A Broken Dream

Poem By Poppie Mira

At the corner of these hollow ideas
where you once sung
now lays a cemetery
filled with decayed melodies

Was I not good enough
to ride your wings
and fly away?

Was laziness
intelligent enough to steal you
in my crafted hands?

You were robbed
in daylight
and tossed to swim on air

Yesterday,
you were a candle
that was once ready
to light my tomorrow
Today,
you are a dark
that closes my doors
and covers my sight

I Am An African

I am an African
I was born in Africa
Suckled mother Africa breast
I am beauty Africa

My Heart In The World

My heart cries
for change in the world

My heart bleeds

The Seed Of Love

You took my heart by the charm
We flew to distant desert
To sow the seed of love
My roots broaden deep into ignorance

What Must I Say?

If I see her in hate
Tearing endlessly with mislaid love

Tell me

My Death

Is this an end to my story?
Did my heart complete writing my book?
Will my eyes search more eternal days?
Am I prepared to fly home and
