Just another cryptic soul

She drowned in her past
Because the hope of keeping up to the present
killed her
And the promises
which were about to
Be proven false
Would make people hate her
And her expectations
Which she considered a dream
Appeared to be a major threat
For her existence
Those changes falsified her world
She smoked a joint
Looked behind
Consumed herself in the hypocrisy of today
And passed away

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.
