Accused

ACCUSED


without raising a finger of accusation

you have left me forlorn

alone in this jungle of skyscrapers

I am not aware of my faults

but I realize with great pain

you have robbed me of my powers

to write a poem
paint a picture
sing a song


the world laughs at me

at my naked postures of a beggar

they make a mockery of my efforts

and spat at my inabilities



how long have I to suffer this indignation

why not rob me of my lifeline

and let me join you in another life

blessed with all the powers you gave me once
