Sonnet

Sonnet

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;----------


Sweet Lady, song of my heart,

Hold my hand, as this journey we start.

Lift me up in spirit of joy and gladness;

And shield my soul from heartbreak and sadness.

Steadfast, honest and true;

Your partner is here and will forever love you.


It is my prayer that I will always be;

The one who brings you joy and sets your spirit free.

With my love I?ll cover you and warm your soul with mine;

Give you pleasures ? like none you will find.

Your Sweet Lady, song of your heart;

Will love you forever, together or apart.


So hear me Sweet Lady, and know in your soul;

That there is no better future than with you to grow old.

Endless caresses, touches and kisses;

Our passion a banner for our love?s true existence.

My hand I extend and my honor I offer;

For being with you my love, there is no greater pleasure.


Your hand I accept, and all your love as well;

My heart sings so loudly, all can tell

I am loved and in love with the man made for me

Hold my hand; let us walk through this life

Being what we were meant to be

Together.

My never falling love!!

My Neverfailing Love
Walking with a sunken pain,
I limp every next, for pride.
No faith, no belief, not even
greed, in my losing stride.

Wasted for good, wasted by glory,
I seek an emotion.
Slapped by fate, robbed by time
sensing a premonition.

Well, the times shall change,
the times shall sail.
But the love, for a soul that blessed
my world, shall never ever fail.

Reflection

Please criticize.........

I said those out of intention

Because am already dead proclaimed

----------------------

What a long rope of hope to cope with

hope : a long rope to cope with.

A rope too long to cope with.

All this point towards a point.


Sometimes,

Those dear to my heart

Will be the unwanted art,

Those I can't do without

Are my major cast-out.


It's a pity,

They are my perfection victim 

A thing of the past.


Sara

You stole my heart

On just a sight,

You make me speechless

With care excluding excess,

So nourishing to my soul

That I have to strife

To make you mine,

Though you don't concur to be mine.


Just last week

You told me;

"You are hot tempered"

That am not a true reformer

Co's I block you on this messenger.


Am so sorry dear

I can't keep you near.

To you ,am  attracted

To Jah , am distracted

I can't serve two master.


It's a pity

You are my perfection victim

A thing of the past.

.

.

.

.

.

Nifemi

Yellow like pawpaw

Everybody like pawpaw,

That why I want you

To make you my pawpaw.


Sincerely I love you

I remember those night, 

When our love is renewed.


Now,

Am so sorry dear

Not that am not fair,

But I have a master to fear

Cos he is more than dear.


It's a pity

You are my perfection victim

A thing of the past.

.

.

.

.

Dear kunle,

My bosom blossom friend

Our love has no trending end.

We are more better than Cain and Abel

United's than the sons of isreal.


Together we suck breast of  gentle trouble

Making our neighborhood continuously confused.


But I regret my actions.

Thanks for making me function in a mission

From a vision of eternal damnation.

Thanks for taking me on a journey

That makes me sting like honey.


It over between us

This ends our course

We are now different horse

I have to carry my cross.


It's a pity

You are my perfection victim

A thing of the past.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Dear henry,

a friend that we shit in the same pit

spreading the same sheet on a shit.

we vomit the same unpleasant product 

product that stink like a liquid from a used condom.


I remember those days.

When our parent and teachers cry when we cry

When tears of regret flows the eyes of regret-tiers

But we found joy in those tears,whenever they appear.


We are not meant to meet

We are cars of different fleet.

We are no more the same

Co's I am now dead ; proclaimed.


It's a pity

You are my perfection victim

A thing of the past

My life is in the pen

My Review


My life is in the pen

Deep like its ink

Stiff like its case

Straight as its whole...


It pours out my pains

The skeleton that keeps me awake at nights

The creepy beings in my dreams


O' gentle pen

Leave not far away

For I've found Zion in you;

A shade for me to lay.

A love for all time

A Love For All Time


Breathless kisses

Burning touches

Soft-spoken words of love

Urgently spoken words of passion.

A man and a woman

One complete love

Since time began

Predestined to be as one.

We've been together before

In other lifetimes

We've fought dragons

And have been torn from each others arms

Yet our love prevailed.

We've walked on this earth many times together

Perhaps for a moment

Perhaps for years

But our heart is one heart

And we were meant to be.

So when our time on earth

Once again comes to a close

Have no worries my dear

For we wxill find each other again

And again

And again.

For our love is ageless

Eternal

A love for all time.

You are the one!!

You're the one I couldn't forget
Even at the last breath I take
You're the one my heart longs for
Because I found real joy in you

You're the one I'll love so true
For you gave me same love too
You're the one I needed most
For I am so in love with you

You light my life and turn it right
And put a music in my heart
How can I thank you for all the things
And for the love you've given me?

I can never ask for more because
My life has been complete since
I FOUND YOU!

Oh samira

Oh" SAMIRA 


Am laying down here,

"Awaiting for you dare"

And i heard you're there,

"Not even showing care"


I thought we're meant to be,

"Just only you and me"

So close and tightly, 

"Till the very infinity"


But what have you done?

"You broke my heart down"

And leave me all alone,

"To face my world in one"


I will never forget this,

That you bring me sadness,

"And uncurable pains"

Lingering on my face,

My country!!

My country is for love

so say its valleys

where ancient rivers flow

the full circle of life

under the proud eye of birds

adorning the sky.


