In the Dead of the Night

In the dead of the night

In the dead of one rainy night
He crept into my room uninvited
Pinning me down to the bed very tight
He began to do what his body wanted.

This has become a regular ritual
That I’ve come to endure every night
The act has never been consensual
Utterly bruised, I’ve lost the will to fight

One night I wanted to run away and shout
But he threatened to kill me if I dare
Or have me immediately thrown out
Unless I yielded to him with my body bare.

He forced his hard-self deep inside of me
Just as he….

Introducing My Living Poems Blog

Christian poems

In case you have not yet noticed, I have started another blog called, Living Poems. It is a blog I am dedicating to exploring the poetic side of me.

In other words, the blog will center squarely on poetry or inspired lines as I would like to call them. It promises to be very inspiring…

The blog will document my poems in one place. Before now, my contributions to poetry on the blogosphere were posted in the poems sub category here on Victors’ Corner.

However, the poems train has now moved to my Living Poems blog. Some of my latest poems have been published there already and more are still loading…

So if you have been following me here on Victors’ Corner, kindly join me on Living Poems as well. New followers are welcomed too! Let us explore our poetic gifts together.

However, the Poetry corner of Victors’ Corner will continue to exist; the poems there will not be deleted. But the news ones will first be posted on Living Poems before they would be mirrored here (if need be).

Right now, the living poems blog is beginning to gaining some tractions already. Thanks to all the first visitors to the blog.

As I am writing this post, a notification for the first five likes has dropped in. Let’s just say I am heralding that little beginning here.

Living poems

The poems posted on the new blog will be a blessing to you. Some of them will make you laugh, others will make you want to cry and angry at the same time.

But they will leave you inspired in the end. They are nary ordinary poems because they are inspired lines from Above.

As  you read them, feel free to share them with your friends, like them or drop your comments. Apart from sharing the value with someone else, you would also make my day by doing so.

And if you have any good poetry blog to recommend to me, feel free to do so. It will be my pleasure to check them out.

Thank you for your time. You may now follow me to Living Poems blogs .

Birthday Reflections…

Birthday reflections
Victor flanked by colleagues at work on his birthday in 2017

Yes, it is my birthday again
I wish I’m without any stain

It comes once in every 365 days.
I wish I’ve improved in 1,000 ways.

Yes it has been a year of many gains.
But they didn’t come without any pains.

Another day to mark a personal new year.
But not that there hasn’t been a drop of tear.

Not every day of the year has been so wonderful.
But I have many reasons to be very thankful.

It’s been a year full of blessings.
And also one full of many lessons.

I pray that as my days on earth increase.
May my happiness in life never decrease.

There’s a reason I’m still alive, I suppose.
Yes, I’m here to fulfill a divine purpose.

I will always go the way my Lord chooses
Even when it is not all a bed full of roses.

Either now on in the many years ahead.
I will ever trust in the One who is my Head.

Please join me with one accord.
As I lift all the praises to God.

Not Everyone…

Not Everyone, a poem by Victor Uyanwanne

Not every one will love you the way you are.
But do not be depressed by thinking no one loves you at all.

Not every man will treat you nicely and kindly.
But make not the mistake of assuming all men are beasts.

Not every one will have unflinching faith in you.
But do yourself a favour, never fail to believe in you.

Not everyone will truly understand you.
But never you take for granted those who do.

Not everyone will know where the shoe pinches.
Because not everyone has been in your shoes.

Not everyone will show you how they made it in life.
But when you make it, be kind to show the way to others.

Not everyone will celebrate you and your dreams.
But when your dreams come through, you will be celebrated.

Not everyone will be there when you need them.
But not everyone who isn’t there is against you.

Not everyone around you will do the right things.
But always do things right whomever you are around.

Not everyone believe there is God.
But you know that’s a sure sign of foolishness.

Not everyone will do whatever you love.
But that doesn’t stop you from loving everyone.

Not everyone can please you all the time.
They’re just like you, you can’t please everyone every time.

Not everyone will smile at you every time.
But it may not mean they are not happy with you.

Not everyone will be grateful for your help.
But never fail to show gratitude to whomever helps you.

