Gone pear-shaped

My project has gone pear-shaped,
Leaving me in total confusion;
What am I going to do now?
On this project I staked my all;
Everything has fallen overboard;
My foot moves on black soil;
Can anybody advise me on this?
I need your help, please;
Do not leave me in the cold;
After everything,
Doesn’t man live by man?

I wish to express gratitude to Indishe and topomzblog for the idioms they sent to SIWO and which inspired me to write this poem.

Great is you

Great is you.

Great is you
As I see it
With my own eyes.

Great is you.

Great is you
From the way
You think.

Great is you.

Great is you
Whose springboard
Is the sky.

Great is you.

Great is you
Whose limit
Is the universe.

Great is you.

Great is you
Who are wise enough
To know what is important
And what is not;
That not earthly life
But eternal life
Is what matters.

Great is you.
Great is you
Who know God,
Maker of everything
Great and small;
In heaven and on earth.

Great is you.

Great is you;
Great, great is you.
Great is the wise one
That you are.
We say, “Thank you, Lord”.

This poem was inspired by a conversation I had with Horatianessentials to whom I express my gratitude.

The young and the old

While the young need the old,
The old need the young;
The one cannot go leaving the Other behind;
The equation has to balance
As that is how equations work;
The young complement the old;
And the old complement the
Young;
without the old,
There would be no young;
None can stand alone,
Else into a heap they go;
While the old are there
For the young;
Let the young be there for
The old,
So complementary their roles
Are meant to be.

Do you know when I knew you were mine?

I know you are mine my love;
I want you so very much;
I want you more than honey so sweet;
And do you know when I knew you were mine? And that I wanted you?
The day I knew I had found my heart;
When I knew you were the love of my life;
The day I imagined you standing
Right in front of me!
You looked so real standing there;
Your eyes pierced my eyes;
And mine pierced yours;
The four eyes got hooked together;
And for some seconds, inseparable!
The unmistakable words swept
Through me from top to bottom
Like sea waves;
I knew I was in love with you;
I knew I had found the love of my life;
I started to want you more than Anything else in this whole wide world.
Right now, I am mad about you.
You are the love of all my life.

What I like to be called

Do you know what I like to be called?
I will tell you;
But you first tell me what you like to be called;
I like to be called dear
Or dearie;
I like to be called honey;
I like to be called sweetheart;
So the next time
You call me dear,
You are on the right path
To my heart;
If you look at me then,
You will find me laughing
From jaw to jaw;
I like to be called love names;
Names that make me feel loved
And wanted. Ha ha ha ha! The simple truth;
Maybe that’s why I say
Same words easily to others.

Today is a day

Today is a day that’s special;
Today is a day of blessings;
Today is a day of joy;
Today is a day for celebration;
Today is a day of hope;
Today is a day for Thanksgiving;
Today is a day for smiles;
Today is a day for laughter;
Today is a day to relax;
Today is a day to sing for joy;
Today is a day to decide;
Today is a day to be humble;
Today is a day to dress well;
Today is a day to be confident;
Today is a day to be courageous;
Today is a day to be positive.
Today is a day to pray and pray.
