A Sinner's Prayer


Oh Lord, I am selfish but no fish I sell
A true believer I am though I’m an outlaw,
I’m your truant Christian;
Every day, I fear to wake up on knees. 
I am a sinner in your eyes, Lord!

Oh Lord, humanitarian I never lose the dream.
Huge work, I hate on a day of Sunday.
On a sunny day, stings I stuck on his path.
As I was passing at church to pray.
Yet, a ream of sins I bore in your beam.

At church, on knees, I sat and stood.
For hugely inferior I humbly trapped him.
Thorns and hurdles, he stood in with no food.
Fearless, asylum with no plum I seek here,
Lord, in your sacred title, hide me as a sinner.

Pardon pour on me profusely, Lord!
Those bleeding inside and outside leave alone.
But still, keep your ears on me here melt in May,
Forget those moaning and yelling for caused groan. 
In your castle, Lord, tilts and alms I’ll pay while knelt. 
For I am your Christian, my Lord.

King With No Crown


Kindly, God created humans with luck
In a garden, He placed Adam with martini
Not to live hurdles, but happiness in ton
Gambling, humans weren’t allowed to long

With power, Adam sat on the garden pew
In times God made him Eve, a helper Gemini
To crown him with all possible powers to get
Hence a king, all prerogatives with.

Now Eve causes trees grow thorn 
Ongoing suffering roots in Eden go
Cos Eve listened to the Serpent comic
Rays of hope vanished for ever

Over time, Adam has to sweat to eat too
Without hope of returning to Eden window
Now, Adam has lost his crown

Yesterday and Today


Yesterday was today
Rain fell night and day
It was shining all times
The land was green
The moon was not visited

Among people, love was genuine
Compassion was a heartily virtue
People spoke to one other friendly
No terrorism we heard
No climate issues we knew

Love was in our hearts
Life was valued
Peace was on the land
No woman was raped
No child was on the street

But today is a different day
Homeless people here and there
Growing more desperate
Rain has gone and people are selfish
For man has become mischievous

Revenge and hatred dwell in our hearts
For dignity has become volatile
The ecosystem is damaged
Bombs and terrorism kill us
WhatsApp, TV and Facebook replaced human dialogue

Yesterday and today make the future
We need peace, neighbors and safe atmosphere
Otherwise, we are homeless
We need to live peacefully
In a conducive environment

Hell On Earth


Satan orders Eve to give Adam
For humanity fades; there settles curse
Curse on the land, on parents and generations
Generations are victims of their innocence
Innocence for ignoring their suffering
Hell in Paradise  

For Cain kills Abel for jealousy
Jealousy for disgust and endless wars
Wars by colonizers over minerals
Minerals remain uncontrolled
Uncontrolled are the behaviors
Hell in Africa  

For a man’s unwillingness to leave power
Power that impedes fair elections
Elections hindered by men of terror
Terror directed to humans and nature
Nature’s destroyed by stained humans
Hell in Central Africa  

For no fear to remove rights claimers
Daytime people pitilessly kill others
Bloody is the land, no peace and no food
Life is worthless, there are lots of screams
Killing for power and minerals is blatant 
Satan lives in the DR Congo, for that’s hell

Had I Been A Peaceful Fighter


Had I been a peaceful fighter 1
I’d carry my gun
And daily sit in the sun
Only near the sea
For everyone to see

Had I been a nonviolent fighter 6
I’d certainly need a gun
I would have lots of fun
And wouldn’t shoot anyone
Because I love everyone

A passive warrior had I been 11
A gun, I would need
For no living creature I would kill
But help communities build a mill
To make my people keen

Had I been a diplomatic fighter 16 
I would need a gun
That no person would fear 
For that is a pacific gun
That is not disgraceful

The harmless gun I would carry 21
Would make me a people’s soldier
That would close the hole
At my gun’s nose
To bring peace to the world.