Not everyone will forgive all your offences.
But always forgive everyone who offends you.

You Love Your Wife and You Know it

A poem on Spousal love

You love your wife and you know it.
And she knows too that you love her.
Your love languages are truly in sync.
All is going well and good for you both.
No slacking, keep the flag flying.
That is how it is supposed to be.

You love your wife and you know it.
But your wife doesn’t think you love her.
In many ways you try to prove that you love her.
But she never really gets to understand you much.
You are speaking a love language different from hers.
It is time you began to learn her own love language.

You don’t love your wife and you know it.
But somehow she thinks that you do love her.
All because you have been acting like you love her.
Is it not time you stopped deceiving her?
And begin to make your love acts true to the heart?
Loving is a choice you have to make in her favour.

You don’t love your wife and you know it.
She too knows that you don’t love her.
But somehow, you are both managing each other…
You are the one failing in your responsibility here,
Because you were the one told, “Husband love your wife.”
Now is the time to make the choice to love her.

All Hail the King Who Died to Redeem Us

A poem on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ

His death brought salvation to mankind.
A Saviour like Him no one can ever find.
Without Him we would be forever lost.
With Him we overcame the devil’s worst.

They had Him despised and rejected.
But He refused to be utterly dejected.
They numbered Him amongst criminals.
And sent him to death terminals.

He took on the journey with sheer courage
The soldiers paid him a mocking homage.
He carried the cross and paid the price.
Giving His life for the ultimate sacrifice.

They put Him in a very cold grave
With armed soldiers strong and brave
To stay there and take watch over…
The devil thought it was all over.

But on the very third day
An angel rolled the stone away
And in that same glorious hour
He arose from death with power

He overcame the power of hell
Now rings the victory bell.
All hail King Jesus
Who died to redeem us.

I Can’t Convince You There is God

God exists

I believe there is a God who loves me.
I know Him as my heavenly Father.
I came to know Him by faith,
Faith in His Son Jesus Christ alone.

I say to you there is God in heaven
But you wouldn’t believe me one bit
All you ever do is scoff at the holy idea
That there is a God who made all things.

You see the Sun, the Moon and the Stars;
The Oceans and seas, trees and the wild…
All are enough proofs there must be a God
But you chose to believe what you want.

no one can convince you there is God

You say it is foolishness to believe God exists.
But truly, the fool is the one who believes not.
Trusting in your worldly wisdom
You are ending up being a big fool.

You said to convince you there is God
But no matter how much I try to do so
You wouldn’t see the sense in my point of view
Because your mind is closed to spiritual truth.

How long wouldn’t you believe there’s God?
How long can you live without believing God exists?
Don’t you know even your breadth is from God?
Remember one day you would be gone from here.

I can’t convince you there is God
You’ll have to discover Him by yourself.
And your lifetime is the only chance you’ve got
It’ll be too late once you’ve crossed the Rubicon.

Looking Beyond The Face Value

As shining as somethings are.
They are definitely not all a star

Not everything that glitters is gold.
That you may have already been told.

Surely, nothing is as it ever appears
So do not be deceived by the tears.

Life isn’t like a computer; don’t forget
What you see isn’t always what you get.

Real value is found beneath the dirt
So you have to dig deeper in the earth.

If you have to see the picture that’s true
Try looking beyond the face value.

Not all that glitters is gold

Faded Dreams

To have and to hold unto you
Till our dreams come through.

To cling to you, inseparably tight
Whether it be morn, noon or night.

To be truly there for each other
Waxing strong together, forever.

Those were the ample dreams
That flooded my heart like streams.

But like life’s disappearing steams
They were all but faded dreams.

No More Stalling The Calling

Now have I reached the fervid juncture
Where I have seen the bigger picture.
So I am going to have to say goodbye
To things that wouldn’t let me go by.

Before you begin to ask me how
At His throne my knees I bow.
And I know you want to ask me why
But no questions; he is the Most-high.

From Him have I received a greater calling
There isn’t going to be any more stalling.
The time to start the eternal race is now
It is not in your place to fathom ‘how.’

