There Was A Time - Poem by Adedamola Quadri Adeniyi

THERE WAS A TIME

There was a time I fought the sun,
I looked unto it's face and spat on it
It was all because of you.

There was a time I seek for magic,
Magic that will trap your soul
Soul filled with love and all of it,
It was all because of you.

It was all because of you
I wrestled a Lion,
Just as Orunmila had instructed
It's the only way to win your heart.

It was all because of you
I visited Iya osun Modupe,
Alfa Abdul Waheed
And Pastor James
All to get the secret to your heart.

There was a time I cried
Cries that made up a sea,
Sea of your love
Love of yours which I seek.

There was a time I perished,
Just to proclaim you my love
Now I live again,
And I am still loving you.

    Adedamola, your ESL(?) errors hurt this poem. Maybe immerse yourself in some good contemporary poetry in English (Billy Collins, Mary Oliver) to guide and inspire you?

    if you have time, check out my new website:

    Tell me how you like it. Thanks! Yrs, JC
