It’s like losing a lover: Healing component by Rhoda Obi

May 13, 2017

A piece of my heart is gone Forever floating in hyperspace How many pieces can stray Before empty shell remains It’s like losing a lover Who does not want to be lost Searching in vain inside of you Hopelessly trying to give life To the memories The thing about memories They become weaker the more […]

Everybody is looking for something: Kofi Eghan

May 6, 2017

Everybody is looking for something and I am not an exception, But what I seek is not what everybody is looking for. Life is a race but we’ve all been given our own time and distance, Only to run but at our own pace. Desire, oh my desires! My love for you grows profoundly because […]

Dazzling Daisy: A Poem By Kofi Eghan

April 21, 2017

Dazzling daisy, One who is pretty and never naughty. Your smooth words and flattering speeches, Causes my heart to melt like a snow on a mountain on a sunny day. Dazzling daisy. If you travel so far beyond the reach of roads, And I find no ship to sail the seas. Then I will swim […]

Before You Talk About Love: Poetry by Kofi Eghan

April 21, 2017

Before you talk about love, whether good or bad. You have to know how it feels before you do talk about it. Love is strange, sometimes it comes like a rain. Not showing forth any sign of clouds, but then it falls. Love can take away your pain, and it can take away your sorrows. […]

OSSIFRAGE : A poem by Antony Akpevwe G

April 1, 2017

He is the scavenger who crushed your bones And picked your marrow clean Your common wealth he replaced with stones. He is your hope’s hunter With the powerful neck and fat belly From decades of drinking in oil-rich water. Your soft interior, hidden in bone is where his sharp sight locks You surrendered your dreams […]

The Cloth Of Death: Poetry By Kofi Eghan

March 10, 2017

Those who seek you are afraid to find you. The ones who are weary and are in pain sees you as the total end to their suffering but are afraid to embrace you. You are always the reason behind the tears of a widow for her husband and that of a sister for her lost […]

The Best Days Of My Life: By Niyi Ademoroti

February 19, 2017

Things turned out alright. Good, not great. I’m doing much better than my Physics teacher said I would, which is not surprising considering she was a bitter ugly woman who had bleached see-through ankles and blue veins. “Gbenga, you’ll study a useless couwse at a college of education and no one will hiya you because […]

February 19, 2017

To the lazy, you are either slow or fast but the hardworking man sees you just as the way you are. You do not favour the strong, neither do you stop to wait for the weak. You are just as you are, both to the fool and wise. You are the same service to both […]

My Black Society | By Kofi Eghan

January 18, 2017

MY BLACK-LAND In the days of old, you were sold. You made a pilgrimage but in bondage. In that age, you lost your heritage. But in a fight, you gained your rights. Now you are free but cannot claim your freedom. In the name of civilisation, you are being dictated. You have everything but can […]

Two Poems: By Eroayetan Justice

December 23, 2016

INNOCENT AFRICA: We were seated in ranch like sheep, Grazing our pots like bees on the hills From our fingers down to the elbow, Our mother’s stew runs, and still we eat it with ego Our farm was our play field, And under the night moon comes our News feed That old wooden pallet carries […]

Two Poems: By Kofi Eghan

December 19, 2016

HOPE: Alone I sit, but in the dark. Staring into the sky, but at the stars. Knowing I will be seen, but with time. A time ahead called future, where my success lies. The far I go, the more I know. But yet, my struggle seems to have no end. One-day in some-day, I will […]

Weeping Blood: By Anastatia

December 16, 2016

Weeping blood. The blood stood at night weeping It had left a body by day A body thrown around Like a diving soldier at war Who knew he was to die at battle But went in anyway A body which no one gave a name Who had no identity Like many others, whose blood weeps […]