My country is for peace

so says the veld

where reptiles caress

its surface

with elegant motions

glittering in their pride


My country

is for joy

so talk the mountains

with baboons

hopping from boulder to boulder

in the majestic delight

of cliffs and peaks


My country

is for health and wealth

see the blue of the sea

and beneath

the jewels of fish

deep under the bowels of soil

hear

the golden voice

of a miner’s praise

for my country


My country

is for unity

feel the millions

see their passion

their hands are joined together

there is hope in their eyes


we shall celebrate

Take your lamp O' mother

TAKE YOUR LAMP O' MOTHER!!

Take your lamp o' mother,
And follow the lighter trace,
For the road is getting darker,
And your child in rifting race,

Gun pointing from the hills
And all setting to be released
With their heart strong like wild rocks
Olden act been drawn on board

Take your lamp o' mother.
For an echoe from the street
Which lead your feature leader 
And you're loosing in every Fiat
 
Run away from tomorrow lend 
For yesterday is rife enough
To be brought back and an board 
O' from the down keep off

Take your lamp o' mother
And follow thy lighten trace
For thy road is getting darker
And thy child in rifting race

Gun pointing from the hills
All settings to be renewed
With their heart strong like rock
And older act been redeemed

Take your lamp o' mother
For an echo from thy street
Is corrupting the features leader 
And they are loosing in every hiat

Yesterday is rife enough
To be brought back into real

Neither me nor you

Neither me nor you, knows the day,

That every storm will come and stay,


To the sound that nature will obey,

When pains of birth will went to lay,


When no more sweet months of may,

When there would be no more delay


When some faces will smile so gay,

While many cry for their price to pay,


Only one prayer, i often would pray,

That when that day has come to stay,


May i and you hear the "sweet say,"

"Welcome kind servant who had obey"


May neither me no you be cast away,

May we not have gone even a little astray,

My Journey::;::::::Ara'a tun ra ri

MY JOURNEY


Ara'a tun ra ri


He release the clinging door,

To ease his grieving heart,

With tears from his brow,

Getting his anky socking wet,


And said --''Ara'a tun ra ri''--

And ''we shall meet again'',

And ''we shall be lovely'',

As ever without ''any pain'',


We would hold our hands again,

And ''walk around the land''

And ''stand as solid one''

In every time, til the end,


Then my weaked heart got up,

And my bitterness filled with bliss,

Upon the stood of living hope,

That my journey will be of peace,


Then I stand and say to him goodbye"

We shall meet again

Every-where soundEvery-where

Every-where soundEvery-where sound silent,

With gentle serene of rift,


And hand writings of sins,

Fading off on bleeding walls,


As the eyes cry out of lost,

Suffering a mid sun-set,


In the middle of a cruel world,

Where justice is left behind,


And pains, bitterness and lost,

Has become modern development,


Loosing friends and those that cares,

Without goodbye nor farewells,


Yesterday was so painful,

Today is also sorrowful,


And tomorrow another day,

I don't know what it will say.

No woman no cry!!

And he said,


No woman no cry,

No woman no sin,

No woman no why,


Shining sun by the day,

Finding a place to lay,

Under the bleeding wrath,

Of awaiting pain and death,


Hold me, hold my hands,

And take me up above,

Upon the land of sounds,

Justice, care and love,


Folk


No woman no birth,

No woman no man,

No woman no death,

My prayer

MY PRAYER


I work so hard to be someone,

Someone rich and well known, 


I try my best all night and day,

I throw my lucks and also pray, 


Hoping to stand firm and erect, 

"But it seems all effort waste"


I try to love and also be loved, 

"As the trees behold the wind"


I kept all my personal need,

And set apart all my pride, 


Hoping that bliss'ill come an' stay,

"But it stand so far away"


I rushed everywhere down and up

With a strong heart full of hope, 


I pray that he the all most high,

"will consider my silent cry"


And bring out help from nowhere,

Beyond my thought the one most rear, 


That i may wipe off my tears,

And at last change my mourning wears,

Why do the bells of Christmas ring?

Why do the bells of Christmas ring?

Why do little children sing?


Once a lovely shining star,

Seen by shepherds from afar,

Gently moved until its light

Made a manger's cradle bright.


There a darling baby lay,

Pillowed soft upon the hay;

And its mother sung and smiled:

"This is Christ, the holy Child!"


Therefore bells for Christmas ring,

Therefore little children sing.

I am writing to say there is not much I need
I will let you choose and no matter I will be happy indeed.
You can get me some crayons or a book or anything that is red;
We get lots of snow so you could bring me a sled.

Thank you Iféoluwá for visiting me
When you get here make sure to look at my tree.
For beside it, I will leave some cookies and milk for you
For the reindeer I will leave carrots to

My mother

MOTHER


When my eyes drop tears,

"Fading out for fears"

You're always near,

"Showing your gentle care"


You mean more than all,

"I can't compare you"

You are my leaning wall, 

"And the best i have knew"


You give me hope to go on,

"Riding up none stop"

And when am falling down,

"You're here to hold me up"


When am fast at sleep,

"I know you always weap"

Making gentle request,

"That i  should be mighty in wealth"


O' my mother, 

"I know i can't repay"

But i will keep on been a trier"

"Until a better day"

I did not die again

I DID NOT DIE AGAIN""

I remember those time when I was Ten
It raining colour's
 I drenched in brown yellow and green

I am a poor boy
With no man or means
But God only save me

Must of them thought I won't grew in life
They call me a wretched begger 
Because my dream is to become poet or a singer 

I am always their topic
Whenever them gather to gossip 
They will mock me
And call me bad nickname.

Whenever they see me!
They get angry at me
Without any offense,

And if you ask them what my offense"
They can't even mention one.

Even if I greet them
They will ignore and mock me'
And if I didn't greet them`
They will rain curses in parable's

When they see me walking by
They will talk bad about me within themselves
They just hate me for no reason..

