IBIDUNNI ITUAH-IGHODALO By Opaaje Alexander Damilola

Written by Editor

In pain of anguish and sorrow

Like the naked sole on the broken glasses

When the blood stops not

In watering the tears of our eyes

Sun ray at the peak

Yet our clothes dry not in the tears of mourning

Tears comforting tears, running down the bridges of dried faces

This is a fairly tales of a sorrowful heart

As life lost to place of seen no more

The land of unknown but known to her

The land of our necessity refusal

At the pose of your  beauty

The intense cares of your  fourth smiling families

And your visage in beauty pageant

Oh death has taken one of us;

Oh death has taken Ibidunni

The reflection of greatness and strong faith

Death!  Regardless of her

stigma of infertility

You cares not to distinguish

Yet snatches at your want

Oh death, your insensitivity is alarming!

Taking Ibidunni from our presence

Not yet gone in our sense

As her epitomizing deeds remain indelible in our hearts!

 Footnote poem

As written for her

So also in a time would be written for me

And yours won’t be exception…

Live well and wisely!
