There's blood in Gibeah's streets, a great crime has been done. A daughter of Bethlehem loudly weeps while cruel men had their fun. All through the night, you'd hear scream for God, for man, her aid to come. _ There's a woman laying at the door where her master hid from sight. At his command she'd faced the mob left to suffer through the night; He gave her up (the wife he loved), gave her up without a fight. _ There's a woman on Gibeah's ground, she lays alone submerged in pain. The dawn comes ladened with a frown bringing to light Gibeah's shame. To keep this wicked act in mind, her limbs remain to tell the tale. ---------------------------------------------------- #artlixirfresh #micropoetryfeatures #poetrypoetryoftheworld @under_shower_screams @revive_poetry #AlphaSage #poetrylovers #poetsofig #poemsporn #poems #poetssociety #poetscommunity #africanpoets #africanwriters #africanpoetry #Christian #rape #pain #Christianpoetry #africanspiritualpoetrywriterschallenge #africanpoetryfeature #writersofig #writerssociety #writersofinstagram #Nigerian #nigerianpoets #nigerianpoetry #wordgasm #inspire #followme @iamalphasage #toomanyhashtags @crown_writers_foundation

Pledge ii I don't like to explain my art. I would like you to make a meaning of yours from it. I would like you to feel it, and breathe it with your own nostrils and I hope you come out sane on the other side. #thecultivatedfool #poetry #poetsofinstagram #depth #africanpoets
"The love we give away is the only love we keep." - Elbert Hubbard At the end of the day what really matters is not how much wealth, fame, successes or power you've achieved but how much positive impact you've had in people's lives. Live not for yourself alone. Love everyone without the expectation that it would be returned. ❤ #Love #Life #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #poetry #poetsofinstagram #africanpoets #africanwriters #gml
Let's get our creative juice pumping. It's time for a Saturday creativity exercise. Let's create a story by commenting five words each. Here's how it goes. 1. One person starts. 2. The next person continues from where he/she stopped. 3. Just in case you post at the same time as someone else please delete and repost. 4. Please do not exceed five words. E.g "My eyes widened in surprise" next persons adds "as I watched my entire life” and the thread continues like that. We've done this before so let's do it again. #africanwriters #africanpoets #writegrowbecome #writersnetwork #writing #writers #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #poem #poets #poetry #poetsofig #poetsinstagram #15daywritingchallenge

The Storm part 1. It came with no warning. Tears flowing down a dead face. Pain grips the vocal cords. I'm not brave enough.
A U T U M N L E A V E S. ● I have been the main event in all the seasons of my life but moving from one season to the next feels like a reoccurring episode of a man turning into a werewolf at full moon. For me, personal growth is a familiar trauma . Bravery is the single gray hair strand that took me more than two decades and the loss of a parent to find, and when I found it, it felt like a scar from a thermal burn of confusion which I will have to carry around for the rest of my life . Many times I had hoped that the giants living in my head will become anorexic, void of psychic nutrients until they're lifeless and start to fall like gentle multicoloured rain of autumn leaves to become part of the cerebral soil in my skull ● In my grief, my brain accessed everyday like the unbalanced gait of a Guillian - Bairrè syndrome patient. I had to drag myself to numbness, a point where I could no longer feel joy, pain or anything that should kiss my senses into being . However, a genuine kindness found me through you and it felt like the sun ray finally reached beyond my tremulous sorrow and hopelessness. It touched everything that lay masked by skin, muscle, bone and self - pity . I'll admit that I had nurtured my indifference like a flower in a vase countless times in an attempt to bring balance to my desperation for love and acceptance ● Even in your absence, I still see and feel you in everything. I imagine you being with me everytime my adamic nature makes feel like an ill - raised child of circumstances, turning my lungs into sacs of sadness, regrets and grief . You were in my life for a reason, for many seasons, but if these autumn leaves could make dying look so beautiful, the least I can do is make living poetic . Even if I'll be living without you ● -----●●●LUCAS ●●●----- ● . My debut book " ...THEN I GREW WINGS " is available on Amazon.

Day5 challenge... #creativewriterschallengebytaw #beatwritersblockbytaw #africanwriter #writersofinstagram #writersofig #africanpoets #poetry #poets #poetrychallenge Dear reader, It means so much to me that you choose to read my writings (blog, poem or post). I want you to know I understand your time is precious and so would not want to waste it. However, I'm unique and different in my own way; a student of life and a follower of truth. What I hear I write, what I have learnt and proven I share, hoping that I may be able to reach out to You; who loves to read good stuff You; who is searching for the truth You; who has a deep insight and willingness to share. So let's ride
When farmers are blessed by the fall of you... When lovers are blessed by the cold that accompany... When I am sad because I am lonely... When its comes with lightning and thunder... Even if it flood our bad road... What we see often is the long/short thing With colours of rainbow on its big bow 'Umbrella'☔ The number of letters in the word never decrease... It comes at its season... It's just a four letter word 'Rain'🌧️ Its name @africanwriters @africanpoetry #CreativeWritingChallengebyTAW #BeatWritersBlockbyTAW . . . #africanpoet #africanpoets #africanwriters #africanpoetry #africanpoems #nigerianwriters #writerspocket #writersnetwork #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writersofmirakee #writer #write #raining #rain #poems #poem #poetry #poet #iwrite #whatilovedoingmost #writeroftoday #leisures
