Treasure Island

Babatunde Aremu


Alien Walls


We are fettered
Fettered by alien walls
We are barricaded
Barricaded by strange walls
Our ancient walls are pulled down
For these alien walls to thrive

We are walled with terror
We are entangled with hatred
The eyes of our love are blind
We are now walled about with
Sentiments, corruption, racism,
We are encapsulated by greed

Our feet are chained
With walls of mistrust
Our peace has being gullotined
With barb-wires on the walls
We are helmed in and asyphiated
By the alien walls around us

We urgently need help now
To pull down these alien walls
We need fresh air without wall
We want our oneness, trust
Peace and dignity restored
For the sake of our unborn kids

    A passionate and moving poem Babatunde. I hope that together we can pull these walls down and live within the freedom of our hearts. As you so rightly say it is our childrens future lives that are at stake.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
