Tears From My Heart

Poem By Aanuoluwa Adebanjo

Sun rolls down in dusky smoothness
Along the line of day and night
Silhouettes of life begin to caress
the body of darkness in search of light

The day spreads its glorious wisdom
For the sentient and rogue as well
Where is the gospel in night’s kingdom?
That is the lesson for learned to impel

Lo, Adam and Eve’s purity of hearts
Who yet not found the knowledge fruit
They know not the pain (that) identity imparts
They know not the twinge at ego’s root

Was that the horizon where prayers rose
Came to the fore the innocent love
The heavens, the gods and Adams and Eves
Bound in oneness with nothing above

Then the sphere of knowers drew
Closer to power, nearer to clouts
Man lost, (his) paradise didn’t accrue
Faith withered to shed cardinal doubts
The world of struggle, feat and defeat
The clutter of logic, ideas deadbeat

From that debris of disorder prime
Sprang but hope in mystic reason
The night and darkness found a home
“Accept the unknown” the soul sings on
The novel, the funny, the joyful risk
An adventured life – graceful, brisk

A Price To Pay For Love

A long time ago
In a little city so faraway
I came across love
In the heart of a charming young man

The Fight Never Ends

This is a tale from my heart
A journey i lived through
Life was so busy
I could not set my mind on anything else

Before I Say, 'yes'

I have to look before i leap
I have to know the reason for the proposal
The reason why it was me and not another
I have to know the reason behind the smiles

I Fall To Stand

As my feet trembles
Upon the cold iceberg
In the wide ocean of life
And the tides flow with unstability

Theory Of Love

This journey of love seems so hard to reach its final destination
The twists and turns are major factors that must be gently understood
Even when light shines to brighten our paths
We need the light of love to keep us going


Someday I wouldn't have dashed hopes
Of another opportunity slipping by
Someday I wouldn't have any more sad songs to sing
But of the sweetest of songs
