Eulogy To A Woman

Poem By Doris Dzameshie

Today, she woke up alive and strong
tonight we mourn her
she was born afresh this morning with endless possibilities
tonight we mourn her

She rode the tides of life this afternoon
the waves of everlasting forbearance
washed over her like the cloak of death
in eternity sprinkled life
she gathered moss to meet her maker

Rain shall not touch her anymore
neither will she feel the rays of the sun
nobody can help her anymore
as the great 'I am'
beaconed her to his eternal bosom
where she can be free with endless possibilities

In memory of Whitney Houston - 1963 - 2012

A heart of stone shall set a trap for
a Human being?
If not a cat!
If not a mouse!

Jerusalem Shall Not Sleep

Where is your God?

Yes, your God

Mango Tree

Great soul, why have you planted me here?
In the middle of this great compound
Only to behold these fleeting lives.
As a mango tree, l have stood


The ravings of a mad woman
They are coming she says
They are coming
Who are they? I ask

Mirror Of Life

The two faced mirror of life

Why do you deceive me and make me look pretty

4 Peas In A Pod

Where are the 4 peas in the pod?
Are they all players?
Are they all slayers?
All prostituting in a prayer?
