Maami (My Mother)

 

 

Alamu;

take a tour to the land of past,

to have a confrence meeting with her cos of maami.

Ask why she flogged her into flaky flapping, caged her eye with tears, transformed her into a watching dog, caused her to fetch woods for her younger ones all in the name of investing on us?

 

Days of playing with death

on foam at a darkened hour

encompassed with droplets of rain

yet stood out in happy tears.

 

Wandering in the land of my darkened heart all i see her flashes of light held to lighten my glory from failing glitt my heart with joy.

 

I will talk to the fleeing sun at dawn

wine with the coming moon at fall

to sharpen the edge of their swords

to fight through the future.

 

Awele,

tell it to your skull

let it spill into your brain

never let a day pass away

without the impulse of a mother

and sacrifice made for you.

 

I will sit back here

beside this growing tree

till i see her walk in raiment of queens and named blessed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shattered Hopes

 

 

Climbing on tress of thorny flesh

with palms of broken heart

pushing with feet of captivating crushes hugging it chest to chest to bleed.

 

Pregnant with foods of tomorrow

cooked in the kitchen of sick fate

steaming evaporational flaming smoke

piercing eyeball to flowing rivers.

 

Broken Pitchers

Smitten Faces

Fuming Anger

Purging Aim.

 

Protruted sleeve at hems of our wares

kiss the pain in our eye

when hopes battle with future

shattered with daggers of negligence.
