Oluseyi Akinbami Poems

Alone in the world of writs

I stand alone

Dear pastor….
I come in consideration,
That this should be my last resort.
Having sought help from callers not a few.

Let us go
To where?
The church.
The church?

Before you this day
I lay bare
Naked as I come
With no will of mine

I saw on a wall, in the street of religion
an inscription which Reads

'So when you meet


It was just yesterday in September,
He was laid to rest in golden casket

The lion in me,
Don’t dare, I am sold out to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah
You know Him,
I received mercy,

President Olusegun Obasanjo- Atiku Abubakar

Promises of pardoned traitors
Reek like ancient regrets.

As you grow older, they fade into oblivion
The friends you once revered,
The company you once adored,
Like flowers they fade and fall by the way side

Will you try again?
With avalanche of failures,
The peak, the peak or add the zenith, futile, “all labors lost”
Yet, once more I must, ere I die, with dripping blood, though it’s the last once more I must

These old world is filled with wonders
And many beyond comprehension
I speak of these that my little mind knows so less
Than I aught.

This Poem will speak to Peter,
Of the priest and the folly,
This poem doubts not the sincerity of true worshipers,
It will speak to the cult, the club, their Peter, the images of idolatry

This Poem will speak to Peter,
Of the priest and the folly,
This poem doubts not the sincerity of true worshipers,
It will speak to the cult, the club, their Peter, the images of idolatry

Do, please do.
I did foolishly, so foolishly now I am ashamed I did it to you,
Please forgive me; I am still shocked, that I could hurt a good friend like you,
There must be something in me that must be tamed,

Please go for me to south Africa
Not to live but to deliver a message to Mandela
Tell Mbeki,
Tell Zuma,

The sun will shine today.
Though late the night has been,
Through paths so darkened and gloomy
Not for the similitude of our hope

When men were men
They proved their strength in tilling
Providing meat so many
Hoe and cutlass was their tool

To the weary days of time and age
As ever my love till date

When your face wrinkle be

Vain mortal of helpless arm
Weep as though the tears will bring him back.
Aloud, wail! Cry aloud

Maybe never, Yeah
For that was the responce
of the lords,

The Best Poem Of Oluseyi Akinbami


Alone in the world of writs

I stand alone

To mockery because my shoes are worn,

My suit torn.


Because I refused to invest my time

In vanity of men’s wealth

The relentless treadmill of materialism.

The infinity of human thoughts are vital to me

While friends and colleagues

Constant in the mad rush for avarice


When I speak against societal ills

Paid writers mock at me

And call me ‘fool’!

My mind, preaching constant messages of irrelevances

Because I will die a writer.

No money,

No friends,

No foe.


When intelligent comrades backslide

into a reverse and praising of societal tyranny.


When vanity of fame and temporal gain

Reduce men of honour

To a loose dissolved state of lies.


When the courage for truth

Falls to a beggarly withdrawal for fear


When mass comrades reduce intelligence

To cheap Trade by Bata.


When moneybags employ friends

In the service of sly.


When kings and kingdom

Turn greater minds to lesser scribe.


When hunger, pain, loneliness

Stare in the face

For uncommon stance.


Let lies increase

Vanity multiply

Comrades compromise

Hunger kill

Clothes burnt

Impoverished me be

With no friends

No follower

And in the grave

Just like I came,

Alone, Alone.

Oluseyi Akinbami Quotes

Poems are sometimes easily understood, but at other times they are seriously coded for the confusion of the lax and Lazy seekers who usually are unwilling to think

The eyes of poets are not in the visible sockets appearing to all, they carry another type of eyes which sees the obscure, it travels distance like many minds but true poets will not allow an escape of the thoughts without writing it

Those whose souls are tied to friends should never seek to marry, external friendship and marriage or building a home are mutually exclusive. one will give way to the other. 'Two they say shall be one' don't make it three or more

Before Marriage, I read all the quotes on women; very few y are palatable, but i took the risk and i have hundreds more
