31 DAYS OF POETRY- DAY 21- A POETS VALEDICTION- by Gbenga Oni

Suppose my clarion song sound
Before I was published
I beseech thee all
Pray not to be; but did sleep after all
Never let my rhymes go to waste
Even I as a graveyard waste
My spirit to thee all it pray
Remember my sweet songs where it lay
And bring my memories
To the day of the morrows.
Death brings no pleasure or pain
But to my wishes do in fain
For then, my vainglory would come in haste
And heads would turn to taste
From these sweet pages
From whence to all ages.

My maker calls me to his vaudeville
He blows the trumpet from heaven’s hill
The time cometh now for I
To be in the abode of he, the most high
I shall go with my flair
To make use of up there
He shall sit there on the moon thrown

And by my rendition shall he be drown




NAME: Gbenga Oni

DISCIPLINE: I studied English Education at Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba,

JOURNEY INTO POETRY: Poetry started for me when I first fell in love with a lady and it was also during that period I was preparing for my NECO examination. Wanting to do something for her I wrote my first poem I titled ‘PHILO’ which will appear first on my first collection of poems, which we are presently working on .

INSPIRATION/ WHAT I HOPE TO ACHIEVE: Generally, my muse comes from love and environment that provides the atmosphere for that beautiful element. (Love being beyond the chemistry felt by two sexes). Thus, my poetry tends to make people see beauty in places they least expect it and love where they never expect to find it.
OTHER INFO: Gbenga Oni also has passion for cameras. He is a professional videographer and photographer. He was the official Photographer for Full Proof movie, to be premiered in Ibadan on 22nd October 2016. He is currently serving fatherland in Abalama, River State.
