But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; 
that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

TRANSIENT RADIANCE

 

By Elder Emeka Obiandu

 

Amongst her friends,

She’s peerless in beauty.

Her outward grace

Is nature's favour.

By her distinction,

She is like the lone product

of one creative day.

 

Alas, beauty is but a loan,

With its date and rate.

 

In her hollow pride,

This sublime Elegance,

Shuns the admiring world.

 

Like shoddy wrapped in damask,

Like gold-plated cast iron,

Her essential fibre,

Beauty’s hostage,

Is cocooned in an ornate shell.

But only for a while,

For nothing endures

but the substance.

 

As damask wears and tears,

Time reveals the shoddy.

When iron rusts and flakes,

Beauty departs with its retinue.

Then from her pedestal of envy,

The peerless must take her place,

In the common crowd

of the undistinguished.