........
So now I have realized
That it was my brighter future them saw"
That was giving them headchies

I did not die again'
Am delivered from them already

Thank you lord
For all you have done!

I have tried my best

-------------

I have tried my best,

let me leave the rest,

For those who care,

A fate i could not bear,


Always sitting on a fence,

Turning into an offence,

And the longevity of time,

Gradually turning into crime,


If i would not achieve,

To feel an outmost relieve,

Keep me by the road side,

Where peace always reside,


Already tired of framing lies,

Moving up-down like toilet flies,

I have tried my best,

Let me leave the rest,

Traditional love!!!

Traditional love!!!


I fly like a bird

to be where you are,

to spend just an evening

in your place afar.


Beautiful music

and exquisite wine -

never has love been

quite so divine!


But soon I must leave

so kiss me farewell,

the last dance is over

as love stories tell.


I'll never forget

the magic of you,

as I'm flying back home

OH! are you coming too?


Beautiful romance

it's love on the wing,

never has true love


Oh" what a traditional love

Mr Jack

Mr Jack


Jack was at a mile away from home,

"Not knowing his death has come"

To take him, or have him embraced,

And dine with him in the place beyond,


Leaving his wife in painful tears,

And his children, in day time fears,

If Jack had known he would have run,

"Or wait for it with smoking gun"


But poor Jack, never did knew,

Nor did he had the slightest clue.

He had no arms to fight it with,

He would have fought to his last breath.


His friends were blind to see the death,

They would have long put it to rest,

Death came and took Jack away,

"And that was Mr Jack's last day"

Happy birthday

Look at the beauty in her eyes,

a glow that shines like the sunrise.

Her smile opens up the cloudy skies,

her laughter delights butterflies.

The ocean greets her as she passes by.

Her gorgeous toes leave their mark, saying goodbye.


Gentle breeze through her hair,

she walks elegantly while astonished eyes all stare.

Rosy cheeks cover her face.

A flower-child blossoms, kindly accepting embrace.

She is a thorn-less rose without compare.

She is the love my friend heart will forever endear.


Happy birthday to her Yetunde Olawoyin

We are praying

WE'RE PRAYING


From Iran we hear a different story,

"And the west come in another lorry"

Still from Isreal  a different matter, 

"Confusions keep on to hover"


Down to the wealthy country Nigeria!

There legion of innocent are crying,

"Peaceful time for now is over"

There an infant lay down weeping,


Moving down to the country Ghana,

There you will see the real suffering,

Talk more of countries like Liberia, 

"Where woe falls like heavy rain"


When shall we wake up some day,

"And see a brighter sun so gay"

When shall we stop all this crying,

"Heavenly God we are praying"

Truely I tell you this!!

Truly i tell you this

If i am a terrorist,

Over look my actions,

And blame my nature


Openly i tell you this,

If i am some times crazy,

Ignore my craziness,

But blame the blowing wind,


Thoughtfully i tell you this,

If i could die for love,

My father thought me to love,

Blame him, if am gone,


Mentally i tell you all this,

For my legs are tied hard,

Dragfully heading seclutedly,

To that blue psychiatrical hospital,

It is your special day,

Sing out loud and lift up your hands.


Cakes, chocolates and pastries,

Shouldn't be found missing;


How about some Pizza,

Shawarma nko?

With some little bottles of red wine

Made from apple.


The treats are real,

Just say what you want...


We got you

We can have a fair deal!

How about traveling round the city?


Bukaspot


Will some stick meats

And suya

Meet the wants?

I met a new friend

I meet a new friend


It is an holidays, I leave to go to my city Lagos

From offa. A place in Kwarra state


On way going back, suddenly the transport car broked down

In a place where food and water are not match..

It evening it getting dark" no food, no water. And nothing to touch.


The pang of hunger drove me from there

With no idea where to go

I traveled for a miles

Until I reach a village


Knocking on the nearest door

Saying out some clumsy words


Wow  The owner was a beautiful young girl!!

She quickly understand my need

Her warmth blow away my shame

We play and sing till the sunset again

 The wine cup often filled

With the pleasure of new

Am glad I meet a new friend


Her name is Àjóke" The daughter of the late king of the village

My lady

MY LADY


Show me that you love me,

Tell me that you care,

Show me; I have a lady,

So beautiful and dear.


Must I have to always wait,

Fading off in time,

Do I have to end in waste?

Should loving you be a crime?


If this feelings were a tray,

or either a card,

I would have thrown it away,

For it tortures me hard.


But your lips are tempting,

Your heart is pure,

Your face is calling,

And my love for you is sure.


Tell me that you love me,

Show me that you care,

And I will love you; my lady,

Even in a hundred years.

A place A land

A place; a land.


There is a place faraway from here,

Where streams flows still and clear,

And the sun shines glossy and glaring.

And the grass grows lush and green.


Come with me away from here,

Where breeze blows with onus of fear

And the day turns dark and gray

And the night freezes and fay.


Past the lands of the antagonists,

Where the sturbborn weeds grows

And the birds croons lonely and sad.

And the goats bleats infirm and hard.


To the land of beauties and bliss,

Where our long love will be chanced

And our days will be bless

With a fruit; a baby child.

Take me to where poet are!!

