Birth of a great star

For Alhaji Kazeem Adio On a splendid day a star
Rose in the sky,
Brightening the day
With his mercy
And generosity.
Like the shore,
He absorbs
Every being.This stars glows
Every day
May Allah make this star
Continue to brighten
The land,
Lead us

FOR MY LOVE - By Abdulwaheed Olaniyi

I have dived in the mystic ages of your heart,
Dreamed  in the silent heart of the night,
Envisaged our union
Through the binocular rainbow of your eyes.
Ayo,
I looked through the eyes
of the sky,
gazing at your rainbow from afar,
I lingered to touch the sky,
but the cloud held my eyes to hug your heart.
If cloud seals my eyes to see your face,
My heart echoes the sonorous song of my lines to you
And my mind's eyes can view your beauty.
Let my love continue to breathe in the gentle shore of your heart.

A rainbow and a dog - By Kazeem Adio

One side of the sky looked misty and somewhat cloudy It made me feel like it was going to rainI looked up on the other side, I saw a rainbow surrounded by starsBeautiful and colorful, just like the queen of my townglittering from afar even though it seems nearThe closer I got to it, the more I wanted it to be savedCos the cloud on the other side is surely not any goodIt brings the cold rain and takes down everything with itBut it seems my rainbow’s mind is all made upThat with the dark cloud, it is ready to fallReady to bear whatever pain comes alongAnd ready to be another casualty of love.Like a dog that’s determined to get lostThe hunter’s warnings, it constantly ignoresThinking with its heart instead of its mindBelieving it sees better and armed enough for the taskNot knowing what glitters sometimes might not be goldAnd there are more numbers beyond the number ‘nine’.(C) Kazeem Adio 2019

VICTIM - Akande Iqmat

Can someone tell me what's all the fuss about?
Since you left the gap wide and didn't bother to bridge
With a piece of lolly the kids are lured in
Going dirty with them yet you know nothing
"Don't tell anyone and you'll get more sweets"
And gradually,they become victimsThe older ones seem exempted from sweets
Immature but fun to tease
Money and flower is what they use.
Unlucky are some cos they get beaten,
Molested and abused yet disbelieved
In silence,many suffer from DVDid i just hear "orphans they are"?
No, most live in parentdom but lacks parentcraft
No intimacy and no attention, just left to stray
Build so much trust in your child and bridge the gap
Safe them from victimizers and heal their wounds.   (C)Akande Iqmat

LOST IN THE BLOCK - Akande Iqmat

I CAN'T SEEM TO BUILD A Castle, LIKE I DO
I CAN'T SEEM TO MOULD A Brick, IT'S HARD TO DO
I CAN'T SEEM TO MIX MY THOUGHTS, IT'S GLUED
NEITHER CAN I SPEAK TO MY PEN, I'M MUTED
I CAN'T SEEM TO SING MY LYRICS, IT'S ODD
I CAN'T SEEM TO PLAY MY TUNES, I LOST THE KEYS
THE MORE I TRY TO PLAY THE CARDS
THE FASTER THE TABLE TURNS              
I HEARD IT'S CALLED WRITER'S BLOCK
A BLOCK NOT NEEDED IN MY COURT
MY WORDS SEEM TO BE GONE
BUT MY PEN REFUSE TO BE GUNNED
BYE, I SAY TO YOU WRITER'S BLOCK
LEAVE MY COURT, I NEED NOT A CHECK

THEIR GAME OUR PAIN - Akande Iqmat

The cloth of ignorance we wore
When our able-bodied men was onshore
In the stream of happiness we were
When given goods from there
Unknown to us is their game
Even when used to obtain their aim
Our forefathers bore the pains
But now we regret in pains
The battle has long been fought
But the impact is still being felt. (C)Akande Iqmat

LOVING YOU - Akande Iqmat

LOVING YOU AT FIRST SIGHT WAS NEVER A THOUGHT
EVEN LOVERS OF MINE NEVER BROUGHT A THOUGHT
AND TIMES OUT OF TIMES I'M LOST IN YOUR BREATH
MY BIG ROCKY HEART YOU TURNED INTO FLESH
RIGHTFULLY I CHOSE, THE LOVE I'LL FOREVER CLOTH
AND GRADUALLY YOU STOLE MY SEALED HEART.( C)AKANDE IQMAT 2019

I HAVE FOUND LOVE - Akande Iqmat

Falling in the ocean of love
Drowning in its deepest deep
You gave me a life to live
In which I took a sip
You mentioned to me of my parents
Reminded that l am an orphan
Insulted thatl am useless
Words that forever remain green
l thought l had found a lover
One that l can trust
But rather you were a luster
One that betrayed my trust
Now,l have found love that is real
Love I will forever feel. (C)Akande lqmat

LET'S CEASE TO BE TWO - Akande Iqmat

No cry would I ever shed
For that I'm under a shade
In shadows would my heart be found
And neither could my mind be read Come into my world of romance
And fall into my house of dreams
Deep down it feels so cool
Just looking at me you trip like a foolLust over you is not my game
Rather is your body my aim
Flirt game to me is tame
Neither is love a game
Less importance is a flirt game
But so germane is committing to a love aim You are an Angel in disguise
My soulmate to be precise
I observed you over the years
Till it dawn on me ,your plights Even if you are two ,i'll still choose you
He doesn't value you but I do
Be mine and we would cease to be two
Loving you is all I can do
(C) Akande Iqmat
