Dark Room Thoughts by Laolu Otiko


I wonder the thoughts of Alex Graham Bell

Seeing Africa from above

Opposed to his creation

Waiting on the sun


I wonder the thoughts of Bob Marley

Seeing our attitude to war

He told us all we need

One love


I wonder thoughts of the Supreme Being

The one we call God

If she really exists

Or of our imagination borne


I wonder what it all means

Answers forth are none

Dying seems why we live

For all that’s come has gone.
