Let It Out

Let it out
Let it flow
Let it glow
On your cheeks
Down your chest
Be mad
Be sad
Scream some
Wail loud and long
Like a banshee
Let the wind
Ferry your fear
Far, far away
Give your grief
Worries and sorrow
To the breeze of the night
Roll them all
Into the trash
Throw them out
And let them go

No Words

Today, I have no words
Qualified enough to describe
The depth of my pain
I have no words
Huge enough to describe
The emptiness in my heart
I have no word
Worthy of the thickness
Of the darkness drowning my soul
I have no words
Colorful enough to express
My desires for each day
That hurries by without their fulfilment
Or for the wishes I have for tomorrow
No words deep enough to form my fears
Of what the future holds
I pray, dear father that you look deep into my heart
And find the words that my lips cannot form
Soothe my worries
And grant my supplications

“…..Like Gold”

I’ve known pain
I’ve known fear chilling than the harmattan air
Pain, fiercer and harsher than the whips of a thousand horsemen

My soul sank deep into the river of pain and fear

I sought refuge in the bosom of the younger dawns
I hid in their embrace and they comforted me
I dreamt of the rebirth of her garden in all its glory
I felt the healing miracle of the morning sun when Eva
bathed in her warmth; and I saw her inhabitants,
came alive with the songs of the birds, and fluttering flowers in the breeze
I’ve known pain;
Nameless, faceless fear

I sunk deep into their depths
And they hurt no more

Empty Vessel

Switch off your glaring light
Oh ageless sun!
Spin no more on your axis
Oh mother earth!
My soul is lost in time
Her vessel mourns her transition
Why would you go on without me?
Stop! Stay! Proclaim my demise

* This poem is about my pain. I could write a whole book about it, but this will do for now. I feel like I merely exist to watch others live. It’s so painful. I keep blocking it out but I guessed I succeeded in blocking out everything, till there is nothing left. *

Lessons I Learnt

I have lived…or sort of
I have dined with laughter
I have cared
I have embraced love
I have walked with pain
I have dined with sorrow
I have tasted betrayal
I have drunk the wine of desertion
I have made friends with fear and guilt
I have chewed on suffering
I have inhaled rejection
I have been broken
I have learnt to bend
I have gone to hell and back
I have survived
One lesson I learnt?
Life goes on
Live it
