john chizoba vincent Poems

Dreams will come and go
But i remain right beside you.
I will be around you forever.
Let the world stop turning,

The westerners eat Amala and Ewedu
We eat Akpo and Ofe Nsala
They dance Juju and Apala
We dance bongo and atilogwu the beat of life.

To this brokeness of women, the world flopped and flipped out.
How life flawed and tampered the ice of the girlchild!
How green became red images to their eyes is still a misery to our flammable fable eyes:
of happiness gallopping towards sorrow,

No sweat no sweet
No sweat no sweet,
That is how the song goes.
Waking up all the lazy hands

When a man fall
Trouble begins.
A divided home is created.
Respect and honour hasten out of the door

Like a thunder bolt
The words exploded in her head
She was confused in the noon
History deserted into noun and verbs

Give them the lie
The white lie
Let them do the senseless Dance
Depraved men they are


When our past came calling,
They told us the story of our past

When I was in America
I received an Envelop with my mother's stamp on it.
I saw the red ink boiling on the surface of the book.
I torn it open and watched the words in anger!

The last time i saw her
Was in my bedroom as a heir
The last time we spoke
Was in my heart with a poke

Look at the way he walks
With a torn tattered cloth and broken spirit.
His soul weeps all day long as he
Watches keenly how lizards and rats feast merrily in his house

I believe in the look in your eyes,
I believe in your love and care.
I believe the signal of your eyelids
Because its direct my foot steps

My mother is not at home
Push me not to the corner,
Take not my golden flower
Its for my husband to behold.

Wearily i stood alone,
Emotionally, i cried in tears
Dead in thought as i walked alone
Clueless of what to do to save my people,

Page one reveal the man
He is brought to the world
The nurses whip welcomes him
And he howl desperately to be heard

i want to be remembered for justice and peace
like the humble sons of the land, Gani Fawehinmi
And ken saro wewi; who stood against all odds to deliver those who were captive and the voiceless.
But so sad that those they fought for had returned to drink from the cup of corruption and lost their senses of belonging.

I have emerged from elughu Nkporo to take my place
My life depends on you while yours on me
When the left hand washes the right hand
The right hand in turns washes the left


I Guess We are who we are
Headlight shine in darkness

mother said the best place to laugh is in the graveyard and mortuary.
father told us the better place to cry is in the church,
but, I've learnt that the white place for all these is within you!
because, it gives you a grey freedom,

what about the boys in Pakistan's war front?
what about those boys in Iran battlefield, those boys learning how to pull the trigger with a warning fingers on the crossroad of Iraq & Afghanistan?
what about those boys raped in the street of Nigeria?
those boys in the act of loneliness in the army, what about them?

The Best Poem Of john chizoba vincent

I Want To Grow Old With You

Dreams will come and go
But i remain right beside you.
I will be around you forever.
Let the world stop turning,
Let the air stop its journey to the west
And let the sun stop burning,
Let them tell me if love is not
worth going through in this side of the world.

The dreams that mattered so much to me
In this world is i was loved by you.
If the world fall apart on you
I will be there for you.
Never gone never far
In my heart is where you are
Always close every day every seconds
I know how much you means to me
But it hurt so much when you are not there with me.

Each time we spend together
Make our love grow stronger
I will love you till the end
I will be your true friend, your hero.
To show you how much you mean to me.

I want to grow old with you
DIe in your arms.
I want to look into your eyes
Climb the mountains with you
Sharing in every thing you do.
Your emotions, feelings and tears,
Caress your hair and body
Hold walking stick with you, The wrinkle
We share together.

In pains and love,
I want to grow old with you
Walk through the patient roads
In the shadows of death and tribulations.
Mounted in between striving spirit and hopes.
Our body lied together when the inevitable comes
I wanna grow old with you
For better for worse
In the other phase of life after death.

As John Keats, John Chizoba Vincent uses the concept of negative capability in a beautiful manner. His ideas are very intelligently expressed.
