Unhappy Endings

Unwanted pregnancies bewildered by untamed penises

Conclusions render hope of conceiving babies

Blanketed, misfortuned skin toned in worthy appearance

And bewitching dreams blemished by disparaging reality


Scepticism of mind on elusive presence of love

Despairing hearts provoked upon waiting for true love

Wishing wells rich yet fruitless

And time vanishes leaving hearts unaided

Emmanuel Akor

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.
