Tuesday Pin- Poetry | Miss Purple | This Is War

It's not a duel

It's war

Our words

Expose us

As we feel it

Hard and soft

Inside and around

Touching it

Here and there

Deep, deep thrust

Do these words sound familiar?

They are yours

This is not a duel

This is  war

Of poetry

Of music

Of love

Of a little romance

Here, there

There will be no winners

We are slaves

To the power of lyrics

In chains, we write

Of skies, rivers, mountains

And all that binds us

So Mr Ishaya Osu,

This is not a duel

This is war.
