"Existence Beneath Heaven" A Poem By Odebayo Tayo — Pawners Paper

An existence of bones Locked inside fleshes of soil Has her eyes opened to Ranges beyond her means.

In "Existence Beneath Heaven", the poem travel on the edges of "unsolved" questions centred on the existence of men. The poem likens the travails of men to "The battle of life-and-death, Lives pit against strengths" with "Races of covetous urges" in his quest for wealth and power . He concludes, questioning the mystery behind man's mortaliy—"Is it because we can't think like heaven, Or we're suppressed in cloth of flesh?" leaving every reader to ponder on and resolve like a god.

The poet, Odebayo, gives a piece with enthralling words that capture the mind, feeds it a crumb and enslave it to crave more.

"Existence Beneath Heaven" A Poem By Odebayo Tayo — Pawners Paper






EXISTENCE BENEATH HEAVEN

An existence  of  bones
Locked inside fleshes of soil
Has her eyes opened to
Ranges beyond her means.

Each and each time sans break
The battle of life-and-death
Lives pit against strengths
To have power reigned supreme.

A dominating entity
Races of covetous urges
Money the aim of daily enmities
Blood dyed her hands in clot of sin.

Against odds and evens
Unconscious heart in cage of heart
Death to vision of righteousness
Bullying 'n oppressing the weak.

Mortality trails along immorality
Dust the lips shall in the end kiss
Body the recipes of foods to termites
Carcasses "piles of meat"  for the soil. 

Blinded not against sordid deeds
Why are we called mortals- is it
because we can't think like heaven
Or we're suppressed in cloth of flesh?
