I am two steps away from addiction
One step is when I love you
One step is when you love me
One step without the other brings desperation
Which is one step away from frustration
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?

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.
GENIE May 2020
I long for my old guitar
I'm no rock or pop star
But a broken soul
Seeking to be whole
I long to play my old guitar
Alone on the road with mud for tar
In the shack building I'll stay awhile
Where life is no more than a mile
I long for my old guitar
Nothing wrong with the new one named peter
But I'm one with my old guitar
My excesses cannot be shun by peter
I long to play my old guitar
It's old tune still without mar
Tells me if I've come this far
Just a mile, I'll touch the star
I long for my old guitar
My old friend and adviser
Whatever it says, I'll say yes sir
And it tells me to find glory in my scar
Though the storms around me roar
Though the waves against me soar
Though life be cold as Mars
Though I be falling from the effiel tower
Though u be caged with a wild boar
Though strength fails,and I have no power
Though I have A newer better peter
Though life breaks me with terrible shatter
No matter what, it's no matter,
Even if condemned as a matyr
I'll still long for my old guitar
Whose tune unlike that of Peter
Says truth that's bitter
Life's a mile, then hereafter
Checkpoints are chaos and disaster
No more than a millimeter
These checkpoints may your character alter
Or even make you better
How you handle them,says what comes after
If you must win and become master
Defy these gods here, and hereafter
FEAR,HATE,MISTRUST,EGO,PRIDE,ANGER
THOUGHTS THAT MAKE OUR MIND CLUTTER
THOUGHTS OF ESCALATING DISASTER
THINGS THAT MAY HAOOEN, BUT SURELY NEVER
If we think positively time and time after
Think right now, you'll do right later
Think wrong now, and you're a time rigged disaster
Which happens sooner or later
There are things you can't alter
So beware what you sacrifice on what altar
Find what your will always muster
Your life depends on it like water
Never forget God, never ever,
A brother, foe, or sister
Who helped you in disaster
Disaster may be but a nanometer
Many miles it has shattered
Many more it will shatter
Still it can make you better
If only you listen to my old guitar
It's tunes sweet, truth bitter
You will emerge better,
Now and in the hereafter.
I love my guitar though I know not how to play it well yet.
I love poetry,and hope to master its every set
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
GENIE Jun 2020
Scripture lesson:
And God said let there be you, and behold, there was you
And behold you were a poet
And God looked down on heaven and smiled,
And saw that you were good
Even your flaws
GOD PLANNED YOU
GENIE May 2020
To be well unknown is to be well respected,
To be known is to be respected
To be absolutely unknown is to be without regard or respect,
To be absolutely known commands no respect
GENIE May 2020
Dear friends
If tears is the antidote to pain
What is the antidote to love?
GENIE Feb 2020
The curse of pain
The curse of overflowing tears
The curse of paralyzing fears
The curse of true love
The curse of being different
The course of dejection
The curse of joy
The curse of pride
The curse of self-expression
The curse of resilience
The curse of soul baring
And
The curse of immortalization
All these are a poet's curse
To these curses I am doomed
But I need no cure
I am blessed to be doomed
I am doomed to be a blessing
Cos I am blessed to be a poet
Dunno about you though???
Being a poet ain't child play
Respect them
If you think otherwise
You're welcome to try
Dedicated to Every poet
GENIE Mar 2021
WHATEVER YOU FEEL,
JUST WRITE
FOR THE WORDS YOU WRITE TODAY
WILL GUIDE YOUR PATH TOMORROW
MAYBE THAT OF YOUR CHILDREN TOO
OR SOME DEEPLY HOPELESS FELLOW
IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYWAYS,
JUST WRITE
GENIE May 2020
The storms arose and rains poured
And I ran to shelter someplace
I wouldn't have ran if it didn't rain so sore
And I found me in a better place.
Sometimes, troubles are really blessings in disguise
GENIE Feb 2020
From the day I told her I was crazy about her,
She did all to hurt
Fell in love with a mutual friend
To keep me at bay
If only I had my way
I would make it end
Not their relationship which is hot,
But my love for her
Cos I'm I bleeding for nothing
Bleedingfornothing Lovehurts
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
GENIE May 2020
I won't break again
I've lived so long with pain
I learnt to seek it's gain
Scars my skin may stain
I won't break again
I've broken before,
More than once for sure
I've crawled on all four
I've found pain's cure
I won't break again
Life has dealt harshly
I'd have sold my soul gladly
No more will I break again
I have been beaten yes, broken
Left to die in the wild open
I learnt to evolve, become molten
Mouth sealed,mind open
I won't break again
I've been battered not shattered
Shattered not tattered
Backstabbed, gutted, guttered
Living became all that mattered
Never will I break again
TO LIVE IS TO LOVE
TO LOVE IS TO EVOLVE
THE FIRST STEP IS SELF LOVE
THE TRUEST LOVE IS GOD'S LOVE
I won't break again
Not cos I'm immune to pain
NOT ALL WHO SMILE IS SANE.
But cos I GAT GOD ON MY LANE,
MUDANE DEFINES SANE
INANE DEFINES INSANE
I stroke the lion's mane
Smiling though I'm deep in pain
Smiling though I feel insane
But WITH GOD ON THIS LANE
Those SCARS DONT STAIN
They God's love retain
And in that I find gain
YET, IF IN MY PAIN SOMEONE REDEMPTION GAINS,
LET GOD BREAK ME AGAIN
ITS ALWAYS WORTH THE PAIN.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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
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
Champions In Paradise
Champions In Paradise
GENIE Feb 2020
Of what I used to be,
I'm now a shadow
Yet the brightest rainbowūüĆą
Compared to this shadow,
Is a shade of what colorful should be
Better to be a colorful shadow
Than be a dull rainbow
I set out to be a colorful rainbow
Hope and survival magnified
But I became a colorful shadow,
Hope and survival personified
So fear not if today I sorrow,
For tomorrow,
I'll be happy to the marrow
All poets are colorful shadows
I wrote this thinking bout all I thought I would be, yet happy to be me, what I'm really meant to be
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
GENIE Feb 2020
I've conquered sadness
I've conquered madness
I've conquered laziness
I've conquered darkness
I've conquered mountains
I've conquered pains
I've conquered the insane
I've conquered the impossible
I've conquered the irresistible
I've conquered unbelief
I've conquered unrelief
I've conquered rejection
I've conquered perfection
I've conquered fame
I've conquered shame
I've conquered lust
I've conquered distrust
I've conquered reason
I've conquered treason
I've conquered my fears
I've conquered tears
I've conquered dark years
I've conquered lonely days
I've conquered errant ways
I've conquered erratic sways
I've conquered hate
I've conquered fate
I've conquered stress
I've conquered distress
I haven't conquered love
I've conquered nothing
If you gat no love you gat natin
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.
GENIE May 2020
Don't fail me now darkness,
Save me from Light's threatening blindness
Dankness I need your touch
The heat of the day is too much
Darkness don't you fail me now,
Please don't fail me now
GENIE May 2020
I salute you o darkness father of night and light
I salute you o night, Savior from burning light
If light is as friendly as said
Why do we cry at night,
The shame we faced in daylight
There is no shame in darkness
If darkness is as cruel as said,
Why do we seek solace in darkness
When the days rage with craziness
If light is as friendly as said
Why do we wet our night pillows
With tears of deep sorrows
Why do we express ourselves at night,
As we truly are,weak,though strong
What we do in day light
Is mostly show-off
What we do at night
Is the real stuff
Search yourself and you will see,
You trust the darkness more than the light
GENIE May 2020
I loved again,
I lived again,
I died again.
I'll live again, if only to die again
If I die times again,
You'll never understand my pain
So I'm dead again,
For you again.
Will you live again, if only to die again
GENIE May 2020
I came to war,not to settle a score
I thirst more souls, give me more
I am death knocking a stranger's door
Only I didn't expect finding you, worse, leaving you
You were the death of me, you were the life of me
A life far away from where you stay
To roam the earth and be the death
Increase the distance leave nothing to chance
I found you too soon on a dark afternoon
That you were my death is as sure as death
That you were my wife,as sure as life
But not anymore, I love you no more
DEAD MEN SHOW NO LOVE.
Just felt like writing something
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
GENIE Jun 2020
DEAR FUTURE ME,
BE NOT PROUD OF KNOWLEDGE
IF YOURE PROUD OF KNOWLEDGE
YOU'LL RASHLY SHOW OFF KNOWLEDGE
IF YOU RASHLY SHOW OFF KNOWLEDGE,
YOU SPILL SECRETS
WHEN YOU SPILL SECRETS
YOU'RE  VULNERABLE
WHEN YOU'RE VULNERABLE
YOU'RE ATTACKED
WHEN YOU'RE ATTACKED
YOU HURT

