WHAT CAN WORDS DO: A COMMENTARY (by Adaku Agbarakwe)

Miss. Agbarakwe with a copy of 'What Can Words Do?'
Wow! After collecting my own copy of 'What can words do?' by Kukogho Iruesiri Samson...

The book is philosophical and interesting. I enjoy every page of the book and every part of the poems there-in. They were thought out and well written in a melodious libretto.

I love the way he put his words, his idea banks...

Well, thoughts are things - very real and very powerful things at that. Our thoughts of creative written words, success in a worth while endeavour are things... I mean real things. Our ideas do manifest themselves.

What we are experiencing in life (whether we judge it to be good or bad) is related to our present and past thinking pattern but ideas put into action create our reality. We are the directors of events and conditions that takes place in our experience.

Unlike the little kernel that one day will be a huge tree, our fates are not predestined.

 And I also noticed that to have the power of creativity is to hold the golden key that can unlock any door and remove every obstacle.

No limit can be place upon the spirit of a man that he cannot remove through conscious application of his creative nature....

In conclusion, I just want to say a big 'thank you', for this great real opportunity, to the author of What Can Words Do?'. May God Bless You. And Give You More grace for the race..

However, his last poem 'What Can Words Do?' in the last page ( 84) inspired me to pen the following poem below:

WORDS
Words are thoughts and deed
To suit experiences we need
The words we individual hear
May be sweet to the fine ear
Excelling to the attentive one
As much as the geographical sun
Transcends a bonfire made to throw
A light upon some educative show
A simple adage tagged with rhyme
The weighty libretto of a sage
May motivate every coming age
A chorus in its effect maybe
More melodious than Thermopylae
And many a lay that students scan
A nobler coup than Inker man
The writer, Miss. Adaku Agbarakwe is a poet, presently studying Medicine at Imo State University, Owerri.