Hear it: It is not in me that wills
But it is all about Him that calls.
This is the time to answer, “Yes Lord”
No more rooms to doubt His sure Word.

Yea, there have been many wasted years
But now, I’m rising above all my fears.
Because His power is at work in me
As His sure promise says it should be.

It is not going to be an easy race
Many troubles I know I will face.
But on my side is the Omniscient
His grace for me is ever sufficient.

Come along with me if you want
Being together with you won’t hurt.
We all belong to the same Father
So we can do it better together.

Get Off My Back

Who are you to call me names?
You think we are playing games?
Gush, it doesn’t look so to me
My judge, you’re not called to be.

Call me weak, you are wrong!
God says, I am strong.
What God says I am, I am
And it can never be a harm.

You may think otherwise;
I know you are full of lies.
Just like your father, the devil
All you think is to do evil.

You know where you belong
Otherwise, you are wrong.
It’s time you began to pack
And at once get off my back.

Life Is Tough

Life is Tough
Picture credits: Pinterest

Life is tough, no doubt
You can see it roundabout.
Despite the obvious pains
There are possibilities of gains.

Some experiences you may wish to forget
And there are some you had to regret
But there are also great days to remember
Some good memories to cherish forever.

Everyone knows life is tough
And the journey through it, rough.
But it is full of lessons to learn.
And many opportunities to earn.

Life is tough, not only here
But over there and everywhere.
You don’t have to complain.
Life is not a simple plane.

Share A Smile With Me

Birthday party
Victor Uyanwanne

It is my birthday.
I thought you should know.
I have come a long way.
But much more to go.

I was born for a purpose
There is no doubt about it.
No matter what life & time propose.
I will never ever quit.

It is my special day
Share a smile with me.
I know you can find a way.
To be as nice as you want to be.

No Dead End With Jesus

No dead end with Jesus
No dead end with Jesus

If Jesus is your Friend
There is no dead end

If things don’t look okay
Trust Him, He’ll make a way.

He did it before, yesterday
He’ll do it yet again, today.

If only you’ll call on His name
You will not be put to shame

You’ll not have to plead and plead
Before He will meet your need

With Jesus as your friend
For you there is no dead end.

It Is Finished!

Statements of Jesus on the cross
Redemption: Jesus finished the work on the cross.

“It is finished.”
It is more than just a sentence…
It is the final verdict from the lips of Jesus,
Meaning, the work is completely done…
Just as it was planned from the beginning.

The price of justice is fully paid for.
The sacrifice is complete and adequate.
I am forever  ransomed, redeemed
My sins are totally forgiven…
A new beginning is now mine.

The veil is rented in two…
The great chasm bridged, blockade removed.
Access to  God the Father is granted
By the sacrifice of God the Son.
My relationship with the Godhead fully restored.

The battle is over… won and lost
My Jesus is the victorious One.
The seed of the serpent bruised His heel
But the Seed of the woman crushed the head of the serpent.
Satan is defeated, shamed, disgraced forever…

Nothing has been left undone…
My past, my present and my future
All fully taken care of by His blood.
The work of redemption is complete.
Nothing can undo what He has finished.

Temptations Of Life

Temptation
I saw you with my clear eyes.
I thought I could steal an innocent look,
But in the end my eyes got hooked.

Temptation
I touched you a little with my fingers,
Thinking I could just fiddle and run.
Now addiction to you has just begun.

Temptation
I could have chosen to flee from you
But I walked through your alluring doors.
See me now so unhappy on your floors!

Temptation.
You crept into my heart and stayed.
Why didn’t I shove you aside once,
And stay untainted as I used to be?

Temptation
I gave you but a little foothold.
Why have you become such a big stronghold,
That seems to hold me down, captive?

Oh God of my salvation
Deliver me from the temptations of life,
That have kept me down and bound.
So I can boldly say, victory is mine at last!

The Very First Post On This Blog

a-poem-we-know-by-victor-uyanwanne
We Know

The post you are about to read was the very first content published on this blog. As I said in the post before this one, this blog just turned two years old.

To further commemorate the milestone, I am reposting the pioneer post here for you to read. It was initially published when there were no followers on this Blog. That tells me that you may not have seen it yet.

