I woke up to see this beautiful vegetation
The overflow of water from the underground
The broad cover of the earth's radiation
Spreading from west to east of the world
The free gift of the entire vegetation

Tall and broad trees are impeachable
Beautiful  colourfulness of the flowers
Brightness of the sun ploughing the eyes
Oh! This is amazing beyond our imagination
When it has no expiration

The hills surrounds us conveniently
Free gift of the immeasurable land
Birds fly freely without congestion
We all got to the earth to see it
Because everything is a free gift.

All I extend is a handshake of caring
All I present is free loaves of doting
Only love string is attached, no doublecrossing
Try me dear, and u taste the love honey
Forget the issue of money
All I can offer for now is the future shinny
Shinning and glowing like glory
Dear! All these are not folklore story
Don't doubt me

I must be plain with my love
Because it is something tough
It glows when it is rough
And tolerate dirt but still looks shove

All I know is that love don't care
For anything that appear to be easy and near
Love is all about how to share
All it cares about is your heart purity
And your character in building the duty
Duty to build the bridge of love
Not minding the edge and curve

 Early life

Wole Soyinka was born Akinwande
Oluwole "Wole" Babatunde Soyinka on
July 13, 1934, in Abeokuta, near Ibadan
in western Nigeria. His father, Samuel
Ayodele Soyinka, was a prominent

child, he lived in an Anglican mission

The task of it pays,
Toiling and rolling on the bays,
Cascading around in the dark rays,
Voyaging down the night,
Even when no one sees your might.

Everyone comes around to brainstorm,
As long as the brain doesn't tumble,
The night workers will not crumble,
Taking the risk despite the obstacle,
Walking down without shackle.

The night takes its position,
When young lads have no opposition,
Than to go through the variation,
When they know the result is jubilation,
As we live on the earth of mystification.

Night do not judge my actions
As much as I have no discretion,
Than to walk in it with caution,
But I know our mind hold different actions.



Lets call a spade by its name,
So that it can know its aim,
Call a spade by its name,spade,
Before we all get captured under its salvage,
I don't know the problem with our age,
It is cumbersome than the dark age of the old sage,

Flaunting of boobs is a grand style,
That our girls do eye,
The artistic tattoo,
Catches the boys eyes,forgetting it as a taboo,
Playing smart on lappy is yahoo,
The intake of wobe! Wobe!
Is an o.t to talk to bae,
Ask a 5years ola girl,
Who is her angel?
She will tell you her role model,
Is a model.

Why am I born here?
Right in this world of no air,
Where people don't care,
All what they see is the monsters,
Popularly known as celebrities and stars,
They keep leading our youth astray,
And foolishly the youth see no ray,
Are they stars or monsters?
This is a question of the heart,
That we need to ask the so called stars on earth.

Your lips so soft and red,
The thought of kissing you is stuck in my head,
Your beauty is bright and warm,
Shinning through the darkest storm,
Your eyes sparkle like stars in the night sky,
When I stare into them I feel I am soaring high,
My love for you is pure and true,
I never stop thinking about you,
The sound of your voice singing love songs,
Make my heart pound,
I know I've truly found my one and only,
I promise to love you for every moment,
And when the everything else crumbles,
I am your armor to protect you from harm,
Like you are to me, a lucky charm,
For you're my heart,my soul,my world.
