Samuel Esther Apr 21
Dear Save,
Are you going to break my head
if I come back to you crying,
Or would you nest me in your arms
To comfort my grieved soul ?
I have been broken again.
Yes I remembered you singing it
over and over again,
'Do not come back broken'
But here I am, scattered.

Scold me I deserve it,
You can hit me
for I know my wrong now.
Starve me I won't complain
But don't leave
I would never be able to deal with it.
Don't turn your back on me, it hurts.
I have learnt my lessons after this
So take me back for another repair
Or maybe I need a real pair.

Life out there has never been fair
Sending me back to the square of one.
Where do I start from ?
I don't know.
Give me another tee from fare
Maybe this time I might get home.

Another heartbreak.

Omo baba é,
Born with a sliver spoon
Your fun will end soon.

Oko Maama é,
All rods were spared
But she was ruined by her peer

Omo Oba,
The beauty of our land
Now cursed by the gods.

The most beloved
Clothed with pride
From your fall you can never hide.

Please make us proud.
That was her mama's cry
Yet she would not even try.

Ranti omo eni ti iwo nse
Her father warned
But she refuses  to fàdé shéwà.  

The only child of her parent, a royal blood but her pride led to her fall.

Fully paid
Samuel Esther Apr 12
It all started with my sins
Including that of my kin's
Living life of corruption kings
But he paid the price

He live with no fault
But my lies left him with deep cuts
He prayed nonstop
But for my shame,
He came down from the top
Just to pay the price.

Knowing I am a sinner
He still chose to make me a winner
We wine and dine
But it was him who came to die
Because that was the price

For my lies
For my shame
For my idolatry
For my ill thoughts
His death was the price

I have lost a friend
But he said to me
"It is not my end
I have paid the price".

"For your redemption
For your salvation
For your eternity if you chose me
I have paid it all".

So I was given a new name
And now I live in his fame
Enjoying all of his gain
Because he has paid the price
For all of my sins.
He paid it all
And I am free.

S. O sther.

To my love.

But our souls have been bind.  
Heaven bless the day I met you
For your love has melt me.
Without saying a word
You light up my world
Giving me joy with no bound.
I love you babe

To my love.

Valued soul
You will never know the value of something until you loss it they say, but that is if you're still alive. Because the very moment you lose your soul is the end of all value.I guess You will never know that,  for your soul holds all value and that you have lost it.

A cry from my soul
I have always expected more from life
Yet the dude never fails to fail.
Getting carried away by all the hails
I left my dreams in jail
Sail back to your shore!
That was a cry from my soul
She has gone too deep to turn
But that which she runs from
Await her at her peck.

S. O sther.
A cry from my soul.

My strength when I am weak,
The hero of the less.
Even the rich carve for a taste
We savor you with great haste.

The pride of our hood
In company of the ice
You need no sweetener
Your sourness gives joy.

My true love
Well fried and dried,
Then complimented with any nuts,
I come to you with my bowl!

My best friend
With tens of naira
You'd love  a poor man with dignity
Living with him with no shame.

I have come to bow with my bowl
Bless my cup till it overflow
So that even when I blow,
You and I can still roll.

S. O sther
