My Crib Poetry

IF STONES WERE GOLD AND EVERYWHERE-RIDWAN ADELAJA

Written by Eridwana

If stones were gold and everywhere

And every man has his fair share

How rich our men would be?

 

If smiles on face are nothing rare

And every man for a must must cheer

How happy the heart would be?

 

If righteousness is the ship we fare

And truth is that with which we steer

How fulfilled our lives would be?

 

If honesty and truth be air

And every nose will breathe and snare

How healed our world would be?

 

If wisdom is all human’s care

And for its search, we all would dare

How wise everyone would be?

 

If love is placed so high and dear

And man to man becomes a pair

How peaceful our land would be?
