I KNOW WHY YOUR MOTHER CRIES

Badiru Kehinde: front-IKWYMC.jpgI Know Why Your Mother Cries

 

I Know Why Your Mother Cries is Badiru’s first collection of poetry after years of writing for the social media space.

 

In his words, “This book contains poems I wrote from my heart,it’s my first published work. I sat reading some pages days ago with friends and they could almost cry, yet smiling”.

 

I Know Why Your Mother Cries (IKWYMC) is not just a collection of poetry but a manifestation of the tears mothers and women have cried and still cry. The collection is engaging, utilizes humour, collective imagery and creates a special eureka feeling which every one no matter class,age or gender can relate with. It addresses almost every motifs of life.

 

Every one born of a woman should find pleasure in this beauty. And the beauty lies in the tears your mother sheds… “But with your woman’s tears, the world becomes complete” (Stanza 15)

 

IKWYMC is a poetry about love, feminism, motherhood, failed promises, poverty, corruption, will, injustice, leadership, hope and the dream we collectively share. “The language is simple, almost prosaic in order to make the message clear to the masses that he represents…” Professor Hope Eghagha(From Foreward)

IN MY LAGOS

IN-MY-LAGOS.jpglagos-dp-cover-696x696.jpgIn my Lagos

Are the lessons you need for living,

If the crazy ‘ molue ‘ drivers

Do not thrill you,

The angry mob by the road side will.

If the skinny girls don’t take away

Your eye ball , the three men at Ojota will.

This is Lagos,

Here, your dreams are painted

On the canvas of yellow & black.

Here, traffic is like taking attendance

at the gate of heaven.

You must confirm your pocket

As you walk from bustop to bustop…

In my Lagos,

Madness is a choice,

Amebo is integrity,

Freedom is in chains,

Fashion is oxgyen ,

Love is a sham,

Business is business.

If you don’t mind your business,

You will be taught the lesson of EkoAkete!

This is my Lagos!

But there is more to it…

In my Lagos!

BY NIGHT

600x400.jpgBy night,

you should understand

that a happy

home starts in the morning.

 

Let’s know that

The vestige of  yester night

slept with the moon.

And by morning,

Wake up with revelings
