Lonely Soul, A Poem By Nigerian Poet, I B Adebayo
After a savage day
I walked miles
To the beach bar
When the sun returned home.
The spirit of the waters
danced for joy as she beat
against the shoulder of the shore.
The palm trees seemed to lean
on the night, standing like
sad mourners as though
they saw Pharaoh drown.
As darkness crept in, deepening
the shadows, silence
even the water murmured
as its whispering hand
slowly beat the beach.
Then I heard her voice
like the whisper of Hades
“I am here”
I froze, my ears straining
trying to locate her voice
But her voices had died
Silence came again
just the whisper of the waves
And I am as lonely again as the sun.
Eight years I seek her like Christ,
The years she thought as fun in the park.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