TAKE ME TO WHERE THE POETS ARE 

Take me to where the verses are 
To seeds of letters planted on leaves
Germinating into flowering words 
 
Take me to where the stanzas are 
To words arranged in fantastic flow 
Clinging unto lips, diffusing into hearts 

Take me to where the poets are 
Let me marvel at the spontaneity of their muse 
That stirs and spurs the poetic tides in me 

Take me to where the poets are
Let me ogle at the beads of bardism they string 
Like a pendant I'll hang it around my neck 

Take me to where the poets are
Leisurely I'll swim in soothing streams
Of rivulets of their feelings that flow 

Take me to where the poets are 
Let me go sightseeing in their imaginary world 
To be ensnared into webs of their thrilling tales 

I'll be a rudderless ship, stranded 
In the midst of a vast sea 
Without winds driving me to shore 

I'll be a bird of paradise, lost  
In the thick darkness of woods
Unable to fly and adorn the skies  
 
All because you did not take me to where
the verses are, the stanzas. 

And where … the poets … are.

Lie's

Lie's

Touch my heart
Dark and black
Black as bat
Bat that files
Flies at night
Night dim-light
Light my Lie's
Lie's that darken
Darken my hearts

Night

Leave all your worries at side
 Leave all your tensions on side Night is indeed so bright
You do not have to worry about things
 You don't have to worry about the time 
You have some thoughts in your mind Leave them and sleep tonight As you sleep, you will have a reason To leave behind things that don't matter Leave behind everything that Gives you a reason to stress Smile and feel that calmness That this night has bought for you Feel so good tonight, Wishing you a lovely night Good nights

Blind girl!!

 Take care of your self and my eye's

Kolawole Emmanuel


There was a blind girl who was filled with animosity and despised the world.


She didn't have many friends, just a boyfriend who loved her deeply, like no one else.


She always used to say that she'd marry him if she could see him. Suddenly, one day someone donated her a pair of eyes…


And that's when she finally saw her boyfriend…


She was astonished to see that her boyfriend too was blind…


He told her, "You can see me now, can we get married?"


She replied, "And do what? We'd never be happy. I have my eye sight now, but you're still blind. It won't work out, I'm sorry."


With a tear in his eye and a smile on his face, he meekly said, "I understand. I just want you to always be happy. Take care of yourself, and my eyes."

Walk to limelight!!

Walk to Limelight 


She said "go you will be fine

Go son we will smile,

I have nothing to give you but prayers."

Moma, that was enough!


I never knew it would be hard like this

Though I saw it coming.

The Figo you gave me went a long way

I would never forget that pathetic gesture, 

Though sometimes I feel like letting off

But holding to your words,

Those gentle and motivational words

Moma, I am moving on.....


Listen, pedestrians going home,

Those tracing my path back"


Tell Moma,

That I have chosen a fruitful path


Tell my siblings they would smile

Tell my Papa it would be bright

And tell the world that I am coming

For this is my long walk to  "limelight!

Àbíku Omó

Àbíkụ Omó


Coming and going these several seasons, 

Do stay out of the baobab tree, 

Follow where you please your kindred spirits 


If indoors is not enough for you. 

True, it leaks through the thatch 

When floods brim the banks, 

And the bats and owls 

Often tear in at night through the eaves, 

And at harmattan, the bamboo walls 

Are ready tinder for the fire 

That dries the fresh fish up on the rack. 

Still, it’s been the healthy stock 

To several fingers, to many more will be 

Who reach to the sun. 

No longer then bestride the threshold 

But step in and stay 

For good. We know the knife scars 

Serrating down your back and front 

Like beak of the sword-fish, 

And both your ears, notched 

As a bondsman to this house, 

Are all relics of your first comings. 

Then step in, step in and stay 

For her body is tired, 

Tired, her milk going sour 

Where many more mouths gladden the heart.

Past!!

When I turned my back

and walked away from her

After she's spite to my face, 

words that hurts my heart.

I know deep within me

that there is still a place for her

Somehow; somewhere, 

I couldn't identify.


But I took to my stand 

and never stopped walking.

Carrying my past on my back

Like a school bag,

And saying 'hi' to every chance that crosses my path

With a little mix of regrets. 

And a little touch of hope.

I will dance with you

Olólúfè Mí
I WILL DANCE WITH YOU

I heard the tides
Rumbling in rhythms 
From the depths of the seas
Into the very core of my Soul
Waves of longing
Held me in deeper
My feet of hope slowly tapping!

I WILL DANCE WITH YOU
In high tides...
In low tides...
From sunrise...
To sunset...
At the shore...
Of our love my Soul mate!

I heard the seagulls sing
The song of longing
From their lonely hearts
Into the emptiness of my Soul
Lullaby of hope
Uplifted my faith
Soon my love you'll be here with me!

I WILL DANCE WITH YOU
In rainy days...
In sunny days...
From Spring...
To Summer...
At the shore...
Of our unbridled promises!

I heard the wind whistling
The secret tunes of our Souls
From the shore of your heart
Into the port of my heart
The tune of belonging
To the one I'd been waiting
I'll remain faithful to you Ololufe mi!

I WILL DANCE WITH YOU
In windy fall...
In snowy winter...
Thoughts of you...
Will keep me warm...
At the shore...
Of our love everlasting

Give thanks

Give thanks


Happiness is like dewdrops

They vanish at the strike of sunlight.


Somewhere in the dark corner of my room

I often stoop

Pale as the haggard features of despair,

Broken into pieces

And heavily hearted like a defunct nightmare!

Gradually 

melting

like

a

candle

stick.


Life is hard

Especially in this part of the world.

I can't help it but to rattle,

That God wrote some destinies with a golden pen

But wrote mine with a pencil

That breaks, now and then.


But whenever my world is dark as now

I often remember Mama's words


She said

"In everything give thanks

Why are you sad!!

WHY ARE YOU SAD?


Dad, why are you sad

That your little lad

Became a bard?


