Where Do Our Dreams Go? January 13, 2020

50

Where do our dreams go? Who knows? I wrote this poem in 2016 when I was feeling reflective about life generally, especially when we were younger. We dream, we set goals, we make plans. But do our dreams always become real? It was easier when we were younger. It was easier to just dream, make plans and set goals with our peers or alone. It was my escape when I was younger. I would pretend to...

Have You Ever? (4) December 9, 2019
Have you ever felt so misearable So much you wanted to weep your heart out? Have you felt the constriction of your heart in its chamber? As your mind struggled to repress The distress The mortification, treachery And the agony of stinging tears Pushing Forcing to break through Somewhere from the back of your head But couldn't Wouldn't Because even the relief From the threatening drops Is not enough *If you buy something through the links/banners,...

Other days I can't but picture What could have been I am not ungrateful I am...

Like Gold -A Poem on Pain And Triumph January 17, 2015
I have known painI have known fear  Fear chilling than the harmattan air Pain, fiercer and harsher than the whips of a thousand horsemenMy soul sank deep into the river of pain and fearI sought refuge in the bosom of the younger dawnsI hid in their embrace and they comforted meI dreamt of the rebirth of her garden in all its gloryI felt the healing miracle of the morning sun When Eva bathed in her warmth;...
