The Echoes of Uncertainty

The echoing rhythms of agonizing pulses strike the nerves of a dying soul,

Every breath moves slower waiting,

while the painful minor melody trickles into the life of

a frail young child.


The fingers of a gentle thud have laid upon an ivory pound,

Shocking the heart with a jolt to his chest,

as electric uncertainty decides the fate of a sudden



A familiar crowd parades in madness,

weeping religiously in the night,

Eagerly awaiting a verdict.

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.
