Best Kuwabo Mubyana Poems

+ Fav Poet


Life's like a boat, adrift in this ocean;
Í'm sailing by others in very slow motion.
Year by year I'm getting older.
My fingers are frozen, this water's colder!

Others have sunk, I see wrecks behind,
I'm trying to blot the images out of my mind.
You meet the eccentrics, age they've defied
And, I, ashamed, run off to hide.

There's so little time left, why can't I just die?
Some don't understand... they even ask why.

    This is such an excellent, and unfortunately it's life for many. However, life is still in a state of evolution and progress. Mindfulness should allow one to break the cycle of suffering. I like the essence of the poem. If you would also like to read some uplifting and inspirational pieces, check out my "2009 Best Christian Poetry Award" in the blog section, dated Sunday, May 10, 2009, regarding my book. It also has great Epulaeryu poems. Great job and God bless always! ~Joseph
