Poetry: Reincarnation; Poem by Olovo Chidubem Emmanuel | ACEworld

Reincarnation

If I’m to come here a second time
I shall stay off the blacks boundary
Where truth in glare in a twist turns lime
And the judge skilled and legendary
Spew the bitter herbs of truth
And for sweetness fed on falsehood

If I should come here again
I shall set my face like a flint
And shall tread life with bargain
Where conscience and instinct
Shall guide the tour of a sojourner

If I shall come here again
From cradle shall set i my goal
Not wanting to lose time again
Or expose again to hurt my soul
But fierce and fury like lion
