Essence

Life – herein I found you defined
Simplicity? Mad rush, in rat-race…
Sweats from the frets of acceptance
Mine quota of earth’s bliss

Life – living and its complexities
The universe, as polygon, and its sides?
Just the tipping elusive,
And rumbles, even in pursuit of peace

And in its leading – Life,
The placing of order, and schooling,
 Of days, nights, harmattan, and rains   
Yet chaos leads the many elements

Living the quotes,
In its unbending lexis
And some twists along
Seeking for happy endings
