Two Faced

Poem By Emmanuel Joseph Olumakiss

The world have lured me to its deity
Ruling my destiny they gain nothing
A journey i should have freeze and think twice
So my return will welcome my people's smile
Alas i am on a failed struggle!
Tragedy of life in big bundle
Many awaiting my cooked story
Here I am on chase of a finished glory
The wind has used me for a big mockery
Showing my unclad so brightly
Too many cases I've not settled
The heavenly race like a lost battle
Too many trials I've not conquered
I've spent years serving two masters
Tragedy with his warning sound
Trinity the only one I've not found
It's like my problem is hard to define
Still the preacher says; I will be fine
In pretence I claim the son-god
In the mids of witches I have no gut
Too many wrong in my heart beat
Living for the world I've no rich
why don't we stay in heaven and serve God?
where we have no excuse to avoid wrong
Living on earth a high taste
Many of us are two faced.

On The Day Of My Demise

On the day of my demise
Do not merry in front of my dying hut
Proclaiming my lost name on a repeated time
Thinking with a mere beating

Mother Earth Owes Man A Tomb

The Earth our hollow host
There's nothing to bank and boast
The Earth our hovering home
We are the apparitions, her ghost

I Fall In Love On A Lonely Day

I fall in love on a lonely day
When my motion is high on a race
When my heart is dried of life & a taste
Not just when am a friend to the grave


What will I be remembered for?
Looking at life and the end of age
After sleep refuse wake
Will heaven and earth exchange a hand shake?


With the strength of my voice
I count on you with reference
Over the life of Africans
When denied a new breathe

Lovers Woe

In emptiness I once chose to be sold
In abandon of riches and glory
I disowned the house of gold
Reaching out the destitute for love