Now that I have you, kindly indulge me as I present to you, “We Know,” the very first and oldest post on this blog. I guarantee you will find something useful in it.

We Know

We know we have potentials,
But we are not doing enough to develop them.
What is the use of a vibrant energy,
That remains buried and untapped?

We know the future is bright,
But we keep living in the past!
How can we ever enter and enjoy the future,
If we don’t ever leave the past behind?

We know our lives could be better,
But we hesitate to do things to improve on them.
Why are we waiting and delaying?
The room of improvement is never filled up!

We know we are not so perfect,
But we fail to work on our weaknesses!
Can a dirty china become clean,
If it has not been washed at all?

We know we don’t like to be criticised,
But we never cease from doing it to others.
What makes us think we would be likeable?
When our words ache like pain?

We know we like being appreciated,
But we think other’s don’t deserve the same.
If we want appreciation to come around,
We ought to start giving it first to others.

We know we ought to make more progress in life,
But we fear to take the first steps forward.
How can we get to where we want to be,
If we don’t put one foot in front of the other?

We know we crave for love and forgiveness,
But we ourselves are never generous with such.
How can we be so very surprised?
That we don’t get loved and forgiven by others as we want?

We know we crave respect and admiration from others,
But we are less concerned about our self-respect.
Why then are we so bothered that we don’t get so respected,
As much as we think we deserve?

Best friends forever
Best friends forever

We know how good it feels to be welcomed,
But we don’t always spread our hands to welcome others.
Yet we wonder why people don’t always warm up to us,
Like the insect to the nectar in a flower.

We know we are not without blemish,
But we are always quick to cast the stone on others
Why don’t we treat other people
As we want to be treated?

We know Rome was not built in day,
But we cry and worry over every little slip.
With our heart filled with so many worries,
How can we enjoy a deep sleep at night?

We know we shouldn’t go to bed when the roof is on fire,
But we pretend it’s just a little flick of flame.
Why then do we wonder and cry aloud,
When all we have is turned to ashes?

We know every seed produces after its own kind,
But some of us are those who sow corn and expect a harvest of potatoes.
Who would be ever so disappointed,
As much as someone like that would be?

We know we should say ‘I am sorry’ sometimes,
But our pride keeps us from saying it.
Doesn’t it matter to us that our friends and family are hurt,
When we fail to say “I am sorry, please forgive me?”

We know it’s good for us to give.
But we hoard the things we ought to share.
Have we forgotten the Master’s rule:
“Give and it shall be given to you?”

We know we should give thanks in all things,
But we say all things are not okay to give thanks, so we complain.
Are we now wiser than the Master,
Who said, “give thanks in all things?”

No One Can Love You Like I Do 

No one else can love you like God.
Celebrating Valentine with love from above

Remember I made you in My own image
And then put you on the world stage.
But you turned your back at Me
Away from who you were meant to be

No matter how dark your ways are
I can make you shine like a star
I am the way, the truth and the light.
I can make your way shine so bright.

I have always shown you My love
Brought to the earth from Above
My love for you knows no bounds
Because you’re the one I’ve found

Remember I went all the way for you
So that you can fully come through
To where you are clothed with holiness
And filled with My own righteousness.

No one can love you like I do
It doesn’t really matter who!
All I want from you from the start
Is for you to give Me all your heart.

Living Life In God’s Name 1

Living life in God's name

This life is more than a game
I will have to live it in God’s name
I will live for only His purpose
And for all He will ever propose.

I will give it all my time
And put in all my dime
I will never like to give up
No matter how big the hiccup.

I know it will not be so easy
Neither can the road be rosy
But I’m ready to meet the marvel
No matter how far I’ll have to travel.

One thing I will have to tell you:
You will see me come through
Has it ever been done before?
I am ready to do much more.

That it can be well achieved
That I have long perceived
The eyes of flesh may not see it
But by faith I can see every bit

It would not have to be so long
Before we would tell who is wrong
I have not said I’m always right
But I can’t give up the good fight.

