Adorably Horror Series – Tope Ashaolu
Mother Earth on a wheelchair’
When mother is rewritten into another blank stories
And into another dark sheet
Little light in her should able to call to mind
Of when and how was their abode thrust with lost footprint
But how do we say it
That mother’s light has been buried even though still craving
Or how do pronounce this-
That moon birthed by Earth has been strike by the colours of pain
There are places in heaven where Earth can be heal
But her other children won’t let the path to heaven live
And not even any scent track will be spare
Cause they are fire that burn their abode slowly
Maybe her sheet will be flooded with beautiful tales again
But scars in her is like flies after rain
And the wheelchair, just a cover page of different strayed bullet inher
Hope a moment will live when her foot will saunter again
But hitherto, Mother Earth is another soul with lost strength.
