Alone in my wakeful sleep

(This peice was inspired by a poem titled "NIGHT OF PAIN" which was written by Onalethuso Petrus Ntema(Botswana)

Alone in my wakeful sleep i wonder;
I wonder alone in my wakeful sleep,
my soul reddened as beet,
As t crushes out through the stomas of my calm skin,
Any moment I could depart life and fall frostily at my feet,
I tremble in fear like a feigning cleric reviled by time,
The road seems too tight and so thin,
My eyes tells riddles!

Alone in my wakeful sleep i wonder;
Will my faith save me?
I wonder alone in my wakeful sleep,
As my heart tire out at a lingering bound,
The strain stretches gently to my deep
It fills my body all around...
