Joba Akinola


Biography of Joba Akinola

I'm a male Nigerian who writes deeply inspired poetry of many forms and themes, transversing politics and love, to spirituality and philosophy. An eclectic poet indeed. I believe that poetry is not an art form intended to be written just for the fun of it, (though it is definitely meant to enjoyed, hence its beauty) but with a wider view to enlighten and heighten social consciousness. So I always say to the modern poet: 'Keep it conscious, if you lose it, your poetry's dead...unconscious.' I also perform spoken word poetry.

For many months we journeyed,
Through too many moments of horrid

paddling through, alongside tall reeds
Till at last we were across the drawbrige.

Many pains walked past our panes,
Many still yet cliimbed right in
Through the window, to be our banes
