Is This Sympathy?

The drums were beaten
And the food that was cooked
Could not be eaten
Why?

People had drunk much
And now turned drunkards
The news was so piercing
To hear
The pain was so heavy
To bear

At the obsequies
The piano composed songs in melodies
From its keys
Nothing on two legs could dance
When given the chance

Oh commiserations given to the hurt
Oh raising the elegies of the heart

Born A Soldier

looking at my origin,
please do not tell me
to go to the army
forget about the structure
of my body
i have been a soldier
from birth

in my neighbourhood,
both genders
have been soldiers
recruited by hardlife
we fight equally for survival
after being so collosal
for our cradles of arrival.

just take a look
at the woman
chasing the V W
and the man

Night….

Night

To the vampire is life

Another feeling to the husband and wife

Night

Is when the vagabond teens prefer

For promiscuity will occur

But mine,

A repeated elegy to be read

As contemplation cut a swathe through my head

Night

My Black Home.

In my black home
Sometimes the opposite skin
Is perceived to be supreme
Even than our kin.

In my black home
Leaders see their reigns
Everlasting and forget that
Big ones had come and gone as the rains
That fell yesterday.

In my black home
My brothers desire
Toiling on lands of the white
And on return bring home pastures
So green to get here
If the peaks had made patriotism
Prior to party love
Would it be so?

Alone, That's What I've Always Been.

Alone,
That’s what I’ve always been
With no one to push me
When I climb
With no shoulder to soak my tears
When I cry
Alone,
That’s what I’ve always been.

Alone,
That’s what I’ve always been
With no one to see
The few times I am glad
With no one to look up to
When I am sad
Alone,
That’s what I’ve always been.

Alone,
That’s what I’ve always been

In School

in school,
when i saw you
i intuited i have found
my lost world in you
i wish i could act
to be appreciated
by you in school.

in school,
it would be too sad
to narrate the ordeal
i have been through
i wonder if its best
i had met you
in the school.

in school,
though i had not said it
there has been so many ways
that i have shown it
