You Have a Heart

Speak your mind oh ye man,

You have a heart

Be not shameless

Share your empty life full of violent flashes

You have called it ‘hope’,

But they are violent,

Violent hope.

Share your thoughts even if they are on the borderline

You have a heart

You hate the girl with dark knuckles, but you can’t say

You are scared of being labelled

Agbeke fills your heart, but you are trapped

Does it matter if Agbeke beats her mother?

Are all good things not flawed?

But you are trapped, you are still on the edge

Share your thoughts Akanji,

You have a heart

The village head steals money, but he is loved by the people

You don’t steal yet you are lonely

Your integrity has become a cross and not a bridge

Carry your integrity to the Market square Akanji

Tell the people the village head steals

But you are scared,

You do not want poverty added to your loneliness

Balogun fights with mere words

You have seen his barn, there are no guns, no swords

Every yam festival he feeds the village

Every yam festival he marries another wife

And this year,

He has snatched your wife

He has no guns, no swords,

 Akanji,

Do you have a heart?

About Me

My life’s journey is that of many parts, every day I try to bring all the parts to an agreement, but I am yet to succeed at that, or maybe I shouldn’t even be trying to do it, I really don’t know yet- but while at it, I try to find how each part makes me better, and how each part can make the society better
