IF BLACK If the black don’t forgive there would be war forever if we don’t forget blood would paste our road if the black don’t believe to build faith admits molestation if they don’t………….. no white would walk alive   If the black don’t forget how they hang our fore fathers if we don’t forgive how they forcefully take our inheritance if we don’t believe in freedom and be ready to spill our blood if the past is not past no white would thread on our land   If the…

Poetry: In the Cupid’s stone lies her energy and strength

  CUPID’S STONE See her walk down the aisle, With the winds at her command, And the air bending to her wills . An original Wiccan of blue blood. The world oblivious to her strength, Paying no attention to her aura. Disregarding the power in her palms Yet always to the rescue with her stone. In the Cupid’s stone lies her energy and strength, In her stone resides the solution to our fantasies This Wiccan’s stone is the saviour we seek. A mystery from ages past, a pleasure of time…

Personal Reflection: Don’t colour me Anonymous

  DON’T COLOUR ME ANONYMOUS   I would love to be like Lagbaja, but my name is not Tamedu and neither is he my father. My father has a known name, just as his fathers before him and I have mine. The one people know me as, the one people often practice words and antonyms with and all other sort of things one could think of when my name is shortened, but never disregard. It’s such a shame that I thought of giving it up for the sake of expressing…

A Bend in Time: The situation that started out for the best but turned out as unexpected

  A BEND IN TIME (The situation that started out for the best but turned out as unexpected) IN RETROSPECT: Have you ever had your life so planned out and everything falling into place; going as planned as you wished only for everything to turn around and take a nose dive, crumbling within a second?  Have you ever watched everything you have worked for crumble before you because of a variable that you didn’t see coming and never considered? Have you ever had your life so planned out only to realise…

Poetry: Past failures haunt me with guilt, I’m too scared to think

  I BELIEVE IN MAGIC   The world was said to end today; 23rd September, 2017. With the people of the world, I shared a common fear. The fear of death. They were right. Only it was not gonna be the end of everyone’s world. But mine. Just mine. And this was the end. A silhouette of my original self. Today, I ended. I died. My world came to a complete and utter stop. There used to be life beyond these walls. But walls come down. And memories with them….

Poetry: After tonight I shall fight my foes Until their ribs crack

  LICK MY EYES I quiver beneath broken ribs The sea tossed my eyes to and fro Wild heat elates between my thirsts. Burn every carcass sitting On my raging thoughts Craving for my bald head After tonight I shall fight my foes To the teeth of his compound Until his ribs cracks like cabin biscuit Send awful smiles to lit the chest of My golden radiance If alone I can make earth red like hell. Written by Ojo Olumide Emmanuel

Poetry: The Holy Deceivers, do not teach me your ordeal

  THE HOLY DECEIVERS I once learnt conglomeration and configuration Do not lecture me on what I know Do not fool me on what I know Do not preach to me  Do not advise me   Advisers, evil advisers, disguisers of mentality Portrait of darkness, frame work of evil Distinct artistes in contrary   Excellent conglometators of lies, Configuration of lies, manifesters of woes, disguisers of manifestoes   Do not teach me your ordeal Do not preach to me Do not show me the way The wrong sophisticated truth.    Written…

Chain: I’m in the shackles of my dream, I am mourning for my future

CHAIN   Help! Oh heaven I pray someone comes to my rescue for I was born and bred in captivity Don’t think of my last night’s smile I’m in the shackles of my dream Stop building on my jokes I’m mourning for my future Don’t think of the love and smile on my jailer’s face Or my prison…..another man’s heaven Don’t be carried away when my jailer drops millions on my lap Or my meal of king Solomon I’m not the rich kid I’m rather the poor man of my…

Letter to my Lover: It’s been three years since you left, but you haven’t replied my letters

  Letter to My Lover It’s been three years now since you left. The memories we shared are still fresh in my mind. I don’t know how life over there is, but I truly miss you. Remember that morning when you walked up to me, you were lost and your big eyes were very red, maybe out of frustration. You walked up to me; tall ebony god you were. “Hello, let me help you with that” you said smiling. I didn’t oblige. We soon got to the entrance of my…
