Don'T Hurt Me If You Love Me

Poem By Enitan Onikoyi

Dont hurt me if you love me.
Beating and kicking is not signs of love,
Pulling my hairs and head boxing me.
If you hurt the one you love,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont hurt me if you love me.
Calling me names is no love to me,
Locking me up like a prisoner in jail.
If you take my freedom away,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont bully me if you love me.
Telling me I'm no use to you,
While you spend the money I earned.
If you stripped me of all my pride,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Don't take my womanhood away
Passion is for us two to share,
Destroying my life with your wicked act.
If you make my life a hell on earth,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont shout at me like a little girl.
Screaming and kicking is no help to me
Making me feel like the guilty one.
If you destroy my self esteem,
What would you do to the one you hate?

Dont cheat on me lover boy.
Flirting around all day and night.
While I cook and wash your clothes,
If you treat me like a slave today,
How would you treat the one you hate?

Dont kill me if you love me.
Beating me black and blue,
Breaking my arms, nose and breaking my ribs.
If you split my head in two?
What would you do to the one you hate?

Up and down the Island of ours,
The boys have come to answer the call.
The Queen and country have summoned them,
To go to war for the nation's sake.

African Leaders

African Leaders, I am sick of you.
You ought to be my shepherd,
And protect all my sheeps.
But you've turned to be a wolf.

This Is Not The Time For A Rest

You look forward far beyond the horizon; you see how far you have to go; it is good now to double your pace if you can.
When you're climbing the mountain, it is high, rough and stoning, but you have to reach the mountain top.
You cannot give up now, the mountain top is closer than you think.
When it is time to take part in race, the important thing is not wining they say, but to take part in every game.

It Is Not The Right Time To Go.

Not tonight my Lord, not just yet.
To die a youth, a curse it is.
A wasted journey, a wasted birth.
Will I leave all that I am, and all that I have,

Global Warming

The earth is dark, the sun is gone.
Cloudy sky descend on earth
Like a plaque upon our world.
Nothing moves, the world is still,

Don'T Stand Aloof

We stand aloof and watch their crimes
Taking the lives of leaders to be
Just because they own the guns
And the knives to scare us all,
