I thought it was a dream
But nay it wasn’t
I thought I couldn’t see him
But yeah I did
I saw him riding like a horse
The crowd therein was like the sand of the sea shore
Behold our hope is coming
I didn’t mind the eyes gazing
I swam across
I didn’t mind if be shot down
Alas, i fixed my gaze on him
He looked down on me with a smile
I felt the sensation
He didn’t speak to me
But his smile spoke to me in a thousand way
His smile was painting the picture
‘Be ready to take back your future’
You are our hope papa!
I wish he could hear me say that
I opened my mouth wide as I spread my hands in awe
I can perceive the aroma of hope
Raising like thick flames above the sky
Our hope is coming
The night is about to roll before us
A new dawn is about to awake
I can feel my tomorrow from today
Our hope is coming!
Our hope is here!
My name is Nonyelu Uchenna Linda popularly know by the stage name ‘Lindalines.' I'm an award winning poet, creative writer and a spoken word artist with the brand name 'Lindalines poetry.’ I write captivating and heart melting poems; my poem is one of those poems that communicates to your soul and takes you out of this world. Poetry is life; to me, poetry is more than writing in lines and stanzas, it is a contribution of the reality. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him. Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. A poem is a little myth of man’s capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see, it is rather, a light by which we may see and what we see is life. Being a lover of poetry, I authored an anthology "Voice from Home" a collection of heart melting poems. You would not like to miss reading these poems, they are available on Amazon both, the kindle and paper back.
