A child of hopelessness


Thinking out of this lines
Hoping meaning will peep through
Hoping light will shine
On thoughts that shadowed doom
The anxious mind is lonesome
Finding rest is chasing his own tail
Leaves him turning in circles
With rocky roads his feet blister
Tomorrow promised peace
But at sun rise the cock pronounced it all a lie
New day
Same worries
Empty bellies chorus in anger
As the afternoon sun bakes hearts and dreams into bricks
Politics lied
Religion sinned
Love became a stranger
Because the spirit was to poor to afford it
Beast is all that is left
Bloodshot eyes see through greed and envy
Like cataract
A blindness but has no cure
Madness found nesting
Sitting on eggs of determination
The Nigerian sky
Today is never promised
to steal it,the only way
Bare footed on the burning tar
Alive but residential address Hell
What difference did school ever make
Mother only worked harder to pay for books that never came
The holes in this shorts open a window to more than just a bare bottom
A history of lack
A government that failed
A future denied
And a conscience in grey
