Bapa

Poem By ADEESO ADEYEMI

When the seed fell deep in death,

The great bear fell and the canis major collapsed.

The tender shoot pushed hard through the rock.

The wave roar, the wind blew and the thunder struck..

Oh! what a tale to be told.

Lost is your voice, never to be heard among the living.

Now a whisper in the land of the shadow.


A tribute to my father ADEESO OYEDELE..May your gentlesoul rest in perfect peace BAPA

The Gods Are Crazy

Who can know what pleases the gods?
Or who can know the minds of the gods?
Sometimes they smile at you,
And another day, they mock you.

Am A Soldier

Am a soldier
I may be leaving
'cos soldier go, soldier come,
but you are not forgotten,

Mother

No idol like mother.
A mother is like precious gold,
priceless beyond compare.
She is like a precious gold.

Courage

In life, there are people that will hurt us and wrong us, but learn how to forgive and have a kindred heart.
In life, there are people that will disappoint us and leave us, but learn how to adjust and move on and let go.
In life there are obstacles on the way, but learn how to overcome for its meant to stir you up for greatness.
In life, there is failure that can make you fall and discourage, even if you fall learn how to stand and climb again.

A Short Life

If this is a goodbye, then the journey is short.
Am a sojourner, a stranger and wanderer.
The little life I had lived is of no regret.
Although, no monument has been dedicated to me.

Morning

The sound of morning awake me with joy.
It means a new day as begin.
The beauty of the rising sun is incomparable,
And the thirst of the dew is refreshing.
