Joshua Akinwande Poems
A WORLD WITHOUT WOMEN (www)
Have you ever imagined the world we live without women? It's like a lung without some oxygen, agonizing and inevitably dead, A face never with a smile, boring and unfriendly. A cup of tea without some grains of sugar, bitter and foul,
I have discovered the importance of communication manure, In the garden of life where the seeds of love and friendship are sown.
MORE THAN GOLD
Gold is precious, I am more precious Gold is valuable, I am more valuable
Three values seek I in my jewel, It must be true and pure with -in,
(Dedicated to Oluyemisi Janet Akinwande) God empowered you mother to be a channel Through which I found my way from heaven to earth
OH BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY MORNING
Oh beautiful Sunday morning, Glad to meet you oh beautiful Sunday morning,
'Day And Night
I live the day to dream the night As I dream the night to live the day I work the day to rest the night As I rest the night to work the day
ALWAYS A CHAMPION
I was born into a whole wide world With feeble limbs and simple mind At entrance, I could feel the heat Suggesting another world different from where I was
AWAY FROM HOME
(Journey to the East – Youth Service at Enugu State) Here I am very cold Lying by a lantern to warm up
CHAMPION OF OUR TIME
Leader among leaders Beaten, never die Stressed, not strained a bit Pulled apart, never deformed
Superman, am I actually a super man? Let’s see A man possessing exceptional or superhuman strength, abilities or powers I am not so sure but wait… I have once prayed for someone sick and was made normal, well
RISING WITH THE GLORY OF THE SUN
Rising with the glory of the sun But never to go down with it I will fly higher and higher Side by side with eagles among the clouds
Nobody decides the continent he comes from, No one influences the nation he belongs, No child ever choose his or her own family, All happened by fate, or rather a divine arrangement,
FRIEND IN YOU
(Dedicated to Tatyana Kasima) Life is a journey of countless sub-destinations It’s in stages and phases

A WORLD WITHOUT WOMEN (www)
Have you ever imagined the world we live without women?
It's like a lung without some oxygen, agonizing and inevitably dead,
A face never with a smile, boring and unfriendly.
A cup of tea without some grains of sugar, bitter and foul,
A well designed pool without some water, empty and dry,
A long ride on a bad untarred road, rough and uninteresting,
The earth without some drops of rain, an inescapable famine,
But how come with the great number of women on planet earth
We still live to cry as a reggae legend sang 'no woman no cry'?
It is because they ...
