REFLECTION – Timileyin Gabriel Olajuwon


When you look into a mirror,

How do you explain the spots in your shadow:

Do you see a ghost or a vast coast,

a silent grave or a burning altar,

a swaying dove or a playing cat,

a body, a soul or a spirit fighting your ageless self?



Mama said " a woman's heart is a reflection of self;

it is a talking drum of two faces,

what face you see is whom you've become;

when you see a silence like the calm ocean or

an emptiness like a withered leaf,

look beyond your eyes to see the shadow in your darkest hour

& be the silence in graveyards of living souls... "



This is how to begin a

journey into a woman's heart:

"Begin with a reflection of self

& end with an expression of silence"
