FLOWER, IN A POT

Written by: Akolade Adewunmi

FLOWER IN THE POT

Young girls,
When God made thee
He made thee with the richest soil of the earth
Where the remnant were found in the Eden 
He now planted a glorious flower in a flower pot
To dame you when all man shall stand up for you
When the world shall dance at the party
In the celebration of your regeneration.

When you are fast asleep in thy teens
Thieves came  in the form of date
And uprooted the flower out of thy ignorance 
 
 Now thy husband is asking 
Where have all the flowers gone
When God shall ask for thy account
How the dame got missing 

I searched along the corners of dating 
And researched the hooks and crannies of the street of love
Where i came late to ask in a date
About the flowers planted in the dawn of thy form
When your cry brings excitation and shouts of joy

Flowers are no more, honours are dented
The beautiful ones were all gone
In the way of unaccountable dates
Remember! Matrimony held deep respect
When flowers in the pot is exchange with 
A rings of holy matrimony.
