Envious Apology

Poem By samuel nze

I think it is silly
When you envy someone;
You try to measure up
But find it hard,
So you wish him dead.
Away, away!
Move away from here
I hate to see you,
Your sight irritates me;
See the way you
Strut;
Your shoulders measure up
To your nose;
You give me
That slant look
As if I am a nobody
But the fact that
I do not have the talents
You do
Does not make you any better
Than me.

As The Dawn Comes.

As the dawn comes
I remember what mama used to say
You are a man
Never you forget

A Kiss May Mean Anything

One must not take love wrongly
A kiss may mean anything
Emotion gets physical in different ways
If planted on the head

Alive

I am quarreling
With security;
Failing to believe
I am endangered.

A Man Should Have Respect

A man should have respect
His case may not accord him that,
Nor his situation
Yet he must feel self worth.

A Robber's Apologia

Dusk has arrived,
Cover for my game;
Vehemence is swifter,
It will be tonight.

Boys Are Simple And Short

Boys are simple and short
Girls are complex and long
But both are human beings -
How different!
