THE WIDOWER :by Abdulhamid sekere

He lived all his life in a gloom. 
After his wife's demise. 
Looking for glow always. 
But he never saw one. 

Always on his face is a gawky expression. 
Made him unfriendly often. 
They tried to keep him chirpy. 
It was never a success.

He pursued every pacifier. 
Behaved like a kook. 
Mentally deranged, they thought he was. 
But he was okay. 
Just staid and doleful. 

Not until the ictus happened. 
He associated with love. 
Loved by everyone, envied by few. 

Never did he jabber to anyone. 
He was lax and friendly. 
With the way he went on,
He never expected the lachrymose moments. 

His wife's death opacated his life. 
Leaving not even a reflection of light. 
Once a cheerful man became so sad. 
I feel sorry for him.

We believe that storytelling answers a major call of humans to share that which is good and enduring. Good stories connect and inspire us and have the power to change the world. What better way to promote the good of man than to create a platform to express the beauty and simplicity of storytelling as an art form! It is our belief that individuals, brands, corporate organizations and the world at large can benefit greatly from this vision, and we are dedicated to continuously delivering value to our visitors, readers, writers, advertisers, our strategic partners and other key stakeholders.
