The Fairest Mark

We are not as the day
Whose length is well-defined
No breath seized midway
Its demise, its joy.

We are not as the day
For men’s art cannot just
Efface the footprints
We do not fare same.

Are we as the day
who takes light and dark
in equal candour?

To be nailed to bear
‘As lucky as the day’
Is the fairest mark.

About Ijagun Poetry Journal

Ijagun Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal that provides a platform from which we can tell our own stories in the authenticity of their multiplicity through the poetic medium. We don’t want to hear these stories from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art, too. Hence, we aim at publishing new and emerging poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to, break or reinvent conventions. Again, we accept reviews and critical essays on poetry. We also accept powerful art works and photographs that make us appreciate the "poetry" in everything.
