Poems by Ganiyu Mohi Adedare

We are Slave of Beauty

what beautify us?
Our grandfathers are not beautiful
Our Great-grandmothers are not pretty
We inherit our ugliness
We are Slave of Beauty
Inside us we are dark
In Our life!
We’ve planted a black seed of irony
For our offspring to inherit
We are Slave of Beauty
When our days are not good then
The panicking is amended
Our Arms are faded
We are not lazy
but we inherit ugliness
our labour are not rewarded
We are Slave of Beauty
Suffering is our shirt
and the the blanket we wry our body with
We are Slave of Beauty
we cant drive our thought to shiness
All our nights are strict in the street
We are Slave of Beauty.

These days are not good

Wicked and Evil
When dusk were disappeared
And beneath the western horizon

The time of Agony are vile
When sufferness is our war garment
When we wry our blanket with Echo of Agony

These days are not good
When we feel thirsty
And water is unlimited in the corridor of suffering
Our eyes are blinded
Our hands are influenced
Our heart are shocked

This days are not good
When our night were seized
Our days are short and dig the secret of our labour

Time of forlornness
When our arms are filled with punishment
And our striving are not rewarded

This days are vile
For the evening of thunder striking
When moon resting on sun shoulder till dawn

Time of ease unavailable
When sun gust every minute of day

These time are not good
For our body in hot
When our abode are sultry

When our ink dry in sorrow
And applaud the episode of zero
And melancholy best drum to dance
These days are not good