Dad, why are you moody?

Or are you still angry

That I slept with poetry?


But Dad, haven't you read?

Or have you not heard

What the prophesy said?


Besides, the honeybee

From the poe-tree

Has bitten me.


In fact, all my phalanges

Are infected with the disease

The disease called poetriasis.


So, why are you sad

That your little lad

Became a bard?


Even the late Shakespeare

Did ate the poe-tree pear

And was known every where.


So tell me dad

Why you are sad

That I became a bard.

Treasure!!

Treasure!!

In a world so cruel and unkind
A child is born with a heart full of gold
And a soul that can never be defined

Her beautiful eyes that bring out her sweet little face
Can light up a room
That the whole world can embrace

The brightness of her smile
Brings joy to my life
And keeps my heart beating for miles and miles

As the days pass us by
This sweet little girl is starting to grow
And the memories we had I will always keep inside

The warm feelings that I feel when she's around
Comfort my heart
And I'm glad of the treasure that I have found

To me she is my diamonds and pearls
That no one can take away
Because I will stand beside her until the destruction of this world

Happy Birthday to loving girl
My Aunty Daughter Arike Sarah

You are always on my head, 

Near or far, in your presence,

 my heart starts to race


 you are my support system 

with you every trouble, I am ready to face


Like a million stars up in the sky, 

You shine brightest and I can't deny,

 A love so precious, a love so true,

 A love that comes from me to you. 

You make my life complete 

In heaven too, 

We shall meet

Nature

Nature


Nature is indeed so pretty 

Nature is so beautiful and creations so good 

All the colors of life you can see 

All the shades that let you be 

Nature gives you a feeling of being so real 

Forgetting about the world around you

 The tree that sways gently

 The air that comes on your face

 The rivers flow with an amazing sound 

Sunset also has a grace 

So pretty creation of God it is It

 makes the heart just sets in 

Nature's beauty can't match up 

With anything in life 

It gives you solace of every kind! 


 The natural beauty of nature has so much to say, 

The beautiful crossroads and long way,

 The nature has its charm, 

Keep it safe and do not harm,

 The nature will only keep you  safe,

 If you  also keep it safe:

will you ever know me

will you ever know

Lonely I drift aimless
Come back ease my pain
Show me how do I bear this
Unbearable world again

I pray for most of you for joy
May my prayer not be a falling ploy

I keep looking back
To see what I have become 
I find myself lost
Oh' where have I come?

Will you ever know
Will you ever come

sad!!

The little pieces of my heart are just broken,

 I have seen them falling apart, 

I can feel it bleeds,

 I never had any role, In your story,

 You left me without thinking twice,

 And I was all shattered and sad,

 I don’t know what it was, 

But it was nothing like love


. I cannot solve all my problems, 

But you promised to be with me always, 

Why you still make me smile, 

When my sadness is just because of you, 


The saddest part is I want to cry and lean-on, 

But there is no shoulder I can see around.


You messed the most beautiful song,

 That I write and used to sing,

 Everything was good until she came-in,

 You were happy to see here there, 

You left my hand and get off there, Since that day, my all songs are sad, 

I just can’t find why can’t I be mad?


Please come back I feel like dying, 

My world seems painful and not worth living, 

I lost you, love, 

Just at the same place,

 It was never about letting go, 

It was always about holding on, 

Love never leaves but I believe those soul mates do.

My life is in the pen
For it pour out my pain
Filling me with parity 
"And real sincerity"

It express my thought
Even when I am silent
And keep memories down
For the the next generation

It doesn't lie nor die
Albait it always cry
It come black red and blue
And sometimes it give a clue

Oh gentle pathetic pen'
Always loosing not gain
For I found Zion in you"
A peaceful place for me to earn

Death

 Death


I ask for freedom for the ones that left 

No I am not in the state of deft

 Everything has to go one day

 So accept it with a graceful say 


Death takes away all the things

That matter in time and beings

 Death is a reality which one does not accept

 Things that are left to be seen


 Do not fear death as it will come along 

It will be the end of your wonderful song 


But a start of another for sure


I did not leave I did not leave, 

I Just changed my way,

 I am not able to say, 

But, I am the wind you feel,


Don't come at my grave and cry, 

Don't show me you are that side to me,

 I may not be able to see,

 Death is a harsh reality and everyone has to go,

 My friend you must also know,


 Live your life as you used to live before, 

Don't cry for me as I will feel sad, 

Stay blessed as I love to watch you smile, 

This gloom is not forever, it is for a while!

Chicken

Chickens 


Last night I dreamed of chickens, 

there were chickens everywhere, 

they were standing on my stomach, 

they were nesting in my hair, 

they were pecking at my pillow, 

they were hopping on my head, 

they were ruffling up their feathers 

as they raced about my bed. 


They were on the chairs and tables, 

they were on the chandeliers, 

they were roosting in the corners, 

they were clucking in my ears, 

there were chickens, chickens, chickens 

for as far as I could see... 

when I woke today, I noticed 

there were eggs on top of me.

Buried Alive


Inside that feeling of depression..........

It's not just a silly superstiotion...........

It's hard to make this confession........


I'm buried alive.................

I believe that no one can help me to survive.............................

I'm sick of this pathetic life...............

and i think it's all based on a horrible big lie..................


still there..laying there

inside that fearful place.....

where a feeling of death hung upon the air..........

oh god this's so unfair.............

my life has become an abhorrent endless nightmare................


inside that gloomy place..

where every thing is dark and..........

and the sun will never shine upon my pale face................

oh god how can i get rid of all these choking scares? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

how can i get out of this frightening place............


so hard to get rid of the weight of thise feeling laying inside my brittle poor heart...........

this feeling of depression it makes me fall apart..........

