Soulmate

 

Lucky am I to find you

An angel with a precious heart

Who didn’t care if I have no shoe

And isn’t ready to let me off her sight

By whose hand my body love to be caress

And who am not ready to lose by being careless.

 

We meeting is not by chance

I believe it is divine

Never care if we have no fans

Because this our love is hard to define

Which makes it even more interesting

And this our love unending

 

We are just like bread and butter

So sweet and gives satisfaction

Whose togetherness people admire

Which is our point of attraction

And this left people stun

But makes our desire burn.

BEAUTIFUL LIES

 

By my face you said you were captivated
With my beauty you said you were left dumbfounded
With your sweet words I was enchanted
The truthfulness of which I never doubted.

Your words are hard to believe
But at the same time to me a relieve
From you so many gifts I receive
Even when I know men flatter to deceive
Yet your promises I conceive

My head,you carefully and romantically caress
And in between my legs,your love you confess
On your own accord and not under duress
Your promise to me was never to love me less

O!My super hero
Your words in my ears are hope for better tomorrow
On your promise, you,I faithfully follow
And in your comfort, I forgot my sorrow

Alas!
It is just a beautiful lie
Lie which is hard to deny
Beautiful lie that raised my hope high
With the hope that breakthrough is nigh
But all now ends in a sorrowful cry.

So shattered is my heart
For in you I placed so much trust
Even when it is not your birthright
To you I give all my last.

This heart will never lover again
For its custodian has gone insane
Let her be bound in chain
Until cometh a new rain
To make her again sane.

#We need a change
#No more lies

BABY MAMA

 

Let’s journey back to the old days
Days of honor and pride
Where virginity is a treasure
And marriage,every girl’s dream
And children its reward.

Let’s travel together to the days of our fathers
Where responsibility is what makes a man
The welfare of the family, the joy of every man
Days where the cry of a baby
A sonorous song to the ears of of every man.

Let’s now wake up to reality
A world of broken calabashes
Where calabash can no longer holds water
A world that has lost its honor
Where things have fallen apart.

Join me to see a world in despair
Where water is fetched before getting to the river
A world where apple is tasted without payment
The world of ‘BABY MAMA’.

Virginity no longer a thing of pride
And marriage now a thing of choice
The fruit of marriage now an access to bank
For that is easy to manage than marriage
Welcome to the world of ‘BABY MAMA’.

Pleasure is all the men of today seek
And responsibility, not all are ready to take
The pleasurable sound of the lady,they want to hear
The cry of the seeds of their deeds,agony to their ears.

Joy of motherhood to some now an agony of motherhood
Broken are their calabashes and are beyond repair
The seeds of their deeds now a burden for them alone to bear
What a world!
The pitiful world of ‘BABY MAMA’.

Not too late to go back to the ways of the past
The broken calabash could still be pieced together
Dreams could still become a reality
And honor and pride regain
And forgotten would be the world of ‘BABY MAMA’.

 

This poem is a lamentation for the lost ways of the past.The poet reminisce on how things are being done in the past and compared it to how things are done now but could not find a similarity between the past and the present.

Things have fallen apart and even the center which are the parents can not do anything to put things in place.The once cherished virginity which is a lady’s pride is now something of mockery in the modern day.

In the first and second stanzas,the poet called on everyone to think back to the past and see how things are in the past.The days where men were real and ladies of virtue existed. The poet brings to fore the joy of childhood.Unlike now that abortion is the order of the day.

The poet then brought us back to reality.He brought us back to the life we love in right now. A world where things have fallen apart.A world where what we have are broken calabashes. A world where ladies pride are thrown in the bin and a world where real men are rare to find.The poet described the world we Live in as pitiful.

The idea of the west abt having a child outside wedlock has really been imbibed by we Africans who have a different culture and values but because we want to be like the western countries of the world,we decided to neglect our belief and follow the path of the west which has only one ending,destruction.

In the last stanza,the poet raised our hope high,saying that it is not too late to go back to the past and amend our ways.The glory days can be restore if only we are ready to let go of the world of baby mama.

WATER POPPY

 

 

 

On my bed in a lonely room I lay
With no where to go but to stay
With the ceilings my eyes play
Journey to no where,my mind went astray

Outside I was to have a walk
A beautiful flower I saw from my block
So captivating it is,it was to me a shock
With the sight of it,my eyes got stuck

So eager was I to go
Just like the river ready to flow
Right before me was a show
For this,I can’t afford to lay low

The sight of it,so enticing
Its beauty, so captivating
Its moves and flow,so interesting
Where its beat is from,goes beyond my understanding

So tender it feels with my touch
With the river around it,it flourish
Its beauty, I so much cherish
So clean it is,with no blemish

Lasting in my head is its memory
Its beauty I will relay as story
Because for long,I was lost in its glory
And with it,I forgot my worry.

INHERITAGE

A new world,we say we are
A new age,we claim to be
The old age,we claim to forsake
And a new page,we believed to have opened

A new path,we claim to have set
And the right path to us it seem
The path to the new world ahead
Full of hope and joy

The mistake of the past
We all vow not to make
And from the wine of the past
We all vow not to taste

The tomorrow of yesterday we craved
Here it is now with us
And the chance we clamored for
Right in our hands we have it

Shame on to us all
For from our words we have departed
Our path we can no longer trace
And in thin air goes our vow

The old rag of the past
Now our favorite clothes
And the old tasteless wine
Now the toast of our city

Lost are we in our world
The world we believed we own
For it is never ours
But an inherit age.
