My second poem in 2021, I hope you find it interesting. You can find all my poems here.

Sometimes life is a mess,
Looking for something real then I found it,
I over take it when I can't take it anymore. 

Had a conversation with depression on the Other side,
My anxiety flows like tsunami,
I take it to fix all of the damage,
Never seen a hell so cold,
I can hear the devil calling,
I know the angels are watching.

I try to be a better person that I can,
But I always come out as being nothing,
My mistakes wipe all the right I have done,
Maybe someday I may stand for something good.

These pills is killing me softly,
Sometimes I don't know how to feel,
Stress is tearing me to pieces,
Feels like I am going to die every second of the day
So I have to get High.

I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the pills,
But if I keeping taking these pills, I won't be here,
The tiny voice in me wants to talk,
But I'm not really up for the conversations.

Too low in my life,
I can't help myself,
I can't feel myself,
There is nothing like feeling uncertainty.

Called for help but all I get is judgements,
Now, I have to walk through life alone,
Everyday my heart is racing,
I have to stay with these pills till it finishes.

My first poem in 2021, I hope you find it interesting. You can find all my poems here.

Somebody said you got a friend,
Now that you are not mine,
I have Been standing in the Mirror,
Trying to figure out were I went wrong.

I was looking for something more
When I fell in love with you,
I told you you're mine And you said I'm yours,
I was wrong to think I'm right.

Now I'm a sinking ship that is burning,
I struggle to sleep when I am alone,
I can't get you out of my mind,
I will give it all to get you back.

Nothing at all ever feels right,
Nothing is true, and no one is you,
You are stuck in my mind,
I can't live without you,
You're caught in my head.

When I was feeling down, 
You always picked me up,
I'm all messed up, 
I'm so out of line.

Hold me one more time, 
I'm falling apart,
Your heart is my home, 
And I'm never letting go.

If it's real,
And if it's true,
And if our love is wrong,
Then I don't want to be right,
I just want you to be mine.

This is my third poem in 2020, I hope you find it interesting.  You can find all my poems here.


Trying not fall on my way home,

But these thoughts are wearing me down,

It's driving me wild.


I need time to replace what I can't change,

I still want it all or nothing,

I want to sleep next to you,

That's all I want to do right now.


I want to come home to you,

I want to hold hands with you,

I want to sit next to you,

That's all I want to do right now.


Someone tell me it's not a dream,

I'm lost making sure you are okay,

Please don't go away,

I know how we feel,

It's not easy, tell me we'll be fine.


I'm in the corner, watching you kiss him,

So near, but still so far,

My heartbeats stopped that night 

if I'm honest,

I'll keep you safe inside my mind

As I try to say Goodbye.


I'm searching for what to do 

To make you mine again,

I known we aren't where 

We said we would be.


Caught in my memories,

Lost underneath,

I see my soul flying,

Show me all your pictures

Of how we fell in love,

Maybe we can go back to the start again.


When it's over 

And he doesn't treat you

Like I could, call me,

I can be the shoulder to cry on,

A heart to rely on.

Sometimes life and things never goes as we want or planned. The ones we love hurts us the most. You can find all my poems here.

She's a whistle on the wind,
A feather on the breeze,
A ripple on the stream,
She is sunlight on the sea,
She's a soft summer rain,
Falling gently through the trees
And I love her.

She is something to admire,
She shines like a mirror,
I call her Dido,
I got big plans for us,
But all I got now is memories.

I don't know how and I don't know why,
She is leaving but I can't change her mind,
She found a new Prince charming,
He makes her happier than I do,
I feel like talking but start to cry.

They say love is for the loving,
Without love maybe nothing is real,
Now I am Loveless or maybe I just loved less 
And appreciated her less,
I could've told her that I adored her.

I would love to feel love, 
But I can't stand the rejection,
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection,
I thought I was close,
But under further inspection,
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction. 

Love comes and goes,
But no one ever tells you
How to learn to let go,
Never Knew I could get my heart 
Broken in so many ways.

Everybody's looking for somebody to love,
But we're scared to let them in,
When I start feeling that it's gone too far,
I lie on my back and stare up at the stars,
I wonder if they're staring back at me.


I will see you someday before the end,
I don't know where and I don't know when,
But if things ever goes South,
I just want you to know,
 I will be here waiting to make it right.

