Most People

Most people don't care enough to make a difference.
Most people aren't going to buy that new thing you're selling.
Most people are afraid to take action.
Most people are too self-involved to do the generous work you're hoping for.
Most people think they can't afford it.
Most people won't talk about it.
Most people aren't going to read what you wrote.
Fortunately, you're not most people. Neither are your best customers.

The bell …

The sound of the bell
That sound of awkwardness
 The fright it sends down my veins
Of joy, fear, presumptions and guilt
Joy of good tidings set for reap
Fear of evil burgeoning
Presumption of superstitions foretold.

Guilt of sins past.
The bell cries out loud
Roars even into the darkest parts;
Into the wood and beneath the deep pool
 There’s only few and one thing
 That separates the bell from me
The Walls;
 The walls high and mighty
The walls so strong yet fragile
 The walls built to keep me safe
But no, here they come falling flat.

Forget about good

Forget about good Good is a known quantity Good is what we all agree on As long as you stick to good, You’ll never have real growth Bruce Mau, Designer

These Women ...

These women Their shoes are maxi-high Their lips are full-on red Their bags and dresses fit And match like the perfect sky But their attitudes, oh their attitudes Their attitude roar like a roll of thunder. These women They laugh, smile and gaze Like it's all little, casual yet So small; they call shots and spots As if they mean harm and no more, nothing extra These women They desire neither acquire No remorse because after all They are women.

Am I?

Am I? Am I reading this? Am I digesting every bit Of these words Or just looking through and counting letters? Am I? Am I giving proper attention to these sayings Or just hearing sounds of it? Am I finding reason and understanding To these sentences or am just walking that Part of acceptance - that part that believes words Are sinking in with meaning but rather the lack of it Am I? Am I going to stop These other side-thoughts So I can concentrate on the Rewards this readings will yield? Am I? Am I seeking solution and comfort Or attracting More harm with my worries And believes - Am I? (C) Adeola Ojedokun
