A Night In Nigeria

Poem By Kendzi Samuel

Blue, black, and a little of green,
Colors I see, mixed in the night sky.
Stained with white clouds that seem to glow
But sure sparkles the stars tis sprinkled with

Do you see the sad humor in his eyes?
Do you see the mask of quiet shame she wears?
The evening breeze chills my skin, of course
tis only your embrace would bring me warmth.

Grab my shoulders, shake em, rouse my soul
The bell of alarm jilts me awake.
Crickets, toads and generator sets,
The music retain it's mournful crescendo.

We roll of the mat, to the cold floor
And dance in our dreams to this dreadful dirge.
Your cold hands could reach beyond the veil of my soul,
It could sieve out the emotions mixed in my sorrow.

The moon, a half eaten cake in the skies,
I am content to watch this child smile
A mother sways gently, rocks the child strapped at her back,
And the sweet lullaby she sings carries the child to sleep.

Beautiful Darkness In Her Eyes

Beautiful darkness in her eyes,
Black they are, in all it's shades.
They hold the promise of paradise
But give my heart the torment of hades.

Broken Nights

Broken nights, and shattered daylight
A dream stole my heart, while toddler's feet wobbled,
Now trapped in a world I dont understand
That laughs when I say my mind is troubled

Regret, In Still Flow

I know a dream of time travels
Standing on a beach,
Awaiting the shores to meet
Ruined by both regret and destruction

Blue Paradise

No dove, No voice
Just an indifferent John
No love, no choice
Or the cries of a stillborn

Ready To Learn

Here are my dreams
In colors, not in black and white
I wouldn't let you see my fears though
Cause somewhat I think, I got inside