This is my first poem in 2020 and it is all about THE FATHERLESS. I wrote it in remembrance of my late dad. To the fatherless out there, I want you to know that you are not alone, fight and hold on for better days are near. You can find all my poems here.

Two years gone,
The pain is still fresh,
Too many questions to ask,
Feels like I am knocking on Heavens door,
Dad, Who do I ask?

Lying in the middle of the bed,
Tearing out my heart
To find the reason why you left,
The only thing I found was:

Tears In my eyes,
Pain in my heart,
Thoughts in my head.
I slept with my denial,
Only the lonely stay together.

Trying to catch myself before I fall,
I am leaning on the edge,
Hallucinating the table are turning and
Life was everything you said.

I soaked in all the tears till I am gone,
Fighting through the moment you left,
I trip to be alive
And die to forget.

I am watching myself drifting away,
Who do I call at the edge of night?
Calling to the afterlife,
Can you hear me when I cry?
Call out to afterlife,
Can you show me how to fight?

Caught out in the rain storm,
Deep into the darkness I got lost,
Is this the dark before the light?

In my dreams I can't erase you,
Stolen promises beneath the temper,
I feel it in my bone it's over,
Heaven save me from myself.

Oh, I hear your voice,
But now you're gone,
I'm not letting go of holding on,
I know you're serenaded by angels,
Keep resting in peace, dad.

EVERYBODY pass through one thing or the other, hopefully you find this poem interesting. You can find all of my poems here.

Everybody hurts sometimes,
There's a time I remember,
When I did not know happiness.

Everybody hurts someday,
There's is a time I put on fake smile all day,
And cry all night for things I couldn't change.

Everybody feel lost sometimes,
There's a time I felt like taking my life,
A time all I felt was pains.

Everybody feels betrayed sometimes,
There's a time I gave up on friendship,
A time you needed them the most,
And they turned their back on you.

Everybody loses loved ones,
There's is a time all I can hear
is my sister's voice saying ''DAD IS DEAD'' 
The most painful three words I have ever heard,
I Never had the opportunity to say
Thank you or goodbye, I will always remember.

Everybody gets heartbroken
There's a time broken heart is the only thing
That is broke about me,
A time I gave up on love.

Everybody will always win,
There's a time all I want is breakthrough,
A time where winning is the only option,
But everything will be alright,
If I don't win today, I will tomorrow,
I will fight till my last breathe.

Some feelings sometimes are MORE THAN JUST WORDS. I hope you enjoy this poem.  You can have your say in the comment section. You can find all my poems here.

I have been trying to get your attention
From miles away,
I don't mean to be desperate,
I am sorry, but I can't let go this feelings.

I miss you so, but I am scared of getting 
Used to seeing People come and go,
I really want you to want me,
But I know it so hard for you to do that.

Nothing can break this feeling inside
That is burning through my veins,
I guess it's time I run far, far away;
To find comfort in my pain.

Has the distance blurred your feelings
Am I fading from your mind?
Is it hopeless or maybe you still want to
Meet me at our favourite spot?

It hurt the moment I saw you with someone else,
It hurt the moment you told me the love is gone,
It hurt the moment you held his hand,
It hurt the moment you kissed him,
It just hurt, every thoughts hurt.

I never meant to hurt you,
I never meant any word I said, 
I messed up and I know it
If I hurt you darling I'm sorry.

I have let go every word you said,
I have seen the look of anger in your face,
Close your eyes and they'll all be gone.

All I have is silent tears,
An empty smile,
A wishful look.

How I wish I could walk through
The doors of my mind,
How I wish I could play this memories
In cinema for you to see,
I'm so cold, it's more than just words.

The weather is getting colder,
If you need a hand to hold,
I will come running, because
You and I can't part till we die.

Abaddon, the Prince of destruction hovers over our nation. Magog, the prince of war marches towards our shores. Asmodeus, the prince of suffering and death beats his drums over our country.

Belial, Leviathan and Astoreth, the three Crown Princes of Hell, are knocking at our door.

The Bonded Woman and the Queen of Heaven have taken our throne and infested our waters whilst Molech, Hecate, Beelzebub, Azazel, Balaam, Behemoth, Bile, Cimeries, Coyote, Damballa, Dagon, Mormo and Mictian have plagued our fields and soiled our walls.

