From This End by Abuchi Onyema

From that end,
Life looks so embittered
Emptied, and full of iniquities
Bring no good news but casualties

From that end,
Life looks like a battlefield
A ground for the mighty and bravery
Dishing out war and unhealthy rivalry

From that end,
Life was very poor and unkind
Hard, weird and very frustrating
A graveyard for dreams and hope

But from this end
Life looks so encouraging
Inspired, motivated, and achieving
Like a garden where hope is nursed

From this end
Life preach love and kindness
Happiness and faithfulness
Brewed with peace and oneness

On this end
Life brings no worries
But self actualization
And a smiles of accomplishments
