Abdulhakim Haliru Poems
I thought I knew her only now i know she is deeper than i know. She is a Phenomenal Woman
Split between two, I yearn for you to understand, Yet you paint my imperfection Making a jest of my imperfection.
Ages ago, In chains and whips, They urged us on, With trepidation we yielded,
As for the bow is the arrow, So is the woman for the man, She bends him, yet she obeys him, She pulls him yet she follows,
My Suicide Note
It is a world where; I am the only one that cares for me The only one that advises me I cannot go through the thicks
My fear… My fear is not yesterday, My fear is not today, For I have cited it
O ye life long dream of mine, You are the fruit of my marriage, a life long dream of mine.
O glorious lady, Never before have I seen, A creature, a sculpture, a picture With overwhelming virtues.
O glorious lady,
Never before have I seen,
A creature, a sculpture, a picture
With overwhelming virtues.
O queen of great omen,
Sweetened like the words of a poet,
Glittering like the blinding sparkle of diamond,
I pray; yours is not cruel beauty,
