DO IT!

have you read about wedding in Cana?
did you remember Rabbi’s mother
“whatever He asks you, do it..”

the washing basin,
the vessel for new wine

Miracle,
is the result of illogical obedience

hear and DO!..

– Oluwafemi

Questions Crossed Out

My wailing,
What does it weigh,
Against the sighs of seven billion souls, each,
Digging wounds into my already shattered depths,

My breathing,
What does it matter,
When it’s lost in waves of first winds drawn and last gasps sown,
Lashing earth for eons,

My living,
Is it a rare gem or a speck of dust,
Amongst countless weddings, empires collapsing,
And the universe’s billionth galaxy collision,

The answer,
Is a death to cross these questions out,
The meaning of existence, hanging on a stake,
For my sake.
