Best Olusegun Arowolo Poems

+ Fav Poet


Craziness; when bombs are detonated,
and thousands of people are gone,
My strength in wane and my heart in pain,
Hurt deeply by the damages done.

Craziness; he went for shooting spray,
Orphans made and childless mothers,
My heart in pain and my strength in wane,
Sent to rehab home like the others.

Craziness is when the world capsized,
The weak being oppressed by the strong,
My strength in wane and my heart in pain,
Corruption and killings are so wrong.

Craziness;Babies are abandoned
for fear  of  poverty  and  care,
My heart in pain and my strength in wane,
This madness I can no longer bear.
