Gliese 581D (It is what it is) by Eli Oko

I’ve never expected the worse I just accept what things are If I fall I get up Opportunist who takes chance I like floating on clouds Drifting in my space I’ve never dosed of too far So the emotions stay on my face I’ve held on to my roots Like it’s wedged to my hands…

Life is like a Rubik cube by Eli Oko

Life is like a Rubik cube Each mistake we make allows us to learn how to change, undo the mistake and better steps we then take. We in the same thought, want a perfect match in all we aim for. When born they applaud but before the closed curtain, we need to perform great in your career…

If Walls Could Speak

If my bedroom walls could speak They’d ask me why you left They’d beg me to stop being stubborn And to clean up all my mess They’d ask a million questions about the things you’re up to now And I wouldn’t really answer, because I wouldn’t quite know how They’d wonder where my smile went…
