Let Us Be Love

Let us awake and be still
For a moment
Avoid the past of agonising times
Dwell in jubilations at heart
Without any obstacle that unsettles us

Not be paranoid or cynical
Let us mingle and improvise generosity
For any anguished soul
Disastrous uprising, if we separate ways
For where is the love
If there’s no relevance of love

Let us be love in our lives
Day in and day out
Time is too short to oblige misery
All humankind is a jewel
Whether he is poor or whether she is a victim
Stand together, holding arms
And let goodness prevail

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.