It is one thing to get a thing started
And yet another to get it completed
I know that He who has set me on
Is still there to keep me moving on.

What Jesus Wants On His Birthday

Just

I know some of you know Me already.
But many of you are yet to know Me personally.
You must have heard about Me before.
As my Name is regularly called amongst the nations.

I can see you feel happy this special season.
And I really like that… but you deserve much more.
I can feel the special and colourful atmosphere.
Pervading across many lands around the world.

The special emphasis on love and giving this season.
The special music playing in homes and malls for the same reason.
The beautiful decorations all around are all noticed.
All is well and good and appreciable.

You say it’s about a Baby that was born by a virgin.
You are right; it happened several centuries ago.
But do you know I Am that Baby?
Much more than that… I am the Lord and Saviour.

You commemorate My birthday yearly at Christmas.
Celebrating it by all means and ways possible.
Eating the best of meals and drinking the best of wines.
Exchanging gifts amongst yourselves.

You and everyone seem to be happy.
As you spend your time and money.
Visiting people and visiting places.
And throwing parties here and there.

You do all that because of Me?… fine!
But do you know what I really I want from you?
I mean, am I not the One you are celebrating?
At Least I should get a special gift from you!

But do you know the gift I ask of you?
I don’t really want your money.
I don’t want your sacrifices either.
I don’t want whatever you have to give.

You care to know what I really want from you?
I will tell you once again and again:
I want you to know Me personally.
That’s what I really want from you.

You can begin by giving Me your life.
I have given Mine to you already.
That was why I was born, you know!
That was why I lived and died!


It’s time you rewrote your life’s story.
It breaks my heart that year in year out.
You celebrate My birthday religiously.
Without knowing Me the true Celebrant.

Yes, I am the One you celebrate His birth at Christmas.
I am the “Reason for the Season.”
In case you haven’t noticed it before.
My name (Christ) is the main part of Christmas.

Yes, I am Christ the anointed One.
I am Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of God.
I was born, I lived, and I died for you.
All I want is for You to know Me personally.

I knew you before you were born.
I invite you to come and know Me now.
So we can be together forever in glory.
Through this life and the one to come.

Lord Deliver Me From My Self

Doing the will of God

Lord, no matter how I feel
Help me to always do Your will.
The only way I can show You love
Is to obey your laws from above.

I often want to go my way
But in the process I go astray.
So Lord deliver me from myself
I am better off with Your good Self.

In every of my life’s unfolding story
Let my eyes see Your true glory.
And no matter what I go through
Help me to stay faithful to You.

Even when the storms of life rage on
Give me the needed power to move on.
I trust You are up to something
‘Cos without You I can do nothing.

It’s written that as you’re with Jesus
So You promised to always be with us.
Let the wind blow hard and rough
Your strength has made me tough.

I believe all things’ll work out good
Because by me You firmly stood.
In You, I could never be a loser
You’ve made me more than a winner.

You Are Not A Friend, If …

You are not a friend

If you take pleasure in celebrating my errors more than my excellence, you are not a friend.

If you delight in talking down on me and you never get to talk about my good qualities, you are not a friend.

If you see me on the road to hell and you secretly wish that I go through it to the end, you are not a friend.

If you rejoice when I am sad and you are unhappy when I succeed, you are not a friend.

If you paint me well in my face and you stab me at my back, you are not a friend.

If my joy makes you sad and my cry makes you smile, you are not a friend.

If you believe when they tell you I am bad and you doubt when they say I am good, you are not a friend.

If you love me when I see you and you hate me when I don’t see you, you are not a friend.

If you stay close when the weather is fair, but you run away when I’m in a storm, you are not a friend.

If you say ‘cheers’ in my face and you say ‘jeers’ at my back, you are not a friend.

If you call me when you need me and you don’t answer when I call you, you are not a friend.

If you wish that I fall so that I cannot rise above you, you are not a friend.

If you hate to love me or love to hate me you are not a friend.

If you always tell me sweet lies instead of the bitter truth, you are not a friend.

If you see nothing good in me and neither think greatness of me, you are not a friend.

If you see me take poison and you urge me on with pleasure, you are not a friend.

