Poetry: Friendship (Love & Breakups)

We fit perfectly Like feet in shoes Until that time in the future The shoes are worn The feet will wane Stone on stone None feels the weight None reasons to wear We do not bother to fear We were made not to tear Since the stone rolled away Now I ache from the womb Like the volcano, The lava

Poetry: Black & Slave (Roots)

I am Tobi, and my colour is my name. They see slaves, but i see beauty, the type I’d claim. Shall pretence continue to pretend? Or will the happiness of slavery be our end? These waters will dry up from the body of this friend. Force is the tradition, they’d never borrow or lend. What makes the apple fall off

Poetry: Men & New Age (Relationship)

Is God a part of mankind? The spiritual wouldn’t always bind. Can’t faith come from troubles we have seen? Man is the dirt his god won’t dare to clean. Before this peril, there was goodness we could find. Tales had wooden plants and colors were green. Heaven didn’t threaten to leave you behind, And little was ever mentioned of sin.

Poetry: Culture and Children (Lost heritage)

What is this? What did we miss? What is old is dusty. They no longer remember, their memory is rusty. Culture, we make amiss Our children are culture unthirsty This is what we chose to dismiss, We didn’t know they’d become so unlucky.

Poetry: T-E-N-A-N-T-S!!

We all are tenants In this house not built with hands We don’t pay rents Until the day of judgement. We all are tenants In this room Or the other room Where landlords demand for your soul without a conscience Bose ======================== In our house there’s hardly a noise, our housing rent comes in poems. Paying the rent is not

Poetry: Government In The Mouth

The walls know too well to move up- Then they drop their guards and sit down. The teeth would gate-keep, and then sup, Until the morsels get to drown The walls know too well to move up The tongue,her roof, her bed, her crown, Meet roundtable around a cup For a holiday out of town. Leonell

Poetry: What Love Suffers

I know that love too can suffer From conditioned deceit and pain. But I know of he , the great bluffer Who it left mute and without brain. I know that love too can suffer; It had its fair share from our jane. It broke her but made her tougher And in return , it lost its name. Miidong ===============================

Poetry: The Truth About Myself

I am who I am That you may be you With weak strength in Arm I do what I do For the realms own good A man of the hood Boy is never rude Come with thoughts quite nude Quite the sarcastic Way too fantastic Flare like ballistic More futuristic I am good and bad The truth and a lie

Poetry: A Toast To Tempers

You call me your wife Made me the vehicle for procreation I cook all the meals I wash all the clothes All night long I listen to the tuneless music of your nostrils I heard you I heard you! Loud and clear This morning I said I heard you As you told her on the phone ‘be patient, Is it
