Sanmi Abiodun: This month is a seed, invest it (Poetry)

by Sanmi Abiodun

This month is a seed, invest it
A peephole to your future, respect it
We know the status quo is tiring, detest it
You feel pain, you want gain, suppress it
They may offer cash for your soul, reject it
Throw shades to diss or piss you, deflect it
‘Cause value comes with dignity, expect it

Friendship is a seed, invest it
You know what will help a man, suggest it
He deserted you on the wrong day, forget it
They brought his gist to your table, dissect it
Like before you pay for an item, you inspect it
Rumors are stale or gale, pale or hale, suspect it
‘Cause trust is the new cool, accept it

A good deed is a seed, invest it
Family, they say comes first, protect it
But when strangers need a hug, extend it
Or a beggar needs a coin, expend it
When neighbors crave your faith, project it
Or a shoulder for the faint, present it
‘Cause seeds will always germinate, bet it.
