Poem By micheal udenyi

I feel an emptiness inside of my soul
the things i love i hate the m just so
Oh love! love! do i mean hate
nothinhg matters, not even fate

When i sleep, empty nights
vain dreams vain academic light
I have not eaten for a night or two
may be its the cause, cause i'm hungry too

Poor me! no appetite for diet meal
I hate me, no not me
fear, fear, yea of the future
the great future renown

Damn dirty dealings dreary dad
thou doth make me much mad
that wonderful trick of nature do vent
and I resign to parent my parents

I disown all paternal links
shall I disdain the maternal bond-wink
all is gross, all is cruel, I am forgotten
but I see in the future-mirror crowds knocking on my begotten

are too great for the ears alone to hear

for the those who promised to lead us

the more she screamed, it seemed she sunk
no one, not even me to pull her up
she called on, but I was too deaf t o hear

when i was bowdlerised
when i was circumcised
when i was baptised

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
