EVOLUTION
GENIE Aug 2021
I know it's only a passing phase
But I wish it could stop now
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I've given up on giving up
I know am slowly evolving
Becoming a better being
But this pain is too much
The pain of purification is the strength of sanctification.

SPLIT SECOND LOVE
GENIE Aug 2021
In a split second, I had it all and lost it all
In a split second, you kissed me and bit me
In a split second you built me and destroyed me
In a split second you healed me and killed me
In a split second you made me and marred me
In a split second, you showed me love and blinded me
In a split second you gave it all and took it all
It takes a split second to hurt, how long till I heal?
Does healing take forever?
Does healing take forever?
Or another split second.

A DESPERATE LETTER
GENIE Aug 2021
Dear Genie, where are you. Please come back. I seem to have lost it all. All that you earned. The jobs, the morale, the charisma, the devil may burn for all i care, the energy to exercise, thr passion for God, the passage to God, the craziness, more painfully, the love and respect you earned and commanded. You were what i would call "THE PERSONALITY"

Dear Genie how did you ever do it? At a time when we had nothing no money, no love, no charisma, no morale, no passion, overcaring, zero respect, no vibes, nothing. You came like a storm and took over.
You changed the climate and changed the landscape, you showed me what could be where nothing had been.
You dared to dream, you dared anything that dared to threaten our dream. You went for it against all odds, till you achieved what i once called "THE IMPOSSIBLE"

Dear Genie, you were never weary, never tired. Never gave up, never surrendered, never angry, never intimidated. You were what people would call "THE PERFECT STORM"
But then i felt thought I'd take a break find some peace and start to care. The little i gained, i thought I'd share and i thought i could do without you. I thought i could be "THE BETTER ONE"

Dear Genie, Its better said how dearly i paid. The pain i faced for loving, the hurt i endured for caring, the loss i faced for sharing. Beaten, disgraced, betrayed, framed, tamed. I became "THE DEFAMED"

Dear Genie, Its been a long and tiring journey. I feel lost and alone...worse, lonely. I need you badly. I'm sacred to dare to dream again, afraid. I feel broken, worse, shattered. All i loved and trusted have betrayed me. Even your God seems silent. I feel like "THE ABANDONED"

Arise again o Genie...arise i pray thee. Let your energy course through me again i pray thee. Not through some external stimulant as before, but as an inane genius within.
Come as a hurricane and tear apart my fears. Build again my fort, and cut my losses short.
I've still got one thing though the music which you birthed God's gift to us back then. I have fed it nurtured it, and now it crawls and calls me "THE FATHER"

OUR SON NEEDS YOU BROTHER, OUR MUSIC NEEDS YOU, OUR FUTURE NEEDS YOU. I WANT TO BE CALLED "THE LEGEND"
Desperate times calls for desperate letters.

Champions In Paradise
GENIE Jul 2021
My phone almost crash
But even if it crashes, it gets back up
Let's get back up, More than we used to
I feel like am dying
Is not like am afraid of death
You're worth going to hell for
But then my only dying wish will be,
To die, smiling in your arms
Grant this dying man one last wish
Cos only then will I rise, a champion in paradise
Champions In Paradise

LOST
GENIE May 2021
Darkness, A slight headache.
I opened my eyes, More darkness.
Last I remembered was drinking merrily
From the cup you offered
I trusted you, and the friendship you offered
And it's got me LOST.

The Pain Philosophy
GENIE Apr 2021
HERE'S MY PHILOSOPHY ON PAIN:
If your daily bread is greater than your daily goal,
Constant pain tames your wild soul
Some pains are brutal but necessary evil
If you're to conquer the devil
Be careful, be careful still
Some pains are completely avoidable, unnecessary evil
Arising from lack of will
IT'S JUST A Philosophy, JUDGE IT AS YOU WILL.

TRUE WORLD
GENIE Apr 2021
Where is it gone
The true world
Where truth is like the sun
Liberal, a formidable lord
I dare not call this world a lie
But as days goes by and by
The fountains of truth dry and dry
The spirits of trust die and die
And I can't help but wonder and ponder?
Where o where, is the true world gone?
It takes unconditional love to make the world true again

Could Be
GENIE Apr 2021
This could be me
Holding your hands walking naked in eden
This could be me
Kissing you deeply for every step of ten
This could be us
Our love boundless, Our passion bottomless
Turning deserts to Gardens
And Hell to Eden.
Yes it's us, but only in my imagination and pen,
Sure it's us, but only in my poems.

