Explain my feelings
Express my worlds
Read my piece
See my ‘is’
It was born
Out of my worn
Sometimes I speak softly
Other times I come funny
Sometimes I am harsh
Other times I might cause a clash
But I am that voice
With words on pages
“Let there be changes”
That man of the pen
Bringing good tidings to all men
That writing chap
Whose pen won’t take a nap
Till peace abounds
On all grounds
BIOGRAPHY: Oku-ola Paul Abiola
Oku-ola Paul Abiola (pauldesimple) hails from Ijebu-ode Ogun state Nigeria. He was born and brought up in Somolu/ Bariga axis of Lagos where he attended S.S Peter and Paul Primary School Somolu and Baptist Academy, Obanikoro.
He moved ahead to The Federal Polytechnic Ilaro, Ogun state where he graduated as an Electrical Engineer.
A lover of rhymes and promoter of Naija Languaj (Nigerian Pigin), Oku-ola Paul Abiola’s works are uniquely simple and rich.
Though he is yet to publish a personal collection, he has contributed to different anthology, online and printed.
Oku-ola Paul Abiola is a personal friend and one of WRR’s most ardent followers. His writing style is one that I appreciate a lot, with messages that the world cannot have too much of.
Though, like most WRR members, he is a poet in the making, his poems are simple without being simplistic. I would read him any day, anytime.
I am a member of the WRR editorial team.
