A poem on the domestic chaos at home and a nation at large.
The poem expresses the affection I had for Maiduguri, a place where I was brought up. But I miss it now due to the calamity that befalls the land.
Knolls fixed with cliffs
In between gaps
Grimy glaciers stash.
This delightful glance
Stimulates my blindsight.
I am a boy,
Whose strength lies
In the tales of tomorrow
Whose hunger is quenched in silence
A poem by Ebubechukwu Bruno to commorate 2021 World Poetry Day.
Immortal Words is a gentle reminder to humans that the power of words can always dare and defeat the power of death by sitting comfortably on the pages of a book.
I stood afar off and watched the blinding lights dim
Fading slowly until it’s all just a beam
This is worse than I could ever deem
I stood afar off in awe of regrets wishing I could go back in time to reset
TWO POEMS BY UMMILO
The beautiful adorable woman
I have ever known in my life
Since I started forming in her womb
Till the moment I first opened my eyes
A star you are,so bright than twilight moon
So charming is your smile
Religious poem talking about the results of sinning in this world.
