Best Chukwuemeka Mbah Poems

+ Fav Poet


I'm often repeated and hardly defeated

Could be good, bad or ugly

it all depends on what you make of me

I run a full course when fully encrypted

I am Habit


I can make you soar sky high

As well as fuel your eyes to cry

Can lead you to great profit

or lay you down underneath

Its still me Habit


A friend to both the achiever and mediocre

The very small stream that makes a river

What's your flavour? I make and mar

Can keep you redundant or take you far


Call me Habit

Be firm with me and you'll achieve a great feat

Be easy with me and you'll be wasted six feet

    Oh, I see that you don't have soup mail set up..You asked a question what inspired me to write the poem about out on the porch in the freezing cold..Well, I go out on the porch for inspiration but had not been out in awhile for it has been uncomfortable out there so the inspiration came from there..Sara
