From my poetry collection DESTINY


I am a son behind the sun.
I am a daughter with no water.
I am a man not even humane.
I am a woman stolen by a man.

Living is like a death sentence.
My lips are sealed,can't utter a sentence.
Don't have no tears, to cry my why.
Why i must live and never die.

This heartless life cuts me as a knife.
No blood inside,only fears that i hide.
No God by our side,only our killed pride.
This world is a prison,with no reason.

Oh this is so sad. A bleeding heart laying out its tears for all to finally notice. There's a despondency that settles as each line goes on, a definite darkness overtaking. This is powerfully emotive as a reading experience for me. Well done, thanks. PS: Sorry, away so long... Hope all is going well on your side.

Well and compactly written. I especially like the line Don't have no tears, to cry my why.
