The Comments About Poems and Poets
POEM: The Ugly Politics Of Love
This poem is timely. "The Ugly Politics of Love" really mirrors the fate man finds himself in the dungeon of love. In the stone Age love was naturally a blissful moment with family, friends and loved ones without any selfish influence and interest attached. But today our society is mad and drunk with strings attached to love. Love among family, friends and lovers are politically attached to materialism and avarice for wealth.
The Poet Persona is gifted with words. His dexterity is glued to wits and wisdom. More grace great Poet.
POEM: The Lacuna
This poem is so touchy and emotional. Your choice of words triggers fear, hurts and neglects from the Lover who has abandoned his woman for a while. Maybe the Lover is burdened with life circumstances that has tied him down. The struggles of man goes with painful laugher.
Just wish the Poet Persona will understand that life isn't rosy for the man. I strongly believe that things will fall in pleasant places soon.
Kudos to the Poet Persona. This poem will stand the test of time. More grace to your Muse great Poet. Am happy the woman you are becoming.
POEM: Battle Of Love
This poem is touchy and emotionally embellished. I feel the hurts of the Poet Persona or whom she addresses it to. Just hope she finds another man who will love her for who she is. Indeed 'Love is fickle' and always coming and going.
POEM: A Woman’s Pain; She Just Wants To Be Free
Nice poem. The poem is so touching. I really felt the pain and lovesickness of the Poet Persona. Hopefully she will find a man who will love her. If you read my poems titled "Nightmares" and "Lovey-dovey", then you will understand the plights one goes through in love. More grace to your pen.
The poem "WITHDRAWN" is touchy and intriguing. The Poet persona decries the emotional torture she is going through in the hands of her lover. And each time she tries to make him understand, he pays deaf ears to her words. Pride and ego take hold of him. Do men actually have a destructive pride? Maybe he has his reasons for ignoring her excuses. Just hope the Poet persona will understand that love is full of sacrifices. How long will you be withdrawn in the prison of your emotions? Love conquers it all. More grace to you my Poet.
POEM: My Just And Corruption Free Nation
Nice piece. The poem explores the plights of the Kenyan people. It satires the political, social, cultural and religious problems that have bedeviled the society in Kenya.
The African regions share similar experiences. The problem of Africa in by and large is leadership problem. Our leaders are cantankerous and visionless. They are selfish and self centered. Nigeria as a country have similar issues too. Hope is our only consolation. We are praying and believing that God will deliver us someday.
