Chaos and Birth

 

Chaos and Birth

 

Chaos, destruction and death

  is a prelude to innovative ideas:

Lagos is burnt down solemnly and

  rebuilt with renewed vigour –

The phoenix is born from fire

 

Order, creation and birth

  is a culmination of efforts:

carried on the bloody shoulders

  of Man and his Determination –

The phoenix is born from ash

 

Chaos and birth is a mirror

  reflecting the rising and falling,

the correction of disturbance:

  Nature’s everlasting reinvention.

The phoenix dies in order to live