Samantha'



Your light chocolate smooth skin,

Bright expanded shine of your eyes,

Dreamy smile causes my world to spin,

Your beauty is that of flowers nursing butterflies,


I fell for you not knowing where to land,

I tried giving you all i had of my heart,

You rejected me, i don't understand,

We not made for each other it breaks my heart,


You fall for people who claims to love you,

The jerks, cheaters, players and liers,

Forget about the one who's heart means true,

The 1 your name is written on the heart with fire,


Your words 'move on',

Unbearable and revealed your self-centredness,

Your words came with a song,

'No matter how far but I'll never stop loving you'.

Am a hustler

I am a hustler 


No sleep, no rest,

I give it my all,

And become the best,

I stand my ground and try not to fall,


I am a hustler who hustle the puzzel of success,

I am the mind that finds the bright on the light,

I take no fake ideas, regardless of gender or sex,

All my plans should be in black and white,


I'm a hustler that doesn't quit,

Smile on my face but tears in my heart,

I remain humble and kind to fit'n,

There' is always things to keep and some to cut,


I'm a hustler of the day and night,

I am a hustler known as a fighter,

I am a hustler that deletes negative from my sight,

I am a YOUNG BLACK TOP HUSTLER

If I could chose to come again

 If I could choose to come again


If i were given a chance to be born again

 I guess it won't change anything in my life

 I would enjoy the best part of my life

 And the worst i would welcome it with two hands 


some would want to be born as billionaires 

But for me i would gladly accept the poverty i have 

I can see you laughing at my decisions 

But sorry am poor physically but my mind is more than a gold


If i could choose to be born again

 I would find the day i cried the most 

The tears i shed makes me stand where i am today

 

If I could choose to come"

 I would pray the day my heart was broken to come

 because it taught me how to fix it 

Those time that i tried to love myself

 Then i realized no man is an island because God was still loving me


 I would celebrate the day i was depressed 

And the day i thought i was most stressed 

I would wait for the day my life was messed 


Because through all this I was blessed

Tell me if it was a crime

To spit out my heart for love

That I have been waiting for so long.


Now it fall on me

A wanted' that won't be found

For anything I will do for love.


Tell me if it was a crime

To tell a lady" I love you'

A Lady you have been spying for long


Tell me if it was and offense

That she told me' I don't love you

And she is my last hope to love


Tell me if it will be a crime

If I kill myself for having loose

The loose of the lady I love

ZAYNAB!

So wonderful and caring
She call me when I feel lonely
She chase away my fearing
Zaynab is her name
A sound with beautiful hearing

I found a girl! 
She change me for good
And gave me a better song
To sing when am in need
And say when things go wrong.

Zaynab is her name
With her my spirit is free
And endow with bliss and purity 
From the science arena of glee"

Pain

pain

Every day I wake in pain
Because I was born in it
Living without rest
I have no faith 
Coz I can't control the pain in me

Some night I would stretch my hand forward's
Finding how to return my good's
Knowing someday I will find peace to hold
Living in world of word's

Am living in world of word'
They don't give but them need
Bragging on a sandy ground
Running side by side around

But I know I won't die broked 
I know someday it will be good

Who will hold me tight

who will hold me tight

Sun raising and falling
Kissing the mountain pick
Strong wall falling down
Because they are weak

O" could she be the one
Who will hold me tight
Can she hold me tight
Till the very eternity

O" I need somebody
Who will hold me tight
I hope she will stay 
Till the very eternity

Sun raising and falling
Kissing the mountain pick
Strong wall falling down
The great peoples are weak

Sitting lonely on a broken wall
And there she sat alone
Gentle tears falling down
Embittering her gentle heart

On a broken wall we are
As gentle tears falling down
Through out that day and night
On a mango tree we sat

Mother word's

Mother's word


Run but don't rush

You are missing to much

Look but don't touch

Just know there is enough


FIll your cup

But don't take too much smile,

And show your colors 

Chase dream and not dollars


Don't dwell and don't wallow 

In loneliness lies and sorrow

Don't stress today

And never fear tomorrow


And don't let mother words

Ever sing hollow

Kano nigeria

I have traveled far and wide 

Carrying secrets 

and scars 

From dry hot lands to greener pastures

And gathering treasure books; 

Photo albums 

Where in all of them I stand alone! 


I have watched the sun rise 

And how it set with dearest old friends.

Birthdays flying by 

Christmas on trains with coffee cups 

New year eves 

In cities I don't even know. 


I found faith but chose to doubt it. 

I found love 

But live without it. 


Every day I keep hoping 

That someday I found peace to hold onto 

But then I keep fading away 

Family don't even call no more! 


Some nights I would stretch my arms 

Forward 

Like solutions would fall 

From the skies 

But then I realized 

That there is no such miracles 

No more. 


If my letter gets to you 

You are the family I have left...

BY: AYORINDE EMMANUEL OLOWOEYO 

Whenever I day dream,
and day dream I do,
in my secret garden,
I day dream of you.

I day dream of you,
in a faraway land;
embracing me tight
and holding my hand.

Holding my hand,
and touching my face.
Just you and me,
in this peaceful place.

In this peaceful place
a pristine river flows.
Where the unicorns run,
a breeze always blows.

A breeze always blows
and sings of a song;
our love in a place
where you're never gone.

Where you're never gone
is as it would seem,
from dusk until dawn,
whenever I day dream.

And whenever I day dream,
and day dream I do,
in my secret garden,
I day dream of you.

