Never Under-Estimate The Power Of Any Poet - Poem by James T. Abel Adesitimi

Air is not a stranger to all beings
while also sun and moon are not an alien to the act of changing our days
Sharks are the indigenes of the sea
So we are the native of imagination
In the city of inking our notes
Our words are the streams that flows in your desert thought
when sorrows engulf your heart.
Our words you read
-when loneliness sent you a friend request
We are the poetic preacher blessed with great sugar and bitter words
To comfort the broken hearted,
Then chastise the stubborn heads
We are the poetic prophet
We see beyond the blue
We have seen what has happened,
What is happening,
And what will come
The preter-human experience
We are the brain you study in high-schools
Because what we think you write.
The ladder to your success
Respect the poets
We deserve the honor
Never under-estimate the power of all poets
Adesitimi Taiwo...
