beyond a blind life

Written by: Yahaya Chadi

the depth of life had drawn 
me
and sunk me deep down, 
under the sea.

I had driven my way 
through, and never thought 
it will cease fore-gone, 
forever.

It had seems, yet I see
I doubt counting days with a 
wife,
I failed days and yet won 
grace,
I had wronged choice and 
still it yields rights,
Had it been without God, 
where will I be?

I had seen something before 
yesterday,
i have been alone even up 
today,
what has that got to do, in 
the name of me?

Once back in life again,
The road to my Lord was at 
night,
I lead my ways with the 
stick...
It has neither been ashamed 
nor blessed.
But I got my way beyond a 
blind life.
