Salute To My Pope

Poem By Michael Olakunle Adesanya

I never saw you, face to face though
You were every where around
The world, I never had the opportunity to
Shake hands with you one on one
But i fell you everyday around
The globe through poeple of every tribe,
Tongue, colour and religion.
You have taught us not
Only to love but that -Love is life.

An empitome of love
A man of great simplicity
A pope of the commoners
An embodiment of justice
A pace setter
The poeple's Pope
The man of the century
What a blessed generation I belong
As to live in your time.
A man of many talents
A pope of the poor
A pope of the orphan
A pope of the powerless
A pope of every religion
Oh! what a triumphant passage to eternal life.
May his soul rest in peace -Amen

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.
