And the silence is deafening


When my father Mr. JosephOkechukwuAgbai died on the 4th of February 2014,Iwasheart broken(

Still I’m actually).

I received an sms from a childhood buddy on Saturday that her mum had passed(Rest in peace Mama) and with the recent deaths of Akunyunli Dora, Kefee and others……I write this short poem.

May their souls rest in peace.

And the silence is deafening..

The journey has begun

The one you travel alone

The one that signals the end

The one that is not pretend

And the silence is deafening…

Hope ceases to exist

Faith is needless in its wits

Love unable to compete

Joy struggles to exist.

And the silence is….

Suddenly you are all alone

Surrounded by chaos and ignored

Searching times spent and unspent

Staring at an endless end

  1. One thing that remains elusive is that nobody knows when the endless journey of eternity will begin. The only thing to be absolutely sure of is your Salvation (your stand with God) which guarantees internal life. The young and old departs everyday to eternity but more worrisome is that the larger percentage go into everlasting damnation ( wide is the gate that leads to destruction and many there be that go in). Let us all endeavor to hear His voice in our hearts before we go completely silent in this world.
