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.

THE BOY AND HIS DOG.(Bedtime Story)

The good singing bird.
The annoying destructive bird.

Nick was sent on an errand to his grandmother’s house.

He decided to go with his dog to grandma’s  house.

On their way ,there were two birds.

The singing bird and the bad bird.

The bad bird was making loud noise.

And Nick dog began to bark at the bad bird.

Nick said bad bird stop your noise .

Me and my dog do not want your noise.

Allow Robin,or Nightingale to sing a melody song.

Yes allow us to listen to good song.

The bad bird continued the destructive behavior

Nobody not even the dog want destructive behavior.

The dog barked more, so that the bad bird will stop.

While the dog was still barking the bad bird flew away.

The little bird continue to sing beautiful melody.

Nick and his dog arrived safely at grandmother’s house.



I Respect you,show me some. Respect should be Reciprocated. Respect is virtue. Respect is to acknowledge. We all love to be respected. But liars are hard to detect. I promise to respect you,not to inspect. Respect me without symbol or status. If you respect me,I will respect you. In every situation,we should discuss with respect. No shaming but respect. No third party but respect. Third party comes in,if we cannot solve the problem. And should not lead to disrespect. Our mistakes should be opportunity for growth. Not to dwarf growth. Respect is understanding of boundaries. Wear my underwear is disrespect. Occupy my space is disrespect. Go into my wallet that is not respect. Open my mails is disrespect. Respect is not disrespect. It allows me to control what is mine.
