Sulaiman Alimat Taiwo Poems
The Barren Sea
How long shall I wallow in fears? Alone in the heart of the barren sea For my eyes cry to see my home in the quiet nest From the saint of memories, my heart filled with empty hopes
Nature Like A Course
The heart weeps, the mind cries The sky rains, the sun shines The moon smiles, the air blows Lovers love, enemies hate
Solitude Is Hard, Give Me A Hand
Creeping down my cheeks like flooding water Hear me now! Don't say those words if you don't honor them
life as hard as a stone Happiness lost to lust Honesty wielded like shield Where in the world do i exist
Word and time enough. Smile would stream through my eyes again In admiration of myself With the distance clearly close
When Word Has No Limit
Once upon the past, when we never mattered Injured and hurting in stagnancy Our souls cried out loud to be nourished Our hearts sings and requires warmness
The Barren Thought
In the shadow of earth, half of my life passed Flying unpleasantly in dreams like a polluted air Tears rolling like a wound in the water An account of the passing of death
The Barren Sea
How long shall I wallow in fears?
Alone in the heart of the barren sea
For my eyes cry to see my home in the quiet nest
From the saint of memories, my heart filled with empty hopes
Going blind to ignore my own agony
Will I turn deaf before I hear my own cry?
My belly is an evidence of a fading strength
How long more in this cage of solitude?
