June 11 (A Great’s Day)

Wherever the word greatness goes 

your name shall follow 

One of deep mind 

yet on the surface not shallow 

a father indeed 

whom we ought to follow

A mastermind from the Lord above 

blessed is he, to him we say Bravo 

A day of joy, the day ye was born 

It is only right we celebrate but not only till dawn

one so great is forever cherished and adored 

fortunate is we’ whom look up to you as sons and daughters

May everyday start and end for you with smiles and laughters 

one so special, Thank You for being our father 

With the best of wishes I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY 

May you always remain covered with 

the blessings and protection of Almighty Allah.

Heart In Pieces

I gave you my heart 

you shattered it to pieces 

I gave you my time 

you ignored it 

I tried to show you love 

but you neglect me 

in respect to freedom

I shall let-you-be 

the sorrow my heart shall carry

in time the pain shall vary 

but the memory is something I cannot bury

the sleepless nights 

remembering the freight 

how we crashed 

why did you even say “yes”

I was slave to nature 

your smiles with no make up 

you said I was funny, like a stand up

now I see, it was all a setup 

you had me wrapped in your hands’ like a teacup 

I guess the heat I came with was not enough 

saying bye before it began is really tough 

one two..three four…just put me in handcuffs 

I have tried this thing called ‘Love’ 

and have nothing to show for 

the beauty, the adventure, the…is all in short-run 

Alone I mend my pieces 

Never again shall someone put it back to pieces

Love Conversation

Poetry

what is a love affair with just a couple tears 

she said she is feeling kind of lonely 

her heart pumps for mine only 

she said she is cold, “baby can you hold me?” 

it is getting kind of dark can you stay closely 

beside you she said “baby I feel so cozy”

“I have got a lot going on, so I need you beside me”

she reached out..”Baby can you hold me –

your hands locked with mine makes me feel holy” 

she looked me in the eye and said 

“baby do you love me ?”

If I wasn’t here with you, “would you miss me ?”

I know you won’t let me down, 

all I need is you as my trophy 

she leans on my chest and said 

“baby if I break down –

will you catch my…

Thinking Souls

Poetry

she used to be the apple of my eye

one I could give it up all for without thinking twice

the only light in my dark, she shines even at night

never cared if we’ were wrong, in my heart she’s right

O yes! she broke my heart (sigh)..shit, I call it life

I know I am not perfect, but I am usually the one you call at night

talk about this and that, till your eyes close and you are out of sight

welcome to the dream world, it’s looking like paradise

it’s just me and you now, how do you want to roll the dice

It’s obvious a simple roll would suffice

yet you over think it, saying my heart is as cold as ice

a perfect moment crushed

a percentage of the feelings lost

a part of my heart tossed

guess my heart has now’ defrost

thinking…

Te extraño (I miss You)

Poetry

I was going to cut you off

but you handed me the scissors

this should not have come between us

but I know we are both on a mission

I cannot lie and say I understand your position

but right now, we both are in a similar situation

Egos are piking to its full definition

in the beginning you were my best acquisition

you fuelled my joy, you were its nutrition

you let me into your heart with no tuition

just a common goal and mutual feeling

true love and respect with caring

it was me and you against all, for some reason

now its me against you for no reason

our relationship has reached its ceiling

“me and you” now has no meaning

it burns me inside yet my heart is freezing

every breath I take now feels like poison

I thought this was best, but I was mistaken

Familiar Bond

Poetry

Hey brother 

when you raise your weapon for war

I want to be by your side 

Hey sister 

when you raise your weapon for war 

I want to be by your side 

with the wisdom of our heritage above so high 

Resting in peace like the beauty that clouds the sky 

our knees shall never touch the ground 

five strong we stand, each owning a crown 

never shall one stand alone in need

humbled we are together indeed

like the ocean that moves in peace 

when the birds fly free and sing 

strong is the bond like one 

pure is the blood we have in common

from the distance of time 

to every breath that keeps us alive 

together is our name spelt 

glory shall remain under our belt

Knowledge

Raise up from the blue 

morning walk to school 

matching is our shoes 

the books as our tool 

white and brown down our feet 

wisdom and knowledge is what we seek

education is always key 

only listen to what is good

information the brain takes as food 

you are always twice better than what you see 

in the mirror, the reflection that seems 

so why take to heart 

what the voices outside spill 

negativity always shadows positive 

a slip of tongue spells chance to exploit 

the knowledge within comes as shield

a power that make the GREATS live 

knowledge is gold that never devalues 

…that never comes in abundance 

“The more you give to life

the more you get from life”

The more knowledge you share 

the more knowledge you learn

the more peace and satisfaction you earn 

the more ignorance you burn 

the more better and closer to the GREATS you come

So when you see knowledge please DO NOT run

Green White Green

Green White Green 

the anthem we sing 

Practice what you preach

hope you preaching peace 

through every corner, every street

You look after me – I look after you

just as it should be 

Tell me your pain 

for only together shall we gain 

Green White Green 

listen to what the anthem preach

the Eagle and Horse 

the unity from within 

the pledge we all took 

should never go in vain 

“I pledge to Nigeria my country

To be Faithful, Loyal and Honest”

Green white Green 

the story the anthem teach 

not far from reach 

so please do not be weak 

Unmatched is our people by far

open your mind the image gets clearer 

Oh Yes! the story will get better 

no victory in battle nor war 

when even only one struggle 

Green White Green

The adventures of my lovely jungle
