Lamentation

All this is not mine

Unemployment

suffering

famine

and insecurity;

all this is not mine.

I was born with a silver spoon in my hands

but situation had it taken from me.

Rise and shine

Aside Posted on

Friends and well-wishers urging me to rise and shine
it’s time I should step foreward and show up the world my mettle
and stop behaving the gosling I appear to be .
But I seem to be in a stupor
Stuck in mud and in limbo
not of my making but incapability’s hand in it .
I lack the facilities and material to do it all
poverty dot on me so well .
Fate has it that I will die a pauper and buried in nondescript burial grounds.

What’s moving ?

What’s moving?
Nothing is moving but the people moving
and time moving fast to the inevitable end
doom.
