Farewell To Love

Poem By micheal udenyi

I gave up all i had
just for me to be heard
but lacked the boldness
to fix the bait to the hook

I tried to open up
but all i could like a broken cup
was to see myself shattered in shamble
as though defeated in a rumbe

She loves some one else
for so i was told or else
i would have been gone
but my love sticks like gum

Fare well to love
good bye my love
as i leave you like a friend
to meet at last like strangers

Why is love so cruel
to have tortured the heart once loved
she may not have noticed
but a murderer having mudered

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

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

Days have passed
since i left you
but it is as fresh as yesterday

End Of Me

Just because i am born of a woman
my life is but for a few days
but my world is surrounded by troubles
i rise gloriously like a flower at dawn
