What more can I write
Except to stagger
On paper
What good has it done
Only to deepen
Sudden depression
What help such has become
When pain becomes acute
What light it bringeth forth
Only a shadow
Of what once was
Such disaster it has been
In my lonely prison
In shackles of emotion
And dour- faced beauties
What hope has it brought
Except a similar one 
Of future forever’s
What more can I write   
Only that I’m down at heart

    Cheer up Damilola. Surely the fruit of humbleness is manifested in your writing. Truly God has a purpose in your poetry.. Diana Mohammed

    Such a lonely poem. Keep writing - it may do others good and hopefully the spirit follows. Kathy Thanks for your comment on Whose Blood.
