BESSIE GOLD’s VERSEπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

The rain drops rolling off my Eyes. My tears falling off the sky… My skin hooting for help… My voice dropping the sweats ….. My nose sees not d possible temptations…

My eyes smell not thethe burn commotion … You hit me and i laughed back at you and u pampered me yet i fell at ya feet and cried to u …. ( Everything said from the beginning is in reverse.. Read again)

Have eaten enough bones of Contention … Seeking above for my Redemption… Even the rich still works with Tension.. Not a conclusion tho, it’s just a Notion..

The poor gat almost nothin to Feed on… Yet the hustlers has no one to Lean on.. Life is short, live it with no regrets .. Gonna turn the deaf ear to the fuckin’ Hearsays..

I’m backing my pains as if we have never Met .. Coz brooding and weeping never Pays .. Though, I wasn’t born with a silver SpoonπŸ₯„.. But I witnezed stories told at night under d MoonπŸŒ’ .. So even dho I wasn’t born Rich …

Certainly, I believe dat all my goals i’m gonna Reach.. My life experiences is enough course for me to Teach .. My present is givin’ me hope that my future would be at its Peak …
KEEP THE SPIRIT ON.. DNT GIVE UP ON LIFE.

Life is full of parables… The rich also cry.. D strong also bleeds… We are all humans after all…. All d blessings in disguise.. Come forth.. Tz time to surface…

PECULIAR’s VERSEπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Peculiar!

As I walk through Life path
Life for me is pain
Some say Life is sweet
But I say Life is bitter.

As I walk through Life path, for 20 years now i’ve been sitting on thorns beneath beautiful Roses.
I don’t know how I fell in this pit of Depression but am still sitting waiting patiently for a saviour,
Peculiar Yeah I am in need of a Moses.

As I walk through Life Path,
I watch a lot of movies, read Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet
Hoping to find myself a Juliet.

As I walk through Life path way,
Yes the lonely me is still waiting to see a pave way.

As I walk through Life path I get thirsty,
And when i get hungry I eat from the plate from the plate of Depression cooked by evil misery.
Most times I loose Hope and desperation in my very own Victory.

My Heart πŸ’“ is an iced Room
Carved out by untold tears.
Emptiness of my heart
Left me like a lost soul standing on a Heaven’s Open Door
Filled with doubt and weariness.

You wonder why I walk alone A crown of thorns Is what I get for my sacrifice.
Solitude became the cold food I gave in to feed my very own appetite.

Life offers no smelling Roses🌹
And the devil gives no free Love not even on Valentine.

Life has not been Fair with me,
But I still wish Lotions like Caro White would bleach her For me.

  1. I don’t Wanna sentimental, having read the two poems and likewise digested them, I think I would go with peculiar, his poem was well articulated and well punctuated, he followed the rules of poetry, he wasn’t just concerned about the rhymes alone but wrote his pieces following literature. Rules, Bessie gold on the other hand had enchanted words and sweet poem but lack poetic engagement and rulings. But her piece was awesome no doubt, so work on your articulation and arrangements or verses. I rest my case

  2. Awww… This is a beautiful one coming from you guys @ 9jaflavourmedia.

    Both presentation carry some weight and I give it to them for their creative way of interpretation of LIFE!

    However, Bessiegold’s work did more justice to it by giving hers a touch of motivation and encouragement. My vote goes to Bessiegold! Thumbs up Queen πŸ‘

  3. Dunno d rules of poem coz am not a poetπŸ€·β€β™€οΈbut u both killed it wit those amazing words and rythem…kudos

    However, u always gat my vote @ Bessie-Gold, each word from u is motivational,Keep d fire burning sugar mi, I love u now and always BESTIE😍😘

  4. I vote Bessie, coz it’s emotional and draws a picture of what life is all about. It’s a poem you would love to read over and over again.

  5. I’m not a poet but honestly I’ll give it up for the two poets. I think Bessie did a good job with the “reverse” thing. It was awesome.

  6. Bessie-Gold deserves the verse accolade because she is blessed with the potential to touch other people’s lives. The rhyme is dope and the flow is superb, lovely interpretation. Wuraola is such an inspiration.
    …I VOTE BESSIE-GOLD!!!
