Treasure Island

ogunleye kayode peter

(20th April 1988 / Nigeria)


The world is full of styles
Every one speaks in one mind,
One word, one thought and one heart
All through vocal sounds
My word is not your words
My thought aren’t either
My mind is not your mind
My uniqueness in styles and pattern
Differs yours
What a wonderful style
My habits constrain yours
My feelings are exceptional
Compare to your won feelings
I am a poet, you are a dancer
I am a medieval, you are a painter
My style is idiosyncratic
I speak life in styles
You speak charms and incantations
Speaking all round a circle in a zero
My stylistics features of styles at work
The world is full of cries and sorrow
No where to run to, but the road keeps emerging
Woe to the societal delinquency
Stylistic is taking the world on a global tour
Speak what you see, my ways are not your ways
African, Asians, Europe
The world is diverse
Australia, American, Italy
Speaks in one voices in different
Tongues and styles
Styles, styles, styles
The world is stylistic
Bringing conventional meaning,
and systematic symbolism of language uniqueness

    Yes.. these stylistic approaches are necessary to get on with things in this world. As your experience and age move forward, you will lean a lot ahead. BE IN YOUR OWN STYLES WITHOUT IMITATING ANYONE and your students will like and appreciate you more.Kayode, you are more interesting to read now. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