In the name of God I ask, who is manning our gates and where are the watchmen and the watchers? Where are God's servants and the defenders of the realm? Where are those who are called to pray into the dead of the night?

The sons of the Nephilim dance and rejoice as
poverty, hardship, cruelty, fear, famine, injustice, bloodshed, decay, deceit, wickedness and double standards stalk our land and covers it with a dark satanic veil, shutting out the glorious light of God's love, mercy and blessings.

O Nigerians what have you done to yourselves and who has bewitched you? Who has cast this evil spell that has blinded you to all reason and rationality?

What compels you to slash open your own stomachs with the sharpest of blades and to remove your own bowels?

Yet the gullible and dull, like madmen swimming in a pool of their own faeces, rejoice at the sheer callousnes and insensitivity of their broom-waving demi-god.

Little do they know that by the time he finishes with them and the clapping stops they will have nothing left.

He will strip them bare, drain their blood, devour their flesh, steal their glory, blight their star, bring them to their knees and turn them them into the living dead. They will be as chaff before the wind and, like vagabonds, paupers and beggars, they shall wander in the cold of the night.

That is the spirit of mai chanji for you. That is what it does and that is all that it brings: sadness, misery, loneliness, fear, poverty, death decay and cancerous destruction.

The Holy Bible says "my son meddle NOT with them that are given to CHANGE. For their calamity shall rise suddenly and who knoweth the ruin of them both?"- (Proverbs 24 21:22)

May God judge those who invoked this demon and who enthroned him as King. He is the veritable personification of evil and the diabolical manifestation of Lucifer, the Lord of the Flies.

Sometimes, we never stop loving someone even deep down in our heart we know they have hurt us, but we still find a place in our heart to forgive and accept them when they right their wrongs. I hope you enjoy this poem.  You can have your say in the comment section. You can find all my poems here.

I feel it the most at night
Tell me, how do I fight it?
It creeps in slowly,
The light has disappeared.

I have been alone for a while,
But only with you in my mind,
I am stuck here with the memories
We shared together.

I am so cold inside
Since you told me that you
Are missing someone else,
I have no reasons to doubt you.

It's being a rough summer,
I have been hurting,
Looking for someone
To make it right.

I guess someone else is what 
You need to make you feel alright,
I should know this could 
Never end well, 
But I never learn.

I need you for myself,
I wish you can see the pain I have seen
I am trying my best to be okay,
But it's so hard to be okay.

Heavy from the hurt inside my veins,
My friend said it's going to be okay,
But my friend don't know
What it's like in my mind.

I gave you the best of me
But you gave it away to
Someone worth much 
Less than me,
Now there's no us.

I remember all the times you 
told me you have my back,
Now we are going our separate paths.
I have been waiting for the day
You will say you want me back.

Yes, I still love you,
Yes, I still care about you,
Yes, I still think about you,
Yes, I just want the life we had,
Yes, I don't want to let you go.

There is always that one girl in every man's life that he loves unconditionally but can never be his because she doesn't feel the same for him. Hopefully you find this poem interesting. You can have your say in the comment section. You can find all my poems here.

I am always afraid that I am not enough for you,
But my mind always reminds me that
You are not even mine.

I held your hand but you let it go,
And I knew your heart had found a home
I can't hold me because I keep falling for you,
Every time you tell me you found someone new
I wish that someone was me.

You love me in a good way I don't like,
You always seem to have my heart,
All these memories of stolen places
Are packed up in my head
And it's messing with my mind.

Darling you look at me 
Like I am someone you only need
When it goes wrong
But you look at him 
Like he is your missing piece.

I have been looking in the mirror,
Trying to figure myself out,
These feelings creeps in slowly,
I have been wondering where I went wrong,
Too many questions i can't explain.

Know one could fall for you quite like me,
You perfectly wrong for me
But I know I can treat you better
When I think of you
My mind goes wild.

Every time our eyes meet,
This feeling inside me is almost
More than I can take,
I would give up forever to touch you
Because I know that you feel me somehow.

I want to hold the hand inside you,
I will be the one to make it better,
I will be there to protect you,
See you through,
I will be there and there is nothing 
I won't do to make you mine