If you vilify me in order to make you appear a hero, you are not a friend.

If you lie against me to make you look good, you are not a friend.

If you share in all my secrets, but you never share any of yours with me, you are not a friend.

If you think ill of me and never wishes me well, you are not a friend.

Someone is not your friend, if ……?

You Are Not Too Old To Be Happy

Nobody is too old to be happy, Victor Uyanwanne

No matter who or how old you are
Know that you are surely a shining star.
No matter what you have been told.
Be happy, you are not yet too old.

Do not let your perceived old age
Make you feel like a bird in a cage.
That you have been around for a while
Is enough reason to make you smile.

You have seen many life’s seasons
That have given you multiple reasons
Which we see have made you wise
In yours, and in our youthful eyes.

Try and forget the pain of yester years
And your many treacherous days of tears.
Rejoice in the moments you have and now.
Please find out if you don’t know how.

To you Facebook may look like magic.
Without it doesn’t mean your life is tragic.
Even if all you ever knew was a real ‘picture book’.
Smile as your grandsons splash your pictures on Facebook.

You may not have known how to tweet
But hasn’t your life been very sweet?
Even if yours hasn’t been a life of ease
Be you not bitter to your grave, please.

Before you ultimately return to your Maker.
Or become an item for the undertaker
Endeavour to heal all known sores.
And seek not to settle old scores.

It is true you have come of age.
But don’t quit being happy at this stage.
Even though your journey has been bumpy
You are never too old to be happy.

I Want To Be Your Friend Forever

I want to be your best friend
Now and till the very end.
Always being there for you
No matter what you go through.

I want to be there even when you mourn.
Whether in the night, noon or morn.
I will stick with you till tomorrow.
Sharing in your pain, joy and sorrow.

I want to be with you all the way
And not only for this passing day.
Cheering you on when your way is right
Or giving you a warning when it isn’t so bright.

I want to be your truest friend
Way beyond the farthest bend.
Giving you all the support you require
When to meet your goals, you aspire.

I want to be your friend and brother
Whenever, wherever and forever.
Infusing you with the power of hope
So that in adversity you can cope.

I want to be there when you need me.
For that’s where I was called to be.
So that as you play on in your game.
I’ll be in the grandstand to holler your name.

Count on me as a true friend forever.
I promise to never leave you, ever.
Whether you win or you lose.
To be with you I will choose.

Even when your adversaries roar.
I will always be there to help you soar.
Like the wind under the wings of the eagle.
I’ll help you overcome the struggle.

Jesus For Life

Satan was defeated before I was born.
But I didn’t know it until I was born again.

When Jesus was crucified, satan made the greatest mistake of his life.
And when Jesus arose from the dead, He striped satan of all his powers.

When I gave my life to Christ, satan lost the battle for my soul forever.
Now, I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus.

No to satan, yes to Jesus… forever!
Now I belong to “JESUS for LIFE!”

How about you?

Tears to Cheers, The Battle Is Won!

You have had your years of tears.
Now welcome your season of cheers.
God knows and calls you by your name.
And He is not calling you to shame.

You have had your seasons of pains.
By faith receive your harvest of gains.
It could never be by might or sight.
But it is by your right in Christ.

You have been trying to be tough.
Because things have been so rough.
You have been going at a frantic pace.
It is time for you to rest in His grace.

Now Cheer up in your labour of love.
Help has come to you from above.
You may have been badly shaken up.
But this is not the time to give up.

Stand up, stand up for what is right.
And with all your heart fight.
Get ready and keep it steady.
By faith the battle is won already.

When Will Perfection Come?

You cannot please everyone
I want to stand firm in faith all the time.
But sometimes, doubts unsettle my balance.

I want to please everyone every time.
But I can only try, I can’t do it obviously?

I want to be all smiles whenever you see me.
But not when sometimes pains sting like bees.

I want to reach out and change the world.
Who do I think I am? Definitely not God!

I want to look young and beautiful forever.
But natural laws are still actively working in me.

I want to get everyone to like me.
Not when ‘hate’ is still a word in the dictionary.

I strive to be better than I am now.
But when will perfection come?
