This Journey Of Sorrows

Trapped to be bruised
This soul weeped, 
my first breath..,
'Death has come',

Labour struggles
Spewed me out
With water and blood
of mother's womb
Erasing memories
of life I last lived,

Caging my thoughts
in flesh and bones,
My soul hypnotized,
In illusory comforts
Till death became
Destiny of birth

Here is me now
Sowing my seed
In the ground
Of my adversary's hold
Flooded with streams
Of innocent blood
Bleeding wounds
Of democracy sword

Standing is of the fittest,
Here I sojourn 
Seeking God knowledge
Supplicating in tears
Sins of my sweating 
Bleeding to race
Survival and power

The moon of night
denies us light
darkness thickens,
Fear cripple minds
With fists clinched
Love weeps 
The heart broken

When is tomorrow
Of this scene of sorrow,
Pierced sharply with hate
Even to my bones and 
The path of truth 
Is thorny and narrow

Here is our journey,
Walk of mortality
Highways of death traps
Led of the blind
Speeches of hate
Destiny is hades

Of my sweat and pain
Is tears and cries
to comfort my sleep
In darkness of the tomb
Where my voice
Will speak no-more
and my age,
Just the count of 

With one hand
To the heavens raised
My seed I sowed thee
" in this journey of 
  seek knowledge of 
  He is your very being
  and in Him are all 
  made perfect".
