Me, You, Us


                            I

in my tattered wares
all I think of when I smile
with my sorrowful face
are what I wear when I see the future
playing on tuneless solfa.

                            II 

my protuded belly
is filled with fruitless promises
the one that was made to my fore-parents
which made us pregnant with hopes
of a future change.

                           III

your silent voice
whispers over the earth crust
in all axis and crooked areas
where destinies are robbed off
by men of suits.

                           IV

with your dusty feets
you step on the palace of death
killed in the inside with blades of hopeless hops
eye blinded to change
cheeks swollen to speak.

                            V

we shall stand to our feet
to journey through memory lanes of failure undone jobs
silenced heroes
unmodeled to speak.

                           VI

with our ragged clothes
dead faces
flattened feets
protuded belly
we will seek change even into the deep.

About Iwundu Wisdom

Iwundu Wisdom is an avid believer in going against the norm and the concept of never giving up. He loves to reflect and represent the most natural circumstances in his narrative. His roving persona occasionally graces the notion of the great disparity of individual achievement in relation to environment, and so he thinks...and thinks. When he's not staring at the blinking cursor, he's pulling at the strings of a guitar. Or just sitting and thinking about this yawning gape called life.
