I wrote my pains—the ones I could
give names to—on a piece of paper
& folded them into a plane—of miseries.
I hurled a prayer into heavenly planes.
But how do you spell salt in aqueous fonts?
How do you carry wilting sighs
on the wings of an ellipsis?
Fear is bad weather for a flight!
How can you tell if god is in a bad mood
& would send rain to crash your kite?

The imagery of this piece is deep, I love how the writer paints the picture of how we can take our pains and struggles to God in prayers knowing that only our fears can stop things from happening.

What an awesome read! Succinct. Profound. Thoughtful. Jide Badmus is no novice at churning out creative pieces, this poem underscores that.
