Letter from the ground.

I have never complained
You stand on me to lie to your friends
You spit on me and swear to your parents
You stand on me with hatred in your hearts
Remember, I’m still the ground….

You’ve defiled me with your corruption
You’ve broken bonds in my presence
I look at you without fighting back
Every human being, no matter how old he gets will die someday

I’m tired of the lies
The ground is a place for you all
But how you live your life determines how soon you come to join me
You’ve lost yourself and”I’m not dying” you always say
It makes me laugh whenever I hear it

Humus means soil which is the same word as humility
I have sent humility to the world for free that we may all get it
Same way I sent pride out of my home because we aren’t families…..

You sent humility out of your home
You welcomed pride and made it your own
You nourished it that it may not die in your house
Well, you’ll be humble soon enough…

I am the ground
And I’m sending you to spread my letter
Spread it to the foolish so they will be wise
I am the ground and this is my letter.

    Hi Oladewa

    Hope you’re keeping well. I’m not sure whether you remember me, I used to blog at WaywardScribbles. But recently I’ve launched my new website. I’ll mean a lot to me if you could pay a visit and share your thoughts on it.


    Hoping to see you around.
    Take Care!
