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.
Can you just let me love you without restrain
I want to love you without holding my feelings
I want to treat you right with my whole heart
You deserve better and I am here with the best for you.

Can you let me love you without questions.
See I have been hurt too, I never had it all sweet
I was broken,i still have scars from my past, I was left too,  but i am never a coward of love
That's why I am here wanting to love ones again
And like every other time, I want to give it my all, my best and of course my strength.
If only you can make us work, I will make you the envy of all.

S. O Sther
Let me make you the envy of all

Omo baba é,
Born with a silver 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.

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.

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
I have lost faith in people,
Forever is not for me I guess
Cause to me, love has been brutal
I only have a simple wish, that I will be loved same way I do.
Maybe I was asking for too much,
Maybe I haven't met the right person
Maybe I don't even deserve any person
Maybe I was made for loneliness
Maybe only in myself can I find happiness
I was made for me, I am my own bride.

S. O sther.
Love can be brutal sometimes, especially when you haven't met the right person

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.
I love you, for real I do,
I don't know when I started, I have no idea I have fallen this deep either
You complete my day with your smile
You are everything I was praying for
But you hurt me, I was broken by your words you know.
I have my fears too, I am not that brave either
You gave up before it even began
What if you hurt me, you think I am not worried about that too, of course I am but each time I think about you I know I can get through those fears, I love you that much
But I cant force it so I am going to let go.
Yeah it hurting me big time but I will heal again
I am not going to forget you but I am going to live like I do before I met you. I hope you find love when you heal.

S. O Sther
Are you strong to let go?
Samuel Esther Apr 2020
I was told love is blind,
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

S. O Sther.
To my love.

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.

S. O sther
Valued soul
Hey perfect,
Can I walk you down the aisle
It been six mouth after we said hi.
You were grumpy you know, but the kind of lady I want
so I still shoot my shot,
And after few days I got a reply.
I have loved you from the start,
You are the brightest among all stars.
And when I said I love you, I meant forever with you, when I told you I need you, it wasn't for a moment you know, it an eternity with you by my side.
A mini you to make trouble too.
So will you say yes to a future with me
Will you say yes when the priest ask
Will you say yes and make me yours truly
Will you say yes and be mine for every lifetime.
It's a proposal so will you say yes?

— The End —
