Night With No Stars

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [NIGHT WITH NO STARS]

Agony dawning in his eyes
Silence rivalled the absence of light
Darkness crowded his room
As he slunk back into the dark
Regretting the lost warmth of his parents
Who died of starvation

Hunger leaning across his bowel
A garbled moan arose in his throat
Mingling with the pace of his breath
His empty stomach juggles deftly
In handicap racesdisc…

Inside the cracked mouldy black pot Mother is cooking round stones Assured children think, “Soon the yam will be ready”


I Saw The Sun Weep

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [I SAW THE SUN WEEP]

The shining sun stared sternly
at the busy earth
mortal clays jumped
here and there
with toiling hands
and their suffering sweat
brought out tears
from the sun’s eyes

through steep paths
from bush to roads,
heavy loads travelled
on bent backs
to noisy markets
beggars begging beggars

short skirt stood
by the road side
calling to be stripped

Rain In The Dry

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [RAIN IN THE DRY]

As the bald trees
Sway gaily in the breeze
We see undying love
Ready to fall from above

Soon the sky sheds tears
Tears to wash off our fears
No more will we die of thirst
No more will blood melt into sweat

The thirsty land will taste rain
And lost hope we will regain
While dry year turns to wet season
The sick crops will grow green (more…)

I Come

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [I COME]

I come to back the lack
I come to put on the wall the ladder
I come to give hope
Like the pope

I come for peace
Not suck and pierce
I come, through my words
The world gets fixed
I come not to break your virgin heart
Nor serve you my buttock fart

I come to meet mind with mind
So we can build our land
I come to mop your tiles
Which is covered with oil and…

Will I Be Remembered?

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Will I Be Remembered?]

If I leave
On a journey
Never to return
To where I once lived
Will I be remembered?

If I leave
On a stint
Without a print
On where I once lived
Will I be remembered?

If I leave
On a mission
Never to return (more…)

Cradle Of My Poems

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [CRADLE OF MY POEMS]

where day darkened
and I forgot my memory of remembrance

on the mountain-rill of sorrow
your love lightens my path
before the noisy clouds fall……

to the cabinet planet of poet’s
prime angels of words and versification
with hearty dictionary of your love (more…)

I Am A Poet

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [I AM A POET]

I’m a poet
All I do is write
From my very first breath
I chose to do the ‘poem fight’

I’m a poet
I know no other hobby
I’d rather unravel filth
than support the unGodly

I’m a poet-murderer
The ‘pen’ is my weapon
against political monsters
No remedy for my venom (more…)

Birth By Imagination

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [BIRTH BY IMAGINATION]

I will unchain my imagination
Free it from every limitation
Build a hedge around all forms of resistance
Energise it with the semen of persistence…
Then I will soar high above like an eagle!

When heavenly voice vouched for my immortality
When the voice vowed: “Your thoughts
are you”, it then unequivocally meant:
“I am what I imagined I am”!

It All Fades

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [IT ALL FADES]

At the genesis of the world
None was, but Him and His aides
Rough to say as we’re not yet mould
In our minds it has faded

After He had made the light
From it He created the night
So we’d know how comes our days
But in our minds it has faded

Our valued flesh came from mere earth
Where at last shall rot our dear hearts
Yet we abate not our cruel…
