Unending Pains



  • By Kingsley Godstime




    Our heart hurts carrying the thought
    Our mouth can't wait to utter dark words
    We took pain as our bosom friend
    Causing our gains a leap to the other end
    Poverty became our neighbor
    Sickness, our landlord
    Our thoughts travelled million seas, mountains, valley and oceans
    Our hearts eeried as pain gets the better part of us
    In times of distress
    Birds goes to their nest for solace
    Rats, their hole
    Snails, their shell
    Eagles soar high
    But our life is next to darkness
    We hate to see the daylight
    We hate to see the glowing sun
    We hate to see when the moon smiled at our predicament
    And the stars laughed at our nakedness
    Our roses withered off
    Our water sour
    Our life in shambles
    Our legs quiver
    The unending pains eating us up
    Turning our light, darkness
    making our future bleak
    We looked more and saw less
    We talked more but heard less
    We seeked peace
    But what we got was war.
