The poem(s) are below...



Donkeys are never carried
Hens never miscarry 
Cows don’t hutch 
Pointing fingers, the norm
A person killed by his persona

My ego shadows my vision 
My fault lines… eyelided by ignorance
Ego contesting with my vision
Mission straying from vission
Literaly a juvenilled dead man walking 

Unconsciously delayed my blessings
Forgot my bridal vows 
To dine in my fathers house 
Thinner and thinner I grow everyday 
‘’Forgot’’ to eat the daily bread
Been full of boos and roasted meat 
The last time I remember 
I Turned down a date with Christ

Our wedding has no guests 
He said its my failure to invite guests
Our home will be boring 
No value no guests no music 
Forgot time in his house,
Met a new lover 
He showed me how to spend 
How to pass time 
Apparently the ten commandments 
Just cock block fun
Even Drunk dad knew the church
Mama cries every day in prayer
Used to feel the pain…
Soul Numbness been imminent 
With time I lost his number 
When I needed him 
He was not on my phone book 
My new boyfriend Lucifer
Well let’s say he left with everything he brought

Just got a message that he was passing by 
My friend batimayo called loudly 
So will I 
I will bow down and remind him 
Of how beautiful I was 
I will do my lashes for him
He took lashes for me
Manicure pedicure tone my face in foundation
He is the firm foundation
Prepare a meal for him 
Not bread a surprise meal 
I know he will come with the daily bread 
Invite some guests over
I know they need to see him 
Wait for him 
I know he will pass by 
I mean He can’t forget us
Our smiles our miracles 
Our fellowships 
How we used to blend perfectly 
I know him he is soft hearted 
He will restore me 
I know
He can’t just pass two people gathered in his fellowship
He promised me that
