Life Is Beautiful! (Family & Childhood)

Family favor finds , Family forgiving
Ground rules, growing, grandpa guiding
Rods reaching,  rounds receiving, results revealing.
Church calling, choir calming, childhood Christmas
Books, bags, breaks, besides Bodmas
Wrinkling weakness with wit wishful
Pots, plates, pleasure places, parents peaceful
Easily evoking emotions ever exact
Inspiring inkling in-line, ideas intact.
Life is beautiful! – Leon
………………………..
Steady offending
Jumping round sofas, whip eluding
Only a snippet to a rare kind of loving
Smart mouth, skinny limbs, boy and girl
Almost never found in clothing that twirl
Loved by many, repulsive to the moody
The light in mom’s smile, never broody
Playful, carefree, thoughtful, soul
My food always had to be served in a bowl
Life is beautiful.– Hybrid
………………………….
Ma and Pa married on a sunny April day
They said their love will slay
When baby cries were their only airplay
Dull days and toys,weary hearts,yet happy home
Grandma visited home!
Bringing kuli kuli
She prepared everything with chilli
Causing runny nose and running feet…
Hazy memories, yet treasured on heart street !
Life is beautiful.- Omolola
……………………………
The logs of bamboo overlain with raffia
Had always been my transport to lafiya
It had always been their backs that secured the familiar
I can’t recall it being uneventful
Not the lies or half-truths to escape wrath – full
Such where the days of loin cloths,
Smeared faces, warm hugs and the delight from fresh broths
You call them family I stamp them blood
Growth is a mixture of love and mud
Life is beautiful – Jennifer Dafwat
………………………………
Seemingly bound with a ring of diamonds and gold
Just love and warmth, no second was cold
Childhood, that fairytale scarcely told
The late night meals we shared
Laughters and frowns from hearts that cared
This family that was as big as it is small
Mischievous friends, we were called at the hood’s mall.
The beautiful games we invented
Those beautiful plays that were never scripted.
Life is beautiful. Tee2emm
………………………………….
For a cause, hearts get slashed when married.
Mother for Dad to be carried.
A night without moms kiss, the world should be worried..
An undiluted laughter begins at dawn.
Safe for keep, a reason to be sad we had none.
Favours are returned for free.
Awakened by an uprising glee.
We are to be reborn for a reason.
Just so we spark up in same season.
Life is beautiful. Hypermind
……………………………………..
Tales by moonlight, stories told by father
those days we acted, cooked sand in a drama.
Stubborn me would not listen to our mother.
as I grew older, we were under iron hands,
disciplined like night, secretly played rubber bands.
Ate 3 times a day anymore, one would report.
Backbiting and telling on each other in our court.
To days when we didn’t eat outside.
Till date if I do, I always lied
Life is beautiful- Rudolph
…………………………………..
Mercury of youth fueled by innocence
Bedtime stories were told with sense
Eyes like stars at night peering over the fence
Most days were spent wandering
Through dingy streets and littering
With wraps of candy and anything sweet
Till mama calls or her gentle whip meet
No stuffed bear, no toys
Just climbing trees with boys
Life is beautiful- Vera
