Stephen Okereke Micheal writes

One day
I shall feed
The vain earth
With the last breath in my lung.
I shall pay my debt
To the dust of the earth
And to the sky far above.
I shall return mortal to mortality
And submit immortal before immortality.
My soul shall dine
With the owner of souls
And my flesh shall lay not waste
But feed the soil with humus
And bless the earth with fossil fuel.
The hearts of loved ones
Shall be clothed in black robes
Tears cascading uncontrollably.
So, shall my soul journey to eternity
Before this time
I shall live my life to fullest
Planting my foot print
On every land I shall trend.
