Colours of Giving by Segun Israel

Seasons, my best company
once told me ” you also got the power to give, the very first time you took.”
when i first set my eyes
on the greens,
when green was still green,
I concluded i knew what love is.
with opened and lavish hands
do the greens give
and till this day i have not got the power to know the difference between loving and giving.
On the streets of home
i have stumbled on these colours
where hearts that bled were stanched with balm
Painted a child a man
and a man a giant.
The heavens
best at their arts above.
but it is giving that perfects the colours of the day below.
Like a day a child was born
to die again for his friends..
Since his days at high school at Federal Government College Ijanikin, Lagos; Segun has been held in awe by the power of words and poetry. He loves to read, write and hang out with true friends
