World Poetry Celebrates Timileyin Gabriel Olajuwon!


Ariadne’s News! On October 3, at 1:10 pm PST, the World Poetry Cafe, CFRO 100.5 FM was honoured to have a phone call from Nigeria with the wonderful Peace Advocate and leader Timileyin Gabriel Olajuwon! He called in to talk about the new book that he compiled about the legendary Kofi Annan Tributes (Anthology of poems and Essays in respect of the former United Nations Secretary-General and 2001 Nobel Peace Prize Co-recipient: Kofi Annan)! 

It was such an honour to hear from him again. Over the years, from a young age, it has been a joy to see him become a strong light for peace, bringing together the peoples of the world. 

I am so proud of the youth as they become adults, bringing the world together in healing and empowerment.  This has made a tremendous difference.

Apeke; what is life?

Life is the song in these broken lines

It is the verses on your sweet smiles


  O V



It is the striking chord

On the surface of your skin



   A U




It is the throne/tune in your heart…


Life is a coin

It is Love and Hate

Pain and Gain

Smile and Sorrow

Success and Failure;

It is the Cloud on broken faces

The Sun of romantic lovers,

It is life and Death!


Life is two hearts as one

Life is You and I

Life is our love

We are the life!
