I Was Alone

Written by Michael Nichol Kamara Title: I Was Alone I felt the pain; it was like an arrow piercing my heart I saw his face, I have never seen a man that big I was scared and wanted to shout but my voice was mute My mind.........I started sweating hard He walked close to me and I tried to run but I was crippled I begged him but he acted angry and wanting to do and go I tried to fight but I was blind, cripples and lazy It was at that point that I......... I felt the shame living in a community where youths engage themselves in activities that has nothing positive to give I saw my people in different corners and junctions I tried to talk to some but they deliberately rejected me I call to my brothers for help but they refused to help I saw my family members crying I asked why and there was none to answer I felt bad about myself. I asked for their forgiveness and none gave me attention I reach out to cars but the drivers pretended not to see me I reach out to the people that said they love me but they silently rejected me At that point I realized I was a lifeless soul My face was flooded with tears Tears of regrets Tears of failing to do well Tears of failing to worship God Tears of not being my brother’s keeper Tears of not helping people I was alone Abandoned by life Abandoned by people I was alone........ Oh no, I am going to be alone All in my casket and in my grave Oh, I forgot someone is going to be with me I am not going to be alone My deeds are my staunch friends and they would be there with me and not behind any fence
