(SOALS) SONG OF A LOST SOUL

I’ve kept myself busy throughout the day Trying to forget what you might say, As you give me that piercing stare, The long face of disappointment Accompanied by the sigh of regret The image of you shaking your head Is what I can’t bear to see. My life you pictured so bright, Tutored me to […]

WHEN THE COCK CROWS

That day when the cock crows, I will give a befitting yawn, When the sun creeps into the the skies of that faithful dawn When the sun gifts it’s tattoo across the lawn I will give a satisfying stretch I will scream to the tune of my creaking bed And sigh to the sounds of […]

MUDDY FINGERS

Upon the heated lands of the village Beside the gentle waters , Flowing from the eyes of Mother Earth. Beneath the mountains there I sit. Upon the soothing carpet of nature, I draw my hope and inspiration. For that is the only way I adore that which is within me. My fingers yearn for the […]