My Heart Is Bleeding


My heart is bleeding
I can’t believe this feeling
My eyes are terrified
And my ears are blocked
By hearing the stories
Depicting their suffering
On their rough premises

My heart is bleeding
My legs are wobbling
My body has snowed
This is too heavy
I’m hurt teenagers are wedding
They are denied rights
The moon will not shine

My heart is bleeding
It is cold learning
The day does not wake
Until the morning has come
Women and girls can’t read nor write
They are confined to the kitchen
It breaks my heart.

Evil's No More Comedy


Today, I climbed a high mountain.
Mountain where I shout my disapproval.
Disapproval of today’s social illnesses.
Illnesses shattering the life on earth.
Earth, our valuable mother.

Our kind mother’s mind’s unhappy today.
Today, days are red and prickly to dismay.
No walks but talks of wounds and worries.
Worries symbolizing contemporary sorrows.
Sorrows as the sun’s been sent off brightness.

Blazing conflicts for misery with societal evils.
Evils of acute and endless sticking on power.
Power of killing your people and feeling a doer.
Happy becoming the almighty guide.
For polygamy and alcohol abuse push wide.

Here and there dangle abuse and corruption.
Corruption and police harassment in evolution.
Harassment causing animosity and nausea.
Disorder, anarchy and negligence for criteria.
In media, tribalism and phobia en vogue.

Tribalism and ostracism feeding conflicts.
Wars predicting our fateful future in shifts.
The future’s now plunked in deep black darkness,
Slaughtering hope and causing death in a mess.
Death buries us all, and evil’s no more comedy.

Betrayal


Great were the old times
When we first met eye in eye
Green was the grass everywhere
Sorrows we had not in our minds
For memorial stories we shared
Our hearts beat with entire joy

Now as dreams have evaporated
Life has become acrimonious
Worries have grown in our hearts
Great has been the created distance
Between us yet we are close
Sleepless nights we spend

Nobody knows but siblings think
Our bond is mounting naturally
Yet love is virtual as lies hamper
Now broken are these weak hearts
That no more beat for each other
And so both our feet are wobbling

I feel hugely let down for
Surprisingly that gipsy guy
Has stolen your striking sight
By creating perfidious smiles in you
And his unwise sweet words
That make you feel mine bitter

It is hard to digest that disloyalty
Making me lose my only paradise
My land with a limpid well between
That used to quench my arid thirst
Evaporate the cold in me
To keep my body and soul healthy

Although you no more hug me
But let me die of cold dreams
Fainting to kill your emotions for
Unrealistic promised untrue worlds
I am certain when the day wakes up
The sun will shine for true love to revive

Child of Unknown Father


Before the birth of fatherless children
Life was good, the land was peaceful
To the field we went happily
Children knew and played with fathers
Peace died because war was awful
To unlivable areas women fled unhappily

Fathers taken as war hostages
Evils of sickness, hunger and thirst we endured
In our hideouts, the worst of evils was war rape
Unknown gunmen made us impregnated
Fatherless children we delivered
Children of mothers they are 

Community hates this for man decides
On him, mother and child depend
Wordless the mother is, and so the child becomes
Unhappily and unfreely the child grows
He cannot play with his unknown dad
So shame builds on him, as no father he has

We never decided to bear a child in impurity
Who will never be at harmony
And whose life and education are risky
For he is fatherless and family ignominy 
Ultimately, mother and child need basic rights 
For they both are victims of their innocence

Peace


I need peace with myself
With the neighbor and the neighborhood
For both complete each other
I share my peace with anyone
For I need internal peace
I give peace to get peace

I need peace with everyone
With the people around me
Men, women and children
Abhorrence begets unneeded fight
And hostility breaks peace
By creating unending animosity

I need peace with the environment
For it gives us the air we breathe
The trees we see around us
The blue sky we see above
The sea we see and the green grass
They all need peace for survival

Peace in our hearts, in our mouths
In our hands, in our eyes with anyone
Our dream of amity must abound daily
Peace today and tomorrow
Nurtures the thought of seeking
Peace with everyone and Mother Nature