BUT YOU NEED NOT LEARN THE HARD WAY
SO, DEAR FUTURE ME, LEARN FROM ME AND MY MISTAKES.
A SERIOUS NOTE TO FUTURE ME
GENIE Apr 2018
Dear God,its been so long,
been praying for too long,
never knew I'd be this strong.
what's happening dear God,
have u forgotten ur promise n word,
to be my saviour n lord,
save from this sword ur ward,
wield by ur enemies o lord.
I've been faithful n patient,
at every chance,I've been serious.
not saying am pure or righteous,
but I fast in length at lent.
lord this war is hotter and hotter,
am tempted by  the tempter's offer,
father u know how much I suffer,
pour blessings into my quarter.
have you left me to rotten,
have you your mercy forgotten,
have you lost your sympathy,
Look upon me,I pray,with pity.
Find me lord for am lost,
find me lord lest I rust,
seeing am made of dust,
Find me now at all cost.
I have been through so much pain,
Lord my morale is slain.
gat natin to live for again,
unless u gimme some rain.
Its a dry and tough terrain,
I'm getting more than my bargain,
pls father send me some rain,
That I might live again.
the call of a patient soul
GENIE Jun 2020
You set the world know fire
Yet people die of cold
Great power you unfold
Greatest Messiah,
If you will sentence is to cold hell,
Pls do it with a loving hug
We need your mercy dearest father
Now,more than ever.
Ain't we all tired of the corona??

