Maami (My Mother) by Olukunle Adeyemo

Maami (My Mother)

A great star she is,
Dazzling all with her peace
Encompassed with love,
Kindness, and good gestures
Under her tutelage – Maami

Nothing brightens like her light,
Leading a leader aright
Even at the sight of challenges
Annually piling up in stages,
And in pages – Maami

Just as the ants build anthills,
And birds build nests,
She builds her rest
In her own trusted breeds
Not neglecting flaws and edges – Maami


*This poem “Maami (My Mother)” is dedicated to my mother in person of “Mrs Olayemi Esther Adeyemo” for her love and care for I and my siblings. Mum we love you so dearly… You are the best.
