James T. Abel Adesitimi Poems
Beauty Also Is Not Beautiful
The beauty of a grave Beneath maggot reigning The beauty of the brave oh! Hills of self depending

War in her wedding gown The bride of the world Waiting for her groom to come Some say its a conjugal bliss

Long I lain on the couch of my mind Battling with two paths that lead to home eternal where I'll pass when death shall enslave my breathe

This rhyming melody That mingles with euphony From poet fantasy To cherish your beauty

Truely it was the freest and fairest As we inked the paper willingly Along with our collective conscience
Arewa! (Beautiful Belle)
Arewa! The princess of my lord Her face like a shinning gold That shines to conquer my inward part When hatred is battling with my heart
Let Me Ask Myself These Questions
what if i'm dead and buried in an unknown grave? Can i have chance to kill and dig another man's grave? What if i have no head? Can i have chance to cut another man's head for ritual?
The Journey Of Success
Success in a lorry of inspiration.
Driven by determination.
Passenger by preparation.
conductor by condition.
On the road of long-rough destination.
The traffic-wardèn by examintion.
After she has paid the sacrifice, she'll reach her destination.
And the journey ends in jubilation.
