Sokoto Town

Share

ShareThe clicks the wind makes, The sound of cars driving pass, The rumble of desires, colliding with lack, The look of hungry desperate, depression. The farmers did farm, they laugh last but for a while, Killings trading in the markets like gold, The calloused marketing of the soul, I notice the Almajiri and the woman…

Can we Play?
Poetry

Can we Play?

Share

ShareCome with me on this paths, let’s dine once again on the clouds Let’s pray along the sides, planting seeds as we go Love notes are gone, The lines won’t lay on this, sheets The music is silent, And no heart is dreaming, Love keys on the low, With cold rustic awakening, Can we play…

Dare to Dream
Poetry

Dare to Dream

Share

ShareOne more line today, Today might be the day, One more thought out emotion, Today might be the day, That my words take flight. Another walk closer, Reading a mind today, Analysing a book tomorrow Next tommorow, I will write again, May be it will just be the one. Dreams come true for me, Dreams…

Your Hands
Poetry

Your Hands

Share

ShareLost in my thoughts, As I reminisce, the splendour of your gaze, Wide, blue, cloudy sky, As the sun sets behind the hills, I watch dazed by mystery, There your elegance lay, Beneath the mysteries of your youthfulness, Never ageing, unyielding to earthy affluence, Just dissolved in Your embrace, Lost in the wonders of Your…

I Hear God.
Poetry

I Hear God.

Share

ShareI hear a voice, Not far, but near, The breath of God, Speaking to my spirit, Reaching out to me, fondly To greatness and splendor. I am His breath, Breathing into Nations, Liberating generations, bound by ignorance, Waking up, alas! sleeping eyes, Exposing Truth to darkness. I see the voice, Like a basking sunlight gushes…

Don’t Define Her by Her Worst Moments

Share

ShareWhat does your muse make you do? How come you now miss those moments? Great times you enjoy the most I guess? Don’t judge her by her worst moments. Now tell me what you think? Though your heart still skip on seeing her, Yet your mind deny you of the pleasure it brings. Don’t judge…

True to God I Love you
Poetry

True to God I Love you

Share

ShareThorns are more soothing, than your words Your silent motive, Cut deeper than the sharpest blead. Fire is more kind, than your silent intension, It hurts more than a heated iron, But I love you true to God. That ego that stands between, Separating every sanity, Builds up confusion, In a disappointed passion, That ego…

Is this Love
Poetry

Is this Love

Share

ShareIs this love? What you feel during or after a touch Is it love? That keeps u late night to steal all your dignity and slap your Mother? Is it love? When words march not action Is it love? That the only place it is expressed is upon the nipple and below a boys belt?…

Together we are More
Poetry

Together we are More

Share

ShareCome let’s reason together, Together let’s talk Talk heart to mind, Minding the distance, That wants to bring asunder. Let’s fight it out With long lasting sweetness, Soft words like a fervent prayer Let’s come together in a dance, Singing and rejoicing About our love About our home. Come let’seat and strategies About conquering, Dominating…

My Jewel in the Safari
Poetry

My Jewel in the Safari

Share

ShareAn inestimable jewel tucked away, Hidden from the prying eyes of scavengers. A fountain clear as the sun protected by the highest of the mountains, Your beauty is so tangible and I watched with my mouth agape. Why did you chose faraway land to be born? I searched for you for years, I am glad…
