Rookie (Akure)


I hear the rumble of sounds
I hear the splashing of waters
I hear the striking of thunders
Sounds from animals not readily discerned
Within and outside my body a feeling
I saw, a feeling far from comprehension,
A feeling that stood side by side with my eternity
Yet I must choose one!

Which chooseth I?

“I stoop to conquer “even though
I’m dying, a furnace being a
Component of my blood.
Where findeth I a physician?
The therapist within my domicit
I have proved wrong

Just because I have seen HER
Juliet, another Delilah, a deceit
Juliet, my only bukky, the picture
Of brightening shadow
Juliet you have made me a liar
Bukola, even unto my very self
Oh goodness, a liar, an adulterer
Just because of a NO
I fell in love, I fell into
Juliet another Delilah
A Delilah we can both enjoy
Another Delilah not quite different

How on earth can I stop loving you?
My eagle crushes in the flight of love
Can I ever swap my feelings for Delilah?
Olubukola I’m afraid

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