I LOVE POETRY
GENIE Apr 2021
Its my life and passion

Others may live for love
Or whatever else they want
I live for poetry
And it lives in me

Bring It On
GENIE Apr 2021
The last blow had me sprawling and gasping
The pain seemed drawn from eternity to everlasting
Deep from my soul, it stings
More devastating than any mood swings
Rest brother Rest The ground says
Rise brother rise the air says
Fly brother fly the sky says
Any last words life says
Before the next wave of uncertain days
I would've listened to the ground
But that's against my adventurer's ways
I've come too far for any restful stays
Any last words, life again says
As I rise from the ashes of the fiery days
Bring it on my soul says
You can't stop me from seeing the brighter days
Which lays beyond the sky
The fiery days shed my excesses
Stripped my excuses.
Bring it on my body says
You can't stop me from exploring space.
Here's to brighter days ahead

PAIN POET
GENIE Mar 2021
It takes me great pain to write
And when I think am healing and getting it right
Life shines a blinding light
And then absolute darkness
To find my way, I grab a pen
Its inks mark my path
Each time I get twice stronger
Life gives double the strength
Life oh life
Can't you teach me in another way?

And for the first time, he thirsted home

STORMS
GENIE Mar 2021
Here come the storms
Ripping me one by one
Making open my worms
Fears long conquered and gone
Here comes the storms
Ripping me off in tiny devastating bits
Weakening my very gums
The fabrics that binds courage to my wits
Here comes the storms
And when I thought it couldn't get worse
The night fell in all its darkest forms
The sun feared to leave its dorms
Courage lost its life force
Pain took a different course
And when I was sure it can never get worse
I faced man's greatest loss
The loss of hope in oneself
Here comes the storms
I hope they'll be scared of me
Cos finally I lost myself...

ON GOD
GENIE Feb 2021
I AM LOST BUT NOT WITHOUT FOCUS
I MAY HAVE LOST MY WAY BUT NOT MY MIND
AS LONG AS I REMAIN IN GOD'S LOCUS,
MY WAY WILL FIND ME AS SURELY AS DARKNESS FIND THE BLIND
AM ON GOD

Spark a flame 🌞
GENIE Jan 2021
Let love be a candle
And our every act a flame
For everyone helpless you cuddle
You spark a flame
Everytime you help someone in a struggle
You intensify the flame
For when darktime comes and you struggle
You will know no shame
Cos the universe will spark you a flame
That bears your insignia and name
You'll never be the same
All because you sparked a flame☀

Dream Time Again
GENIE Jan 2021
Its that time again
To hope and dream again
To dream so big it seems mundane
To echo my  dreams so much and look insane
To fiddle pain and heartbreak again
I don't care what spirits lay atop the mountain
I will climb again
Cos up there is a fountain
I must drink again
And should I fall ten times again,
I'll rise twelve times again
Till every loss becomes a gain,
I will dream again
Hey guys, thank you all for your support

Who then says poets aint gods
In our own world made by our own words.
Poets RULE.

BORN TO FLY
GENIE Aug 2020
I wondered why I couldn't run like them but walk stiff
I realized the day they pushed me off that cliff
That I wasn't born to walk, I was born to fly
Born to fly

One step is when I love you
One step is when you love me

LOVE O LOVE(II)
GENIE Aug 2020
Love oh love
Love unpredictable love
What is this game you play
Why shock me this way
How do i sing this song
My God you're too young
Yet your words so strong
You said you felt it since long
And kept quiet all along
But you're way too young
How do i play this game
Which may my image defame
How do you say no
When deep within you know
This is no fake show
Love o love
Love unpredictable love
Help me out i pray
Cos i want you to stay
When someone unbelievably younger says unbelievably crazy things to you about You........🆘🆘🆘🆘🆘🆘

Love oh love (I)
GENIE Aug 2020
Love oh love
Love true love

Hide from me no more,
Take me by surprise
Let me seek no more
Lest unbelief arise
Love oh love
Love true love
I dont care how
Just find me now.

Spreading LOVEz
GENIE Aug 2020
I feel it coming
I hear them calling
The silence is breaking
Their whispers less confusing
The darkness,its voice soothing
The abyss, its voice  compelling
The void seductively inviting
The dark calls my name
The abyss my eulogy proclaim
The void sweetens my nickname
I long to answer and turn
But there is that which i must do
I must this cold brave,
and this war win
I must this light shine,
and this heart share
I must spread this LOVEz
Maybe after doing this, I will answer them
But i got a LOVEz to spread
GENIE Jul 2020
I did it,
They asked for an explanation,
I explained.
They didnt believe.
I did it again,
They asked me to explain again
I kept silent
They believed.
The silence sounds convincing.

