Oluwatosin Thomas Poems

With your tongue filled with sores, your lies spread forth like a bomb.
With your blabbing throat, terror echoes on like a war on my coast.
A promise of an imaginary world, my soul longs on like a rod.

Time is the unit of measure,
And the clock begins to tick again.
With enough time to fix my errors,

In the wake of the 6th day of the 9th moon,
The hen barks and dog crows,
Sun in the night and moon in the day,


The ills of yesterday pulled you down,


At the crest and its lowest part
We've been together.

I have heard tales and experiences,
I have encountered plays and replays,
Delved into the realm of staying alive and game over,

Relax, and read the lyrics of this poem,
Sip your wine and feel the diction in its realm,
Be not afraid of the fear of unknown realm,

At the well of my muse,
To put my pen in line for lyrics against you,
Yet you provided me suitable dictions despite my intention,

Bring forth the cowries, dice it on Opele,
Lend me the magical crystal of Nehatade,
Lest we know what the future holds.

When your mouth inhales the words from mockers,
And your eyes get flooded with tears,
When you make an exist in a channel of entrance,

I wish i could alter the nature,
To bring back Zamani time frame,
Living again in the days of the past,

Have you ever felt like a paper bag?
Drifting through the claws of the wind,
Like a tattered kite,

I once believed when i was seven (7)that we live in a wild world,
Where our beliefs were that we're bigger than the wider world.
I made my hopes high by pushing myself to the limits of things,

Could this be the best of me?
If one's happiness reveals the hatred in me,
Praises sounding as psalms of condemnation to me,

Many years ago, a light came through to the world,
Which became the path to all tunnels of existence,
We believe in this light for in the creeds of our heart,

To myself of fearless Lines,
For the lady in my visions of souless soul,
My marks i must relay as i lay off my confession,

My future not yet certain,
For my present is undefined.
Roaring in the wasp for air,

Many years ago, under the mango tree in ayekooto village,
I heard the tales of asin toun tokere, Ijapa and yanibo.
Days passed and years perched as i sailed to the land of Akobo,

The Best Poem Of Oluwatosin Thomas

Hate To Love

With your tongue filled with sores, your lies spread forth like a bomb.
With your blabbing throat, terror echoes on like a war on my coast.
A promise of an imaginary world, my soul longs on like a rod.
You pierce my piece with your irregular lines, yet i made it a stanza of rhythmic lines.
I saw your fingerprints, but i felt it's just an imprints.
I raised a glass to make a toast, you burnt my hands to coast.
You knew my purpose and ruined it by your action, i thought you wanted to propose and got lured in by my emotion.
You said it was my fault and I'm too blame, but i knew it wqs your plot and i got the flame.
You claimed to give your all, but i also gave my shawl.
You claimed i tore your heart to pieces, but you also sore my muse and ruined my poetries.
You concluded I'm a bad omen to your feeling, but you ruined my life and lost my sexual healing.
A time to reshuffle, a moment to end this puzzle,
You mishandled all, never wish for it to be rekindled at all.
An end must come, a new beginning must turn.
To have a world my own, and shun the lord of your harsh tone.
To hate you, in order to love me.
And to lose you, for every reason to have me.
TEE-THOMAS (Fearless Lines)

As buttons are directly in opposite to the designed holes of a shirt, and yet humans generally mix it up.

The world has grown to the peak where it has no reward anymore for HARDWORK. If you believe your sweat is the solution to everything, your story will be like a man who feeds of yeast everyday with no clearer vision.

Just because you can scribble some words into stanzas doesn't make you a poet, and that you can cook up some sentences into articles and journals doesn't make you a writer.

MAN: In relationships, a man's handset is like an Onion, the more the woman opens it the more the tendency she will cry. WOMAN: And a woman's handset is like money that attracts your sight, take off your gaze and you will forever be cherished, live on it and your value will deplete.

Do you know that not all risk taker is a life builder, and not all workaholic is a success maniac? Stop being busy over that which is not productive to your essence, and stop channeling your strength to that which is effortless. What is required is simple, swim your ocean in the sphere of your skills. And know its depth to know the kind of ship to sail on.

That you force yourself to run when you should walk does not mean you've escaped the fall, you only exchange the phase, soon you will come back to crawl when you should fly.

It may take an hour to like someone and a day to love someone, but life will always require the least version of the two to hate someone.

The level of your wisdom in life is not a measure of your knowledge towards that which you want to do, but is a reflection of the level of your understanding towards the knowledge you possess. © Fearless Lines

Do not hang your pen when your ink is still bleeding, do not force yourself to write a book when your muse seeks to be a poet. Don't stop the guitar strings when your song is still being played, don't throw away the drum sticks when your hands can't stop beating it. Don't substitute your cast for a role that you do not fit, Do not compromise your quote when your stanza seeks completion. In all, do not force yourself to be who or what you're not to loose who you really are. If you miss the flow, try again till you reach your gains.

To the minds of people that were once assaulted before in any form of abuse irrespective of their gender, do not motivate them or try to give them hope, for in the process of healing, the past might reappear again in terms of action or memory (P. T. S. D) Don't give them justice for it has a way of finding its own people, besides no one can give you justice, you rather take it yourself. Give them something greater; bring them vengeance.

Success is not a determinant of the quantity of what we've attempted, rather it is a reflection of that one thing that resonates with our being, our existence. Finding that one thing is success on it's own and at the same time the key to all.

We may live life with caution and also live it carelessly. Lest, we fall or we rise. But Which ever way we choose, we must live life like we do not exist in it and exist in it like we do not live. As it is not an entity where carelessness can be totally withdrawn and too much caution can be laced.

People who do not care about what you lose, should be given less concern also about what they gain.

If I say it once I would implore you to hear it twice, that there's no display of maturity in being a changed person by rejecting that which will benefit you from people who once made you feel worthless, prove your worth by your refusal towards the same shit you've always embraced not by the goodness they want to offer.

The wages life will pay you is not a measure of your approach to the chores of life, but a view of certain relationships you have and the ones you lack to stay relevant for the pay day.

It is through love that you will find true love and it is through love that you will also get lured.

The greatest gift lift can give you is nothing but the company of people who needs what you can offer.

If only we can admit it as humans that we are like candles whose light will never see beneath itself despite its beauty in the dark. So we should know that no matter the carelessness we may adopt and carefulness we may lace, our errors will never be lucid to our ears nor will they be heard to our sights. As the warning of others around us will always be the torch to tread our darkest path and also our rod to part our flooded passages.

The habitat of goodness in life will always be in a far country or a near by cabin in which one's perception of it will always be the map to navigate the journey.

If the relationship you keep in your life makes you weary, it's a reflection that you take much responsibility of others more than what your capacity can take. However, always remember that you need to sail to the other side first before you can show others how safe the path is to the greener side, if you're not here, you can never make others there. You will always be ultimately responsible for yourself first, ensure to tread reasonably.

The true test of a Man's identity is in the mirror of challenges, only in this reflection can an individual have a moment of self reexamination of himself, anything outside this will only reveal his true attitude to life and humanity.

In the Marriage world, what you detect as a problem from your partner in a relationship but hoping it would change over time, is often times becomes what will eventually construct the path to divorce in marriage if not handled with proper measure.
