Bad Comments.

Poem By micheal udenyi

Give me work to do
Show me how to do it
If i fail to do it
Punish me severely.

Give me a query to answer
Deny me of my rightful position
If you feel i am wrong
But do not use bad comments.

Give me grass to cut
Show me how to cut it
If i fail to cut it
Beat me blue black

Give me books to read
Manhandle me mercilessly
If i fail to read them
But do not use bad comments

Bad comments are like arrows
Shot at the heart
It pierces through to the mind
And wounds the healthy soul

It is never forgotten
It glitters as the stars
It burns as the fire
And rekindles the mind

When ever the commentor comes
It is remembered
He said this about me
I will never forgive him

Never give bad comments
About somebody
It is easily remembered
It is an ever green wound
Given to the healthy soul.

Your clear but simple style of writing is evident in this poem especially. Superb! Kat

the evils that are done in this country
are too great for the ears alone to hear
they are too much for the eyes alone to see
for the those who promised to lead us

Nigeria's Call Obey

From within she called out my name
the more she screamed, it seemed she sunk

she called on, but I was too deaf t o hear

End Of Me

Just because i am born of a woman
my life is but for a few days

i rise gloriously like a flower at dawn
