Treasure Island

Babatunde Aremu


Ayanmo (Destiny)


Ayanmo, man's integral part
Created as man's twin being
Ayanmo is invisible but real
What man has been
What the created is
Whatever someone will be
Is in the palms of ayanmo
Ayanmo knows our tomorrow
Ayanmo unveils itself as wishes

Ayanmo is irreversible
Ayanmo is divinely ordained
Ayanmo is sancrosant
Whether things are alright
Or misfortune reigns
It is ayanmo
Ayanmo takes accolades
Ayanmo takes blames
Ayanmo, the myth above gods
Rather than offer sacrifices to gods
Ayanmo is to be worshipped
You have your ayanmo
I have my ayanmo
We are all mirrors of ayanmo
Our ayanmo is in Olodumare's hand
No humanbeing can alter it
Ayanmo is our destiny

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
