In a glowing and parting tribute to her lovely soul, media personality Ayeni Adekunle wrote a touching poem about life and death…
It’s beautiful. Yet so damn ugly.
It goes on forever. Yet it goes off. Forever.
We live. We leave. Then we live and leave again.
We know everyone. Yet we know no one.
We live every day, yet we live not.
We go everywhere, yet we go nowhere.
We have everything, yet we have not a thing.
We see everything, yet we see not a thing.
We know everything, yet we know not a thing
Full of everything
Yet, full of not a single fucking thing
Why must I sleep for life if I must be awake to find the answers?
Why keep me up when I’ll still end up sleeping for life?
What’s life if it’s full of everything it’s not?
Shall we give her a new name then?
Nah. Let’s call her life.
For what is death but life?
And in this matter of life and death
One is certain. One is not. It’s up to us to decide which is what.
Love you forever, my dear Tosyn Bucknor. Love you. Forever.
You would forever be in our hearts!!
