    I could swear that I was over her

    Until her status update popped up in my phone
    And five minutes later I was still gazing numbly at the video of her and him..

    I could swear that I was over her

    Justice for Tina, Uwa
    Killings in Southern Kaduna
    Hashtag Black lives matter
    Before our sisters were considered moving target
    And consent was bulletproof enough to lower your gun
    Before trigger happy officers became judge, jury and executioner
    And the dread on your head is not wig enough to get you your day in court

    We give ourselves to these cause
    But this curse seems to cost more than we bargained for
    So we silently withdraw. Waiting for

    I will call your name
    Not in whispers and certainly not in doubt

    I won't stutter
    I won't chew my words
    I would make a mountain out of your molehill

    I won't apologise to have birth a still born
    Your placenta makes a fine ribbon
    I wear it like a crown on my head

    I won't sweep you under the carpet
    You're the elephant in this room
    And on you, I choose to point my spotlight

    I will call your name
    Not in whispers and certainly not in doubt
    BIAFRA...

    Our knees are cementaries
    We bury the memory of every slain brother
    We put no flower over their graves
    So when our knees kiss the clay
    We remind the earth,
    the only crime we ever committed
    was to be born looking like it.

    Reality and Maturity are Siamese twins
    Everytime you get one, the other tags along automatically...

    It would take more than a thousand years
    To teach my heart not to remember your name
    To stop playing recordings of our calls
    To feel strange when I dial your number
    To forget what your voice sounds like
    Never again would you say I love you
    To let go of someone I was just learning to hold

    It would take more than a thousand years
    To realise that an angel once walked this Earth
    And she chose to be my friend.

    D.Y.J I LOVE YOU FOREVER

    I love masks,
    I am obsessed with the idea of hiding behind something already figured out
    You see
    No middle ground, no grey area, just this and just that
    Like how could you possibly smile and cry at the same time
    Raising the bar to complex in an already complex world where rain and sun struggles for attention like wives in a polygamous home

    I love masks
    I am obsessed with the idea of feeding your mind with wrong info
    Like gbogbonishe, one dose of me will heal even undetected illnesses in your body
    Like I can make you happy and forget the world
    only give me the switch to turn you on permanently
    While I hide the idea that I am just one lazy guy

    I love masks
    I am obsessed with the idea of this is our enemy and this is our friend

    VOYAGER...

    Let me explore the undiscovered layers in your heart
    You can call me Dora

    Sojourn to a place you didn't know exist
    Where I am the protagonist featuring in your dreams
    You can call me Columbus

    I'd cross rivers to find you
    Draw a map to help me navigate back Everytime you push me away
    You can call me Mungo Park

    This compass of a heart has led me to you
    A thousand storms and even a shipwreck
    will not stop this pirate from invading your heart

    I'd sail on the wings of the wind
    Go against the tide
    TilI we become our very own anchors
    And our voyage finally come to an end.
