I'M Not Here While I'M Here

Poem By Anthony Seyi Abiodun

I'm not here while I'm here
I'm only here waiting to be there
The body here of mortality shrinks
The soul there in immortality prinks
The enticement in here will not suffice
To retract my path with evil device

So not here while I'm here
Makes me deny myself things so dear
For I believe something worthwhile
Waits for me on the street with gold tile
The years in here of happiness and bliss
Cannot compare in there a moment of peace

Do you know you can join me?
If you know don't want your gains here to be
Do you know we can walk hand in hand?
If you are ready to tread the sacred land
Do you know we can stand against the storm?
If for the joy of eternity you take a new form

'Imbroglio'

He walked through the part that enthralled with obscurity
On and on he went with dispassionate disparity
His mind fanatical with principles they debased
Much criticism flow about what he embraced

The Dawn Of A New Day

Sing, thou dark-haired angel
Songs ambient and suiting of a belle
Let the evening moon stand still and gaze
As she watches you intone in a glowing blaze

Jewish Africa

Just like the Israelites we wander
In the wilderness for years we gather
Picked from Benjamin to Reuben
To work in the vineyard of Buren

In Love With An Angel

At my door stood an angel of beautiful frame
With bright splendour to me she came
Gradually like a smith smelteth a metal
She poured the water of love that softened me to brittle

Why Shout Me Out

You come, I come, we meet
At the meeting place we both eat
Your ways, my ways, we see differently
Thought we consider each other referently

'Me And My Girl'

Side by side we meandered through the gate
No need to rush the world is under our gait
An old woman met us and asked why we ramble
We told her to pick roses without bramble
