Examination tests understanding.
Ignorant makes you embrace
The cold arms of Had-I-Known.
Meanwhile, it does not give birth
To any meaningful progress.

Edem (Fodeka) Kusorgbor

  1. I didn’t understand anything ooo.
    Is it a form of comparison between the yester-years and the current generation?
