MY JOURNEY TO THE POEM CITY

Written by: adelaja olayiwola

MY JOURNEY TO THE POEM CITY! 
………………… WHY I QUIT SINGING 
FOR POETRY!!

I HAVE LOVED THE PEN FOR LONG!!
EVEN THOSE DAYS; WHEN YOUNG!!
IT ALL STARTED BY MY TONGUE!!
THAT LOVES COMPOSING SONGS.

I HAVE IMPRESSED, BOTH OLD AND 
YOUNG!
WITH, ALL MY WRITTEN SONGS.
BUT, MY GROWTH IN MUSIC!
WAS STOPPED, BY SHY PHYSIQUE!

I KNEW; I WASN’T BOLD!
COS FACING CROWD; I WOULD 
RUN COLD!
BUT I SAID; MY THOUGHTS WONT 
BE SOLD!
SO, I WROTE ON, BUT KEPT THEM 
IN FOLDS.

ONE POETRY MANUAL CAME AS 
GIFT!
WHICH, GAVE ME AN UPLIFT!
I TRIED REMOLDING SONGS!!
BUT WASN’T EASY; FOR TIME 
LONG!!

‘’JUNGLE JUSTICE’’ WAS THE POEM,
THAT LED ME INTO THIS PATH!
WHILE ‘’ABIKU’’ WAS MY FIRST,
THAT I TRIED, FROM THIS IMPACT!

WRITING TO ME, IS NOW FUN!
COS ON ANY SUBJECT; I SHINE LIKE 
SUN!
WORD SELECTION; IS MY RUN!
COS FROM SONG; I WAS BORN!
