POEM OF THE DAY
[i Saw His Round Mouth's Crimson]
[I saw his round mouth's crimson deepen as it fell],
Like a Sun, in his last deep hour;
Watched the magnificent recession of farewell,
Clouding, half gleam, half glower,
And a last splendour burn the heavens of his cheek.
And in his eyes
The cold stars lighting, very old and bleak,
In different skies.
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
The tenth day, and they give
my mirror back. Who knows
how to drink pain, and live?
I look, and the glass shows
the truth, fine as a hair,
of the scalpel's wounding care.
A round reproach to all
that's warped, uncertain, clouded,
the sun climbs. On the wall,

We live in a world
Where definition of beauty is shaped by society's standards
We live in a world
Where beauty is defined by words like:
TALL, SKINNY, FLAWLESS, PRETTY or YELLOW BONE
I'm surrounded by ads portraying the ideal standard of beauty,
I'm surrounded by ads telling me, what I NEED to be pretty.
The shiny long hair, straight white teeth, plastic surgery to fix my nose,
makeup to conceal my flaws,

Touch Of Heaven.
Oh skylight, you take my heart in
flight. Underneath the beautiful blue,
of the clouds that move. Surrounded
by, the beautiful neon green, of the
Angel Like- Haiku
An evening glow showed.
That stopped the world that passed by.
Touching the heart so.
When you haven't anyone, nobody can hurt you.
When you cry alone, nobody can hear you.
When you walk your path,
nobody will greet you.
As if some request in your heart Is suppressed,
As if through your eyes You want to say something,
As if while staying awake
A lifetime has passed,
The Dreamer's Wish
How can I dream, hurting so?
Loathing love, from a legacy of hate.
I am one, black and brown castrated down into the ground.
My dreams are unwilling to participate.
I looked at him and then I thought
Did he really get what he had sought,
Over there with others he sits bragging
And no one is ragging.
My Dying Mother
You really scared me with your humor
You really scared my little heart
I feel like running out of line and words
A New Nigeria Is Born
I have witness the birth of a new country
I have witness the birth of a new nation
