CRAVING(Poem by Philomena N. Okeke)

Feeling the need to drink.

Longing,willing,desire, and yearning.

Not as dry as a bone.
I am not dehydrated.

Craving for  something.

I wanna  get your attention.

I want more of you.

Tried to get your attention.

Am I alone in this ?

Why am I so thirsty?

Your love can quench my thirst?

Which is like a raging river.
With unobtainable force.

Hoping to be fulfilled someday.

REFUSED TO LISTEN.(POEM by Philomena N Okeke)

  1. I had a crush on him.
He crushed my soul. And I crushed his soul. Parents advice no longer mattered. I kissed School goodbye. He kissed School goodbye. Call it disappearance or elopement. It lead to Sin City. Marriage or Wedding not necessary. At least not for us. My tummy started to grow. I do not want my tummy to grow. He said that I am healthy. I say no it’s baby. He denied my big tummy. He started to hit. I don’t understand the hate. I thought we are in love. Are you my crush? My love is gone. Prayed and cried. It is finished,gone. Come back my love. Come back to to me. I am still in love. While I sat in the dust. I miss your kisses. I accept your imperfection. I accept your failures. Accepted our stupidity. Please come back. I need you. But cannot find you. Mom please forgive me. To err is human and to forgive is divine. THE END. NB : She returned back to her parents gave birth to a baby boy. Two years later,she got married to a PhD holder(College Professor) ,had a good wedding. And she became a Registered Nurse.


Where are you my love? You stood like you evolved. You are my sweet dove. If you are sweet candy.
Then I love  sweet candy.
I am ready to eat you up.
Let me worry about tooth
decay down the road.
We giggle with each other. Holding hands on the street. You rebuilt and organized me. We jump up together. Happy and sad together. You lifted me up. And now I can fly. We play with each other. Dive into the Ocean with each other. Peaceful and divine. Our eyes spark at each other. “The world can stop turning, the Sun can stop burning, Who can tell me that love is not worth going through?. If it falls apart,I will understand deep down in my heart ,the only dream that meant a lot to me, has come true. In this life,I was loved by you”Bette Midler. You held my hands. And I held your hands. When I see you I behave. I have lots of curves. I feel like a new me. “What the heart gives cannot go away,it is kept in the hearts of others”Robin St. John. Now I am alive . I am your beloved. And you are my beloved. “I have learned not to worry about love,but to honor , its coming with all my heart”. -Alice Walker. Love me in the light and in darkness. I promise to do the same.

A MESSAGE TO MY SON.(POEM by Philomena N Okeke )

Son know yourself.
Be friendly to everyone.

But trust few.
Stick to your driving lane.

Stick to what is right.

Forget what what is not right.
Love yourself to love others.

Because love is infectious,
and will infect  others .

No limitations in life.

Trust and love yourself.

Demand great things for.

A great man learns from culture.

And his personal power.

Here comes the doctor of love.

Willing to move you forward.

There should  be no excuses.

If you are willing to do something.

You will find a way to do it.

Picture your life surrounded with  success.

You are holding a miracle.

See yourself in money .

Be prepared for the pitfalls.

Scattered on the paths of life.

First thing in your heart is success.

Break your goals in stages.

Take short steps to get there.

Keep it private to avoid obstacles.

Map out your plans to success.

You are the Carver.

The maker of your destiny.

Nobody can shut the door of,

honest and great ambition.

Reject those obstacles

Door of success is wide open.

Tell me that it is not  wide open.

You do not shove.

You blush.

PSALM 23:1-6.(In my Perspective )

“The Lord is my Shepherd.

I shall not want”.

That is the Lord is my guide,my conductor,

he accompany me in all that I do.

“I will not lack anything”.

Meaning I will be self sufficient.

  • “He makes me lie down in green pastures”.
  • That is He provides great opportunities for
  • those who believe.
  • And He will provide  great opportunities for me.

“He leads me beside the still water”.

He removes all impurities from me.

And make me clean from impurities.


“He refreshes my soul”.

Meaning He elevates my soul,

rekindle my strength.

He guides me in the paths of

righteousness for His Name Sake.

That is He guides me in His direction,

the right directionfor His Name.In honor of his name.

“Even though I walk through the valley of darkness,

I will fear no evil for you are with me”.

I believe in God,I have confident in God,I trust God.

Even though I am in the mist of non believers,

(the valley of death)those that don’t have the same Christian

faith as me preaching the word of God.I must be compassionate

and not hold grudges. I will not be afraid because

God is with me.And He is giving me direction.

Rather than get upset,pray for their understanding 

and acceptance with time.

“Yes your rod and staff they comfort me”.

That is your Grace is

sufficient for me to live in.

“You prepared a table before me in front of my enemies”.

You provided me with strength and courage to

deal and tackle difficult problems.

“You anoint my head with oil,my cup overflow”.

This means that the Lord has provided for me in

abundance ,surplus.“Surely goodness and love will follow me .

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever”.

That is I will continue to believe in God.And follow

the teachings of our Lord all my life.

That means that,I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I will live in the house of God forever, Amen.Dwell in the House of God is to live in God’s site for ever.
