This is not a Poem

    By Afolabi Kayode

    This is not a poem
    for I know not how to write one
    Its from the depth of my heart
    but its not meant to beautify an art
    .
    This is not a poem
    Make of it what you will
    Its not the effect of a pill
    Probably a reflection of how I feel
    .
    This is not a poem
    it might be the vision of an eye that is blind
    the thoughts of a befuddled mind
    Roaming to the dictates of the wind
    .
    This is not a poem
    Its just the scribble of a pen
    that can be revealed with a mien
    Its only for those that can discern
    .
    This is not a poem
    for its not as deep as the sea
    with words I fail to play
    the verse are quiet frail
    .
    This not a poem
    but the drummer can decipher the utterance of the
    talking drum
    what this is i'm not sure
    so I will let you be the judge