THE TRESHOLD
GENIE Jul 2020
TOO MUCH PAIN OF LOSS LEADS TO LOSS OF PAIN
TOO MUCH PAIN MAKES THE SOUL NUMB WITH STRAIN
IF YOU CROSS THE TRESHOLD OF LOSS
YOU CROSS THE TRESHOLD OF PAIN
FOR HOW DO YOU FEEL PAIN
IF YOU FEEL NO LOSS
THE ONETHING YOU SHOULD NEVER LOSE IS YOURSELF
LOSING ONESELF BREAKS THE STRONGEST OF US
ITS A FORBIDDEN LANE,
A TRESHHOLD TO NEVER CROSS
ITS THE ANCHOR AGAINT VIOLENT TOSS
ITS THE ROOT AGAINST THE HURRICANE
THE CRUX OF THE CROSS
PLS DONOT LOSS
FOR WITHOUT IT,YOU CANT BEAR THE PAIN.
Wrote this at a time i lost it all.

STRANGER
GENIE Jun 2020
I looked in the mirror and saw a stranger
Rugged, Handsome, reeking of danger
Not the Vulnerable boy everyones uses
An adventurer who chooses his truces
I looked the mirror and i saw a stranger
Whose words and acts of thunder
Made even mama awe and wonder

Tale of a survivor
GENIE Jun 2020
They broke my legs, i learnt to run with my hands
They took my hands,i learnt to fly
They broke my trust
I learnt to believe
I gave them love they gave me pain
I discovered that pain,
Is the fuel passion demands
They blind my eyes,i learnt vision
They blocked my ears,i learnt to think
They took my body,i engaged my soul
They gave me scars,i saw the stars
They left me broken
I evolved molten
They left me for dead
I learnt to survive
And now i can roar
As i soar
I am a survivor
And this is my tale
Just reminiscing

7 wise men
GENIE Jun 2020
I got 7 wise men,
Locked up in my den
Whatver comes my way
They always got something to say
Let me tell you thier names
What
Why
Who
Where
When
Which
How
Whatever comes your way
Ask this men
Ask them all
Not leaving one
Ask them over again
They always have something to say
You know them but do you really consciously engage them,
All of them?

COLORS
GENIE Jun 2020
I don't do colors
I do brother
So I see them traitors
Brother killing brother
It boils my very blood
When we all got one color
RED the color of God

Hiding pain
GENIE Jun 2020
I do my best to hide my pain
They see my eyes wild and grand
They say I'm insane
I congratulate myself amid their reprimand
I've  successfully contained my pain
They never understand
So, I never explain
They can't stop my campaign brand
Neither can the pain

I CARE
GENIE Jun 2020
I see them and I feel
Like am one of them
When people look they see
Torn barefoot battered people
When I look I see
Resilience,strength and determination
To be absolutely free
They are called different names
Coz they are the different ones
Lunatics,saddist,psychos,wackos
But deep inside you something echoes
All this could have been avoided
If only someone cared enough
Once upon a time they were well
With no one to tell
Their struggles and hell
And cos no one cares enough
They were consumed by that hell
If only someone cared enough
I see them and I see no condemnation
But I feel an obligation
Like an alpha to his pack of rabid wolves
To seek their redemption
perhaps if I cared enough
if I loved them enough
There can still be redemption
Albert Einstein said"there is no genius without a hint of madness"
So if someone had cared
All madmen could have been
"Mental  geniuses"
I see them and I see hope
Cos I TRULY CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
I CARE!!!
It's about time someone cares
Away with the "I'm fine" template"
Show real care

The death paradox
GENIE Jun 2020
To die is to live
To die is to become one's true self,
A living soul, Immortal
To die is to understand pain
To die is to embrace pain
To die is to evolve
To die is to never die again
If Jesus hadn't died
How would he have resurrected???

Dear death
GENIE Jun 2020
As I lay in your cold arms I have one last wish
Don't let her know I laid my life for her
Cos she'd throw it back at me,
And with lots of curses

Where words replace guns
But beware my dearest ones
Words do more damage than guns

Lover (I
GENIE Jun 2020
The sun asked to be my lover
The moon threatened to leave
The stars all knew better
No matter how much I need a lover,
I'll never betray a friend
Still, my heart aches for a lover

SAME OLD BEAST
GENIE Jun 2020
We all could've sworn he had changed
Clean shaven,hair made,nails cut
He no longer look savaged or deranged
Civilized,smart,cute,curt
Yet he kneels on a man,
And rapes a woman
His civilization brings global warming
Instant disasters without warning
He preaches freedom
Yet enslaves with wisdom
Outside,he's no longer savage,
But inside is pure hate and rage
Man for all his advancement is still man
New looks,Same old beast.
Jun 2020 · 36
Dear God(II)

Now,more than ever.
Ain't we all tired of the corona??

Alone moments
GENIE Jun 2020
When life leads us through deserts and mountains alone
It's for self discovery,
It's for healing and victory
Alone moments are self defining moments eg--an unborn in the womb