Rich Dad

 Rich Dad

BY: AYORINDE EMMANUEL OLOWOEYO


One day, a rich dad took his son on a trip. Wanted to show him how poor someone can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On the way home, dad asked, "Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?"


Son said, "We have one dog, they have four, we have pool, they have rivers, we have lanterns at night, they have stars, we buy foods, they grow theirs, we have walls to protect us, they have friends, we have encyclopedias, they have Bible." Then they headed, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."


MORAL LESSON: It's not about money that make us rich, it's about simplicity of having God in our lives.

My true love

My True Love


I have a feeling

That I can comprehend

In my deepest thoughts your are

More than just a friend.


I wouldn't want to

Rush us now

As love we explore

But there's a growing love inside

That we just can't ignore.


I love the times we

Spend together. We are comfortable

And free. I think of you when we are

Alone. I think of you and me.


We have a share

Secrets to uncover. There’s more

To life then we will both discover.

I love you always.


I’ll love you when you're dumb,

I’ll love you when you're smart,

I’ll love you anyway you are,

Right from the start.


I’ll love you if you're tall

I’ll love you if you're short,

I’ll love you if you're pretty,

Or just an ugly dork.


I’ll love you if you're toothless,

I’ll love you if you're blind,

Anything that's wrong with you,

To me you'll be fine.


My heart is opening up now,

Unlike it used to do,

I see the pain that's in your heart

And sometimes I feel it to.


I’ll love you tomorrow,

I’ll love you today,

I’ll love you forever,

And forever always.

who or what should we love must

Who or What do we love more?


A man was polishing his new car; his 4 yr old daughter picked up a stone and scratched on the side of the car. In anger, the furious Man took his child’s hand & hit it many times, not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.


When the child saw her father, with painful eyes he asked ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless. He went back to the car and kicked it many times. Devastated by his own actions, sitting in front of the car he looked at the scratches, His daughter had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.


Moral: Remember, Anger and Love have no limit.  Always remember that “Things are to be used and people are to be loved”.  But the problem in today’s world is that “People are being used & Things are being loved”.

Take your lamb O" mother

TAKE YOUR LAMP O' MOTHER!!


Take your lamp o' mother,

And follow the lighter trace,

For the road is getting darker,

And your child in rifting race,


Gun pointing from the hills

And all setting to be released

With their heart strong like wild rocks

Olden act been drawn on board


Take your lamp o' mother.

For an echoe from the street

Which lead your feature leader 

And you're loosing in every Fiat

 

Run away from tomorrow lend 

For yesterday is rife enough

To be brought back and an board 

O' from the down keep off


Take your lamp o' mother

And follow thy lighten trace

For thy road is getting darker

And thy child in rifting race


Gun pointing from the hills

All settings to be renewed

With their heart strong like rock

And older act been redeemed


Take your lamp o' mother

For an echo from thy street

Is corrupting the features leader 

And they are loosing in every hiat


Yesterday is rife enough

To be brought back into real

My brother to war

There's more to the story,

than what just appears.

A war written story,

from blood and from tears.

My brother  went to war,

a very proud man.

He fought in sabisa

on the hot desert sands.

He witnessed his buddies,

his comrades, his men,

bleeding and dying,

he witnessed their end.

He said take care of My brother 

He's blown up all around,

his comrades spent hours,

picking him from the ground.

Sleeping in holes,

dug in the sand,

dreaming of home,

but it's become foreign land.

He can't tell his enemy,

from family or foe,

as he watches his friends sent out,

with tags on their toe.

He knows his Mama,

is sleepless like him,

and he tries to send word,

whenever he can.

He tries not to worry,

his family at home,

the horror that he faces,

he faces alone.

His mission is over,

he's sent back to me,

he fought for our freedom,

but he'll never be free.

He yearns for his buddies,

that died over there.

He's caught with the living,

in a doubled looped snare.

He screams in the night,

for the battle still roars,

as he lays in his bed,

he re-lives all the horror.

Nobody heard the fight,

he still fights,

except for his brother ,

who comforts him every night.

He never will be,

the brother  I once knew,

the war killed that part,

for freedom, for you.

Great Nation, Great Leaders,

and all those who will hear,

Freedom began

on a brother dearth

AWELEWA!

AWELEWA!


I was at the river bank's

Watching at the beautiful act work's

Of sango olukoso

Striking thunder like fire out break's

When I heard your beautiful voice's

Singing ewe of two lovers bird's


Your voice is sweeter than asaro koko

Smoother than iyan isu

And warmer than aro gari

.

The God's of sango olukoso as lead me to you this evening

Let IFA take the wheel

And do it will tonight

Tomorrow is her birthday

Tomorrow Is Her Birthday


So generous and kind in her own charming way 

Tomorrow for her will be a special day

Her birthday she will celebrate 

She looks well though she has been ageing of late 

A beautiful person so loving and kind 

Her very equal would be so hard to find 

A good Girl and to me she is beautiful one

She is one who is a great success in life 

Easy going and she makes friends easily 

The good in a good person is not hard to see 

A beautiful smile on a beautiful face 

The good in humanity she does embrace 

Tomorrow is her birthday hope she enjoys the day 

About her she does have a beautiful way.


"Please help me wish her a wonderful day"

Am from here!

How many times would I tell you 

That I am from here? 


My father was the Mayor 

Of this city, 

Respected 

And loved by his people; 

Worshiped like a god 

Before he slept, never to wake up again! 


That huge gray mansion 

Was ours. 

My room was a boycott to the main mansion 

Painted red and black 

With a photograph 

Of us - me, my mother and him 

Fixed on the wall 

Before it was sold by his wife. 


