Faces that smile

I build castles, with lime stones..
And coliseum before one is known..
Clock ticking, my brain moves, as worker ants do..
Generating ideas feeling it with ambition..

Eyes see what I aspire..
Legs walk the distance, crossing the red sea..
Destiny does not give me affirmation..
Of the promise land..

A parallel world of choices..
Like the chess game I play..
Burnt marks and wrong moves..
The shepherd’s dog to guide me..

Truth be told, on virtuous lands..
 To not have set motions on pretence..
And in resolve, seen in clear day light..
What mountains needs climbing ..

With chest out, on brave stands..
 I summon phoenix..
Sweats, fuel my adrenaline rush..
To have my castle seating in my arm..
That’s with the smile on me face..


  1. I love your opening line how you build castles with lime stones.that is such a wonderful way to start off this amazing poem happy picnic

  2. Love this...the poetic image well penned down

  3. Lookout for the Poem of the week this saturday in the gooseberry garden

  4. A parallel world of choices..
    Like the chess game I play..
    Burnt marks and wrong moves..
    The shepherd’s dog to guide me..

    really tight stanza man....very nice verse...what mountains need climbing is a great thing to ponder as well...

  5. I like the play of castle sitting in your arms!

  6. parallel world of choices -> that chess game. i like that. chess is so full of choices, each one so crucial

    neither good nor bad

  7. I love the confidence and the forward thinking of your poem, Kodjo. Beyond that, the illusions you've created are so full of promise. This is an inspiring piece and I thank you for sharing. =D

  8. eyes see what I aspire, love this line, terrific write

  9. Nice write...I really like the chess reference to the parallel worlds...

  10. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to
    grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook
    in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with a few percent to pressure the
    message house a little bit, but other than that, that is excellent blog.
    A great read. I'll definitely be back.

    Here is my blog post; diets, ,
