'Deji W. Adesoye
We Looked The Sun In The Face
Then the sun lit the earth, the sky
Bright released the warmth of godly smile.
The earth in cheerful labour generously produced the various plants that give every flesh means.
Then sudden darkness spreads like blanket on the cheerful mother, She seems to frown, her moan to groan, plants do not grow, everyman tossed in throes.
But the sharpness of heaven’s radiance glimmer on our scalps; the sun has not removed an inch.
We have looked the sun in the face in impudent inquiry
Then dazzled our view.
Our innocent eyes imprisoned in insolent skull offended heaven
The earth has always been cheerful
It is our eye that offended heaven, then offended itself.