My mother was the first wife 

But his second wife 

Was the legitimate wife, 


You know the system... 

I am not a lawyer. 


But how many times would I tell you 

That I am from here? 


From this very city.

Why did you choose me!!

CONFUSED


Beautiful blessed lady

Why did you choose me

Am not handsome

Nor my pocket blossom,

With gold and silver,

Am just a weak brother

With just a little to render,


Am struggling for fame

But still low all the same

"Trying to be someone"

Known all over the nation

But I have no honey

My pocket is out of money

And am living my life gently


I can't solve your need

"Could I give you bliss"

I don't really know,

My words is cold than snow


Oh beautiful blessed lady

Why did you choose me

I can't fill you with glee


Friends I always wonder 

"Sometimes I ponder"

On how most lady reason

O' they are amazing


Beautiful blessed lady

Why did you choose me

"Am not handsome"

Nor my bag blossom's

Am just a weak brother

With just a little to render.


Thanks for reading!!!

She is not my wife

For she is not my wife.

Let her remove the adulterous look from her face


For I will take away my grains when it ripe

And my new wine when it ready

I will take back my wool and linen

And expose her back to the place.

She want to stay'


She burned incense to the baals

She ding herself with ring and jewlrey 


And went after her Lover's

But me she forget

If I have a wings

IF I HAVE A WINGS

I will fly away,

To sing a bittering song

For woe as made my day


My tears are flowing down

Socking my white shirt with wet

With a bewildering tune

Of wane and sudden reft,


It hurt when out of love

Or loose of a caring friend,

But interruptions from above

Could call" to comprehend


Let me sing a songs

To ease my grieving hearts

And keep away my hung

From the Aromas of rift

T challa is gone

T'chala is gone

(Black Panther)


Call the town crier

Tell him to come 

with his flute, 

with his drum.


Call the elders

Tell them a child 

died at their watch.


Call the mothers

Ask them how the child 

fell off their back,

Didn't they tie him well, 

With òjà àbíyàm'ò? 


Àbìyàmò! 

Tell every body 

to start mourning.


There shall be 

no celebrations today...

No fist, neither of the gods


Òbá ti wájá


Ọba tí wàjá 

The King is dead.

T'chala is gone.


Beat the drums! 

Let it be known

Even to the smallest creatures!

The king is gone!


In remembrance of how late brother black panther

I shall tell you about ghetto

I shall tell you about ghetto

"For there someone lies hill tomorrow"

In where law and justice abide

And common people with nothing aside


Alas! For there human never rest

And sad memories always would be remember

"When no companion to call us dear"

And no helpful plan we can y-ear or hear


I shall tell you about ghetto

Where many, were born to

"Including those people call reach men"

But no one of them could help main


Come let me tell you about ghetto

"Hope you will understand our woe"

Come you also come" tell them to come

Come and hear the un- told issue name


It is of sorrow and bitter pain

"Which fall on us like a rain"

I know it just  a game

Because we won't grew up thesame

Now I hope you will come, 

And hear the un- told issue name


Here we sleep and wake

Like a bread on the fire to bake

Thinking of what tomorrow will say

And looking at our leaders ray


We are the ghetto

Who live on a solid wane

Thinking of what tomorrow will bring

Not pray not bitter relations song


Here we stay and live

And no one Will help our life

We know our leaders are rich

Alas! It is our money they take to be rich


Here we hope in wane

And always work in pain

For we won't still to eat

Though they take us for there feet


Now we are weak to pray

"If they will help us let them say"

For we are tired of here

And we wish someone could care!

She is my sister's

Angelic face and full of laughter 

Pretty as lilly and pure as water 

Querrelsome at times...that doesnt matter 

I love her a lot...she is my sister 


When the times were tough 

She made me smile 

Compassionate as a mother 

Soothing like the waters of Nile 

Angry at times..does that matter? 

I love her a lot...she is my sister... 


Teasing aside...she is so dear... 

Pulling her leg is my favourite game... 

Crinking my ear on hearing her name... 

Yet she cares for me like the mother.. 

I love her a lot...she is my sister.. 


I pledge today to protect her always... 

Look after her on all the days.. 

Make her smile when she is sad... 

Stand by her side when the times are bad... 

Try my best to be a good brother... 

Anything for her because she is my sister

Have seen Angel work on earth

African woman


Poem 1


I have seen an angel walk on earth

I have seen a woman with a brave heart

Her ebony skin glows with honour and pride

Her words give hope of turning the tide.


She is the true definition of beauty

A gem so elegant in her glory

Her radiance is far more than the gleaming stars

In fact, her colour casts shadow on the stars.


Abeke, the sacred jewel of Africa

The priceless princess of mother Africa

A maiden with unblemished character

A belle of beauty to anyone who beholds her.


Her care is lightened by the sun of her eyes

Her love makes shattered battered souls to rise

And like an eagle's flash, her beauty strikes the hearts.

Her sonorous voice, a lyric to tame wild hearts.


Abeke,

A maiden so virtuous like her mother Ayanfe

She is the song of the birds at dawn

And blessed be the day she was born.


Poem 2


Naked woman, black woman;

The night is too dark to compare your skin

Clothed with the colour of life

But you are beautiful than the night


The sun is too shine to compare your teeth

A paradise of promising smile;

The glory of the star and moon fall under your feet

Yet; you shine more than the sun


There is more to the color of rainbow

Naked woman, black woman

Like the pinions of dove cover with silver

I sing of your beauty

Pitch-dark like tom-tom but radiant like the sky


How on earth can I forget thee

Oh! black woman?

For In your shadow have I grown up...
