A Horses's Neigh

Poem By Temitayo Ankra

The wind whips through my mane like wild fire
For across the earth is nothing in my mind but freedom
I am free and I am wild
I can not be tamed
My breath is beginning to get shallow
I've been running for so long
My pace is still the same
The solid rythm turns to hollow thuds
I leap over the brush to escape
The beast is after me
I was born here and I know the land well
I can out run any predator without misplacing a step
I am different. But changes make my heart skip a bit
This beast is mounted on a brother and its coming fast
I slowly start to hear an echo in my foot steps
My muscles strain and my lungs grasps for breath
I make one last attempt
Suddenly I have new found strength and I surge ahead
Iturn and weave and follow secrets paths
Until I am out of breath and out of site
Mus racks my body as I walk towards a pool of water
I drink deeply and when I am satisfied I face my fears
That was close
I have known life this way all along
I cannot bear to think of what my life would be like
Without running free.

In Memories Of.......

Life Is A Journey

life they say, is the essence of living
living they say, is the essence of life
life thus, is a journey, that we live through
in the journeys we make, we are faced by the reality of brute

Wish.......

Sometimes wish that I could be alone
really alone, where neither friends nor foes would be close
just me and the air I breathe, a pen and paper, Searching for the right words to write how I feel
to ponder and fathom what life has in stalk for me, staring into space I begin the journey like a wheel

Coup D'Etate

A loud bang woke me
although with my blurry eyes, the bright light I could see
it sounded like firer works in December,
but it was only June if could remember
