They Thought I Was A Thief Too

Poem By samuel nze

They thought I was a thief too
Get those handcuffs jiffily
Let us brace him
How I quaked!

In terror we pray
Gnash our teeth
Our knees knock,
Our hearts resigned to fate.

It was my voice and identification
That affected my release
I was simply lucky
One of them knew me.

In terror we pray
Gnash our teeth
Our knees knock,
Our hearts resigned to fate.

Now I can exhale
I came closely calamity
Jaws of exclusion closed in on me
But Samson's grip loosed them again.

In terror we pray
Gnash our teeth
Our knees knock,
Our hearts resigned to fate.

I swing and exalt like Lekeleke
But I also quiz;
If God dwells in thick darkness,
Must I too?

In terror we pray
Gnash our teeth
Our knees knock,
Our hearts resigned to fate.

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!
