Ramadan Poem | Day 14: Tell me how to live by Onafowokan Taofeek Busayo

Tell me how to live

Tell me what it is like to live
Without
Words that make up the earth
Without
Awe or astonishment
That let you know your colour
Under the grave of thoughts

Tell me what is like to sail
On a ship
Without
A running sea
Of drops, clauses of waves
Or liquids of melted years
Swimming beside your roads

Tell me how it feels to live
On a map
Without
A guide
That weep you, sweep you,
And yawn you down.
That draws borders of fear
In your heart.

Tell me how it is like
To purify your soul
With
Odour of the earth
That smells dirts and sins.

Tell me how to live
Without
The words in the Holy Qur’an & traditions
Of the prophet.
Tell me.
