Alade Abayomi Idris Poems

If men are like God
They will create their world
And rule it the way they like
And no one to check them.

Must it be you!
Your name they mentioned
When poverty kills.

Ain't you tired of bad names!

We are poets

Users of verses and rhymes

We are back at where we set off
After circling round and round
Like an eagle preying over nothing.

The road I passed all thorn
My determined clothe is torn
And fatigue turning on.

I am your mortal god that loves you,
Your angel that guides
When the sun sleeps
I will be the dew that moistens your feet

Ocean is dry
And fount not secreting
Wind still rove the dry land
In its usual way

The wisest man is a blind man
But the fool can still see
From the minuscule of brain
What transpired in the darkness of night

Everything passes
Such is the nature of things
The time we live in passes
And so are the moments we have

When I was young
I detested being told I was young
I acted the script of adulthood that I conjured in my head
I grew beards with all herbs, and enhancers

When sonorous songs of birds woke me from sleep
And I saw mountains and valleys at a glance
All covered with healthy trees, shrubs and grasses
Glistening gracious greenish green

In the yonder
Where we wander
We were inseparable
Mumble and humble

The man Atiku
Thought his ride would be cool
For many he had wooed
And his name they spewed

We are dusts in the air
Sooner, wind will stop
We will settle whence we came.

Nigeria, my loving nation
My land and home
My resting place when the sun cease to be
How can i ameliorate thee

Great efforts, great rewards
Sow big, reap big
The language used in speeches and banners
In school, at work.

From the horizon
Harkened as the people beckon
The sun of change.

Beautiful mother we call
We crave your love
That never seems to be
The more we reach


Awake from slumber with malice-free mind
Frown at corruption, free feet to run field with
Restive spirit of melancholic
In the sparkling sky eyes

The Best Poem Of Alade Abayomi Idris

If Men Are Like God

If men are like God
They will create their world
And rule it the way they like
And no one to check them.
They will give life at will
And take it without prior notice
They will take praise from their handiworks
And live only by it.
They will be the alpha and omega
Omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent.
They will appear white
Even if they are black.

But men are never God
So sad to help themselves
The soil too hard to till
They only look up to the hill where help comes
Not manner whose cook is unknown
But lubricant to lubricate their cogs
In the field they found themselves.

If men are God
They will live like their maker
Whose image they were created.
