Below are the all-time best Olajide Adelana poems as chosen by PoetrySoup members
Our world was fashioned flawlessly,
purpose perched purely.
its beauty sealed sweetly
Like the journey of a rose.
Dreamers dream swiftly,
Fishermen fish profusely,
But the living lies that breed men
has smothered them to a downward spiral.
Desire flickers for greatness.
Wanting and seeking for paramount prowess,
The hallowed place we once dwelt
is now suffused with surreptitious despair.
The earth encumbered their cravings,
Richness of raging unity coveted,
But their infuriating resentment
Has made the waft of death unrated
Beyond the gentle the gush of a storm,
The coolness of the raging fire,
Our world that once blossomed
has been splashed with splendid manslaughter.
What truth could be behind these lies?
What could be the ultimate sacrifice
to make this dreadful pandemonium suffice
the bloodshed of innocent honesty...?
Across the depth of risen fidelity
Lift the ominous evidence of pain
-Through the feint of our soulless warriors
The strength of a weak tiger
An endless faith that surge passion
Surely we shall be relived within reality
Below the bellows of our sunken hearts
we pulse for comfort in the clueless clouds
Your heart of stone
Valiant as the soul of an eagle
hacking the sage of the sky
I hear that
You lynch the brightest of stars
The majestic of competent empires
Through the thorns and blushing rage
We seek divine atonement to avert this loss
In the uproar of our obscene obsession
We shall dazzle you with a pudding
Or seduce you with our bulging breast
Or indulge you with our overflowing wine
Or rather face your sword until equilibrium is reached
so we can sail above the density of eternal life
so I ask, Could there be a more demonic strategy
to chastise the fright of this eternal figure?
Your enclosed lid
an immense propensity to whisk away
So I must plead. Death…
the grim reaper
let my people go
This journey begins with a step.
always remember these words I told you
they will be your guiding light in darkness
Do not slumber with your two eyes closed,
When you own a pot of gold
The eyes of traitors are watching.
The storm might be uncontrollable
But always listen to the desire of your heart,
Its sighs are the ultimatum of success.
Do not yield according to the desire of the body
It will take you to the highest mountain
And thereafter, a big fall.
Do not call your friends traitors
You never know if they are truly for you.
If the World turned against you
Don't be dismayed
hold on to steadfast love
Do not spit on those guiding hands that ratify you
they are those sent from above to lead you
Do not engage in a battle,
You never know what will become of you.
Do not listen to the words of fools,
They will sting you like scorpions.
Do not yield to their advice,
You will get drowned in their foolishness,
And stabbed by their expectations.
Do not accept their gift,
You will get entangled in their deceit.
Do not listen to rumors
They are created by your enemies.
If they ask for forgiveness,
Always look at your back.
I have seen things,
I have heard words,
They were mine, but now your possession.
Listen to these words
They will make you grow in wisdom.
Listen to the stars,
The sky is more than your limit.
Abide by these words,
They will make you a leading light.
Cherish these words of wisdom,
And you shall be the canopy of the cloud.
Meditate on these word,
And the moon shall be your stepping stone.
While my soul lingers
Through the tears of death fathomed
My depth shall transcend
Clara, my beloved guitar player
Beauty was the mystery of her
Wonderment of her eye husked with passion
Dread of a lifetime intonation cleft a glimpse of perfection
She clipped the string as I nod within that melody
Her pure slimy fingers trimmed the guitar's abnormality
She plough the strings while I was clouded with suspense
She broke her hip after shunning the guitar’s defiance
Hours later, I admit, this beauty was a coincidence
In deep awareness, I drowned into dreaming in the velvet sky,
Liberated from well defined fantasy to find truth in love.
A twist from one commotion to another hanging above,
Her wild smile declared reality through my hazel eyes.
I scowled to stop her for her tease,
But she faded from the scene with speed.
To avenge these cracked ribs in overwhelming reality,
Ruthlessly, I smother this fantasy.
Yearning for our new togetherness,
Will she consider me above her likeness?
She beclouds me with ravening emotion
Deeper within, I was inflamed with infatuation
It is love that rejects all known breakthrough;
I am seeking divine ways to make a happy view.
There is nothing divine
in the stir of silence amidst this soul
Pain was left to heal,
Scars suddenly trodden with relieve
A drop of water per minute,
rows rumbled with columns
for this bucket is far from half-full
A jagged aura of Venus
hovering with a wondrous grin
farewell, there is no cause to worry,
like the quote of good demons
A world without worry
a world in a lone glory
wonders of beauty
Danger grows and puddles
in the mind of solitude
Despicable and deadly volt
safe and secured for it will never get out
A word that was left unspoken
is now a sword cutting through the downtrodden
I speak of this love
That brush softly across you…
Like magnetic pulse

We were not meant to share a story
So I took a pen and write this poetry
We were not meant to play along
So I stood on your shade to sing a song
We were not meant to see through our shadow
So I sat behind the firmament to cry out my glow
We were not meant to touch our sky
So I look down on earth and hum a lullaby
We were never meant to have our honey-moon
So I came searching, and then fade at noon
We were never meant to have a free time
So I decided to make this poem rhyme
