Poetry from Chimezie Ihekuna

  1. i) Out of the Box


Out of the Box I was lost in the box called life…In it,

(I) I wanted learning but my education was deafening

I wanted truth but my reality faked its root

I wanted to buy the right counsel but my mind controller got me its left sell

I wanted to be free but my pursuit turned a tree

I wanted information but my vision brought me deformation

I wanted wellness but my state showed illness

I wanted food but my money was rude

I wanted a wife but my life mirrored a knife!

I wanted the clarity of pleasure but my naked eyes saw the dullness of pressure

I wanted to live forever but my death was to question

For Ever I wanted peace but my perception reflected unease


(II) I wanted to know about people but my understanding was a fumble

I wanted to be everyone’s friend but my experience was the pal’s end

I wanted to be rich but my efforts didn’t catch a fish!

I wanted direction but my limitation was the obstruction

I wanted to know the ‘why’ to everything happening but my answer had to cry to all prevailing

I wanted to invest in good but my previous return showed “fooled”

I wanted to scream because of pains but my calmness showed up because of gains


(III) I wanted people to hear my voice but my quest was a noise

I wanted money but my struggle was funny!

I wanted to know why the world was divided but the response was: “Its control is what’s favorited”

I wanted to know what happens after death but my physical life told me I was on earth

I wanted to tell people my experience but my words failed me in their presence

I wanted to know if I knew what I know but my existence replied with a “NO!” I wanted to find myself through my works but my inner-self whispered:

“If you want to find yourself, then think Out Of the Box!”

  1. ii) The Worthiness of Truth

The Worthiness of Truth


Its appearance beats the imagination of the naive.

Its weight of its significance can only be carried by the “ready” sub-conscious mind.

It is not easy to accommodate because of its consequences.

It distances itself from the one who is not willing to embrace its essence.

But stamps its nearness to one willing to embrace it.

It has a slow movement of speed

But has a way of penetrating the mind of the parochial person.


Truth dwells with and in humanity

But its presence is endless

Truth is actually not sold

But has an influence over the feeble

Truth lived by involves a conscious effort

But it forms the awakening to greater consciousness.

‘’Truth is bitter’’, the saying goes

But it fights against humanity’s dis-eases

To prevent it from physical diseases



Humanity thinks of truth as being materialistic

But soon discovers the falsehood

It realizes truth cannot be measured by gold and silver

Its Worth: Simply Priceless!
