Tosin Adesokan Poems

The land and it's wishes 
They dwelled in riches 
They continued to dwell 
And was going well 

Roses are beautiful 
But you are more than rose 
You are wonderful 
Either you choose to sleep or pose 

Neither silver nor gold we have none 
But i believe we can change the world of err 
Our father's days had gone 
It's our time to change the evil air 


It flies, flies and flies 
It goes up, up and up 
It cries, cries and cries 
And never beg for food cup 

Years ago, brother made a first class
today, I saw him rolling multiple weeds
because his birth place is a smouldering hell
where people pray not to see another day

The last time I checked, she has gone
Her words then, weren't real
Her smiles then, were all fake
But I valued them because they built worlds

We are all human
aren't we?
we are all human
until riches segregated us

I am a student and not a bandit
Mixing Grammar with Marxism in order to be a liberator
Mixing lectures in order to be fit
Paid parents, tell me the tales of the children persecutor

my life is full of happiness without an iota of joy
my world is full of sorrow without sadness
My life is like a flood running around, strolling with erosion

For Sam


A food
is never a food
Until it is eaten....

Just in the morning,
I visited the unchasing
but ever running stream



I searched the world
In my house
but couldn't find a home

dry lips
dank skin
you don't need to be told
it is harmattan

Just like a seed, emerging after being buried
Their beauties are glowing now and will be thereafter
Each lass also come with their lads
To celebrate two ready to become one

Meeting you was a rare phenomenalistic favour
Everyone came in white but you chose to be black
Everyone smiled but you've frown yours like a hunted dog
Time is infinity but was exhausted trying to understand you


Well of life is too deep
Not all can dig it
Without losing
A life water

The Best Poem Of Tosin Adesokan

Act Of War

The land and it's wishes 
They dwelled in riches 
They continued to dwell 
And was going well 

They boasted to acquire more 
Without afraid of war 
They always curious about something 
Whereas there was nothing 

They continued on their way 
But there was a day 
A war broke out 
The land refused to work out 

The war continue from year to year 
With no hope of heir 
Dwindled in their wishes 
Shortened in their riches 

The life of land glutton 
It's always rotten 
They withdrew from the war 
They cease to have more 

They asked the muse 
In whom the were fused
The outcome of the war 
Muse said nothing more 

I volunteered to be a remedy 
But the land was not yet ready 
The land said I look dryer 
In my view, they look older.
