Up-Rising

UPRISING
Rise up black woman and you all of other colours
Rise up and grab your fallen baton
Passed down from the hand of heroines past
Rise up from the grave Amina Zazzau
Thelioness who hunted for lions to eat
Rise up lest her exploits be forgotten
Rise up to sheer bravery of Aba women
Whose nudity deadened men’s manhood
And broke the chains and shackles of injustice
Rise up to the gallantry of the Dahomey women
Whose fists waded off mighty warriors
And secured a kingdom and its men
Rise up in the spirit of Pupupu
She who was first to ascend a throne
And berthed the Ondo kingdom
Rise upin the spirit of Efunroye Tinubu
A lone voice that drowned the voices of million of men
Whose wealth fuelled the economy of Egba nation
Rise up in the power of Moremi
The woman who dared what men feared
To unravel the liberated her people
Rise up in the spirit of Funmilayo Kuti
The tigress who retreated before nobody
Rise up in the spirit of Sawaba
The nanny goat that played host in lion’s den
Rise up girls and women
From your kitchens, markets, stalls and offices
Rise that the dreams of heroines past
shall not be in vain

I Rise

Looking beyond
I see the future
Not knowing where my
Rising will fall on
Incase I never saw it….
Like sponge, I absorb every lesson
And drip on anyone as a lesson
It’s so uneasy for one to be steady,
Not knowing where to stop…

I rise to the future
I rise to chart my course of life
I rise to challenges
I rise to conquer
I rise to beauty, laughter and happiness
I rise to pomp and pageantry
I rise to sing songs of peace
I rise to excel
I rise to greatness as
I soar like an eagle….

I stoop to conquer and rise to stardom
I will never give up!
All I want is to rise up
Until I RISE!

I Planted A Rose Tree

I planted a rose tree in my garden,
In early days when the year was young;
I thought it would bear me roses, roses,
While nights were dewy and days were long.

It bore me once, and a white rose only--
A lovely rose with petals of light;
Like the moon in heaven, supreme and lonely;
And the lightning struck it one summer night.

Mauve, Black, And Rose

Mauve, black, and rose,
The veils of the jewel, and she, the jewel, a rose.

First, the pallor of mauve,
A soft flood flowing about the body I love.

Then, the flush of the rose,
A hedge of roses about the mystical rose.

Last, the black, and at last
The feet that I love, and the way that my love has passed.