Dear Rachel,
         The hell you gave me in form of love,is the very Flame that purified my vulnerable soul.
             Thanks
                          Love,, Genie
GENIE May 2020
Dear Rachel,
           I know you not too well,we've only had a few days,
of pain
and hell.
I've fallen and lost my ways
Years down, I stand again
and stand well,
ready to move on
But I only want to move on with you.
GENIE May 2020
.............Dear Rachel,...............
                     I thought it would be punishment coming back for you, but its horror to live without you..............................

Dear Rachel,
  ............................I saw you in the arms of another, and I felt angry....................................................

GENIE Jun 2020
My dearest angel called Rachel,
.......................................Finally,
I let you go with lots of ***** n drugs
                     Tags of a resilient soul
Drifting to cold Pluto,the cloud nine
Knowing you can never be mine
           Seeking solace,to be made whole
...Yet the slightest whisper of my name on your lips,
.....I'll be there like I never left......................................................
GENIE May 2020
Don't bother knowing me if you don't love me,
You'll only know the bad part of me
Don't bother loving me if you don't know me,
You'll only be sad with me
GENIE May 2020
Dont give in to that angel when he tells you to leave me
I may be a devil but you know me better
Don't give in to that angel, it's your soul he's after,
Don't give in,you're safer with me
The devil you know,.........
GENIE Jun 2020
I had a dream, I got everything I wanted
Except the love that left me haunted
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
GENIE Jun 2020
I sometimes envy the dead,
I most times envy the unborn
GENIE May 2020
Have you ever wished insanity,
Only to get upgraded sanity
Have you ever wished death,
Only to get super health
Have you ever wished to be buried,
Only on love's wing to be carried
Have you ever looked forward to the devil
Only to look back to see God
God is always faithful,
For this I'm eternally grateful.
I practically wished myself these,
But God had other plans
GENIE Feb 2020
You made me high with you
And left me to Waterloo
I thought this love was true
You'd forever be my boo
I was wrong at this too
I'm high,I know not what I do
I knew I was taking too much of you
Like a faithful addict,I wanted more of you
Like a priest loves his voodoo
Despite its dangers and taboo
I found me craving you
Just as you came out of the blue,
You left,and left no clue
I knew you'd go,yet I took no cue
And as alcohol leaves pain in its wake
You left disaster in your wake
I tried to drown in the lake
But I couldn't for hope's sake
Even though I knew it was fake
I won't see you again whatever path I take
Loving you was a **** mistake
If chanced to my destiny remake
I'll gladly repeat the **** mistake
Love they say last for ever
A true lover mourns for ever
T'was stupid talk before you came over
Now,I'm eternally hungover
I'm in pain,I'm in pain
Yet what matters most is that I see you again
And if I don't see you again
I'll gladly be eternally hungover
Straight from my heart
To the one girl who broke my heart without even knowing it
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.
_Genie

You expected the worst from me,
So did i
You never expected such progress

Fear not my dearest ones
For out of the ashes of the corona
Will rise a new world order
Where words replace guns
But beware my dearest ones
Words do more damage than guns
GENIE Feb 2020
I have found myself
But the self I found
Even i myself
Am profoundly Astound
And of this astounding self
I am infinitely proud
Surprise yourself everyday
The world will never get a chance at you again

I'd love to join your group
For this century's soup
Prepared for great minds
Such in this group one finds

Ain't here to show skills
But give you thrills
Just gimme a chance
I won't prank your plans

Didn't come by you by accident
This request is not an incident
That you think upon this
Gives my soul bliss

I bring from a far land
A potent magic wand
I bring to all&sundry
The bliss of poetry
So let me in this group
Serve this delicious soup
Meant for great minds
Such as here one finds
Just flexing

Hell is not a bad place after all
It sure does enlighten
It won't be for long afterall
We'll get to heaven
GENIE Feb 2020
Hell means a lot
A place for the condemned
Burning fiery red hot
A place God's wrath descend
Hell scares a lot
No one wants heat
Life opened the gates of hell
I had to walk through it
And I actually liked it
Hell is where legends are formed
The greater the heat,the purer the metal
The purer the metal,the rarer the metal
The rarer the metal the greater the value
The purer the metal the greater the heat
Hell is a refinery
Its destiny's greatest arsenal against life
Life opened hell,and I found destiny
But first I must be refined
After being melted
After being broken
But I won't remain broken
I won't remain melted
Like a Phoenix will I rise
Leave behind the ashes
And soar to destiny
For on the other side of hell lays destiny
In a beautiful land named destination
On the wild journey called life,
Beyond the training zone called HELL.
Life opened the gates of hell,and I found solace in the heat,away from the cold that is called the world
