Omotayo Fatunbi

Biography: I am just a lover of nature, art, a scavenger roaming the earth in search of good painting, sculpture, music, movie, poetry; and I try as much as possible to add mine for others like me to pick up. Life is too short to achieve all my big heart wishes to, but I just want to make my little contribution before death claims me.

Let Me

Roam the earth as I will

Like a nomadic shepherd

Always on guard

And sleep outdoor at will.


Let me

Sojourn far away

In the strangest of strange lands

Never to go astray

But to grab the milk and honey

With my bare hands.


I wish for a reprieve

Like a raging renegade

I need relief.


Let me

Embrace solitude

For I am a hermit

Not willing to walk with multitude

Not going back to my vomit.


We all hide our hideous face

Concealing our crooked case

Wasting away in our comfort zone

In the city that offers us nothing.


Let me go

For it behoves me to do so

Till out of this boy

A man is made.
