Poetry

A RARE GEM By Okalawon Khalid Olansile

Written by Editor

Do we need a palace before you’re crowned as a king?
NO AND NEVER, You worth more than this.

Do we need a Nation before you are declared as a president?
NO AND NEVER, for Your rulings favor all residents.

Do we need publicity before you are known?
NO AND NEVER, Life intelligence coach is not a title but a calling!
That keep care and love flaming.

Do you need children before you become a father?
NO AND NEVER,
Indeed, you are father of no children but brethren,
Some like mothers, Fathers and others like Children!

Bring in a sadist,
Take him round Pelumi’s garden,
And never should you lock the gate,
Because he will surely bring in his mates,
Those that have been lacking joys for decades.

A warrior saves his people from perish,
Should that be your calling?
No and Never You exceed this,
The great man that walk miles for neighbors,
And work whiles for their saviors.

Teach, Learn, share and Earn,
The life pattern you’ve penned,
Down in the heart of all men,
And every will It be kept till then,
The then of no more when.

Birthdays and other celebrated days,
Are chosen for some days,
But you have all days,
To be celebrated as great days,
As you inspire our days.

Your words Pierce so hard,
And this make human go Hard,
Till they see no more their grands.

By 90s, when you sit back with your two-front tooth,
Clothe in Agbada like suits,
And you heard your name round the hoods,
Put forth a moment smile,
For them all met your Fame and never your name!

By 300’s when you sleep tight in your grave,
And the world thinks along with your sayings,
Don’t just be amaze for your Fame,
But be happy the follow the right lane,
The lane of the name of the Fame.

Indeed, you’ve check pains to earn gains
And this would ever be Kept sane!

Oh Ye Ogunmokun,
The real father of the ekun, (Tiger)
You’ve been blessed with this priceless Ebun (Gift)
From him the ever living olohun, (GOD)
KEEP doing great Omo Ogunmokun.

Oh, You The mother of the MAN,
The world has impacted unto your son,
Some lessons by the peak of the sun,
And forever will there be returns,
From him to the world in turns.

Alas! The unborn Children of prince,
For you all will possess genes of his,
The genes that needs no grease,
To come true people’s dreams.

Hundreds of chapters cannot define you,
Thousands of oeuvres cannot Appreciate you.
But forever will we be grateful!

For there comes a lifetime loss for the nature,
By the time of your departure,
Off the world of creatures,
The world you’ve cultured!

To you the KING,
The brain behind business,
The soul for the respect,
The voice of the voiceless,
The choice of the hopeless,
The man behind movements,
The great against hatreds,
Keep dwelling in the world,
With those names you’ve created from words,
As you utter them in pieces,
To reform love and peace!!!

for Prince Pelumi Ogunmokun.
