Things Fall Apart

Shattered life like rain clouds broken
Thunder rolls loud, the lion has spoken
Crisp cold air of oncoming storm
Feeling like an adult in a child’s form

My world comes crashing down
Echoes in the cave, deafening sound
Splinters flying everywhere
Groan in anguish, gross pain, a tear

One place to go, one shelter seek
Where I won’t feel that I am weak
In the arms of the Redeemer
There I will be sheltered forever

    The old Chinua Achebe line ... met him once, when he was released from jail. Never heard from him again. Quite a revolutionary guy, he is Biafran, you know. This poem is exactly as he would think.
