we 5 Poems Of Gabriel Eziorobo ~ Naija Poets
Below are few poems of Gabriel Eziorobo:-
#1 A CLUE
I really don't know
a secret in you,
because i was a baby
in his mother womb,
for nine months
without seeing the sun,
pondering day and night
thinking of what to do,
luckily for me
i fell asleep
in a secret town
surrounded with art
full of branches
with a secret in it
i find myself
a clue in it,
with the four-letters
everything is open.
#2 LIME-LIGHT
Every time i touches the light
i see you in the lime-light of my heart,
so deep in my heart
deeper than the ocean.
Every time i wanna say hi to you,
your eyes will be sleeping
in the night
so i felt,i was a pest to you
not to allow your eyes
to sleep well in the night
so i walk away
to the mountain
to fast and pray
for you to see the lime-light
in my heart,
so deep in my heart
deeper than the ocean.
#3 LIKE A RIVER
I was angry
in and out of me,
flowing like a river
in the river-side,
where it started
like a tumour
to my heart,
my heart was full of anger,
pumping in and out of me
like a river
in the river-side,
where i find her
the guilding angel
of my heart,
she is the one
or maybe she is
the healer
of my sickness,
i was wandering
like a river
in the river-side,
i find happiness with her.
#4 THE NIGHT
The night is dark
so the beauty
of the earth
is down.
The night is scary
and those who wake-up
are the survivals.
The night is the spirit-battle
so the night ask;
how was your-night?
How many people are alive?
How many people are dead?
#5 WONDER WONDER
My heart ceases
to function
so my brain
stops to think
so i wonder wonder,
where will i be?
The beauty,
of the earth
is fading
so the birds sing ah!ah!ah!
So i wonder wonder,
what does the song mean?
The drummers drum
so the dancers dance
to the rhythm of the drum
so i wonder wonder,
what is the rhythm of the drum?
