The Social Media Doctors say boredom is a
garden of unholy ghosts & the path to journey
Into the Suicide Island. Yet, one extrovert soaks
boredom with a gourd of snipers.
Nurses say depression does not have a home
in Lagos – the nucleus of struggles –
But some bullets pass through the head, the say way
firework flies to the sky. Everybody
Is a judge – pastor, imam, sane and mad –
trading between life and death
& countless causalities. Like gushing water sourcing for
its root, Today
searches for name until she finds one written on the forehead
of Akeem’s graveyard – Depression Day
Akeem once told me: life is made up of two-side of a coin:
good and bad, happy and sad, life and death.
I know we lay our bed to filter memories. With itching memories,
here I am, a baptist – seeking a new sea of divine.
