Always Think

Poem By Michael Olakunle Adesanya

Before you think of
saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak
Before you complain about
the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat
Before you complain about your
husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out
to God for a companion

Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went
too early to heaven
Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires
children but they're barren
Before you argue about your dirty house;
someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are
living in the streets

Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the
same distance with their feet
And when you are tired and
complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and
those who wished they had your job
But before you think of pointing the
finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us are
without sin and we all answer to one maker
And when depressing thoughts
seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God
you're alive and still around.

Mother's Love

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all of our fears.


Rainbows would never be rainbows
If sunshine had never met rain
No one would ever need comfort
If there was no sadness and pain

My Life.

Fading away like the stars of the morning
Gaining my light in the glorious sun
I will pass from the earth and it's toiling
Only remembered by what i have done.

To Be One...

She is for real, she is ideal,
And in Nicole all calm is found,
Even when she is not around
If the sky was my paper


I'm nothing, you are something
I agree; leave me in my corner
You go to your corner.
I take the part of the day

Friends Without Faces

We sit and we type,
And we stare at our screens...
We all have to wonder
What this possibly means.
