Best Poem of Babatunde Idowu Ebenezer

The Forgiver (For Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu)

Like a spear thrust through a balloon,
You busted my heart,
Like a man seated on a blazing furnace,
You punished my soul,
Yet you want to walk away unforgiven!

How could I ever let you?
If you walked away without my forgiveness,
How could I ever be healed of my pains and sufferings,
That torment my soul during the day and haunt my dreams in the night?
These ghosts that keep me imprisoned in the hell of myself.

If I do not offer you forgiveness like a stranger is offered Palm wine,
An altruistic forgiveness deep from heart and with no strings ...

Weep Nigeria Weep

Fourteen years already gone,
And our tears still flow,
Our vehicles' wheels still jog on the roads,
Our stomachs still ache,
Our ladies still sell their dignities,
Our lads still rob,
Our graduates still beg,
Our children still die of malaria,
Our infants still succumb to polio,
