Olayinka Modupe Oregbemi Poems
(poem inspired by the biblical book of Revelation) In the end, Great gloomy sights shall visit the earth
Let me not feel the coldness of the grave To know how beautiful life is. Let me not lie sickly on cold antiseptic wards
Know You Not? (For Koffi Awonoor)
Know you not who you killed? Know you not the great bard who create words To heal humanity of swollen hate wounds and breaks? Who can grasp this devastation in a gate western?
Paint our eventful past With sleek, masterful bold brushes That their bold artistic ingenuity May fill the colossal canvas of continuity
Love strikes my fragile heart with the force of tsunami tidal wave Blinding in intensity and propensity Encapsulating in radiance
Let me not feel the coldness of the grave
To know how beautiful life is.
Let me not lie sickly on cold antiseptic wards
To know how lucky a healthy body is.
Let me not feel dark hue of blindness
To know how awesome the world scenery is.
