SOMEDAY

Someday, my rain will fall
Someday, my name will be a song

Someday, you will love me forever

People come and go

People stare and giggle

I am standing here alone

Many years pass me by

Me

I have a big dream

When l look up

I will smile again

Rainfall rainfall

Fall on me someday

Fall on me.

DAYS FROM NOW

I am calling the stars

I am counting the steps

I am staggering under loads of time

 Worrying about the things l do not know but l am a warrior

I am accusing the sun rays for burning my feet and fate

Days from now

I can define my life in chapters

I can laugh with no envy in my heart

Days from now

My headaches will vanish

My talent will shine

And l can tell my fortune and misfortunes

Days from now

I will dream, believe and achieve

I will not weep into the waters for my enemies to make merry and beat their stomachs.

Poetry on life

AanansePoetry

INTO THE WATERS

In the wasters, l rest my neck

And allow heavens to watch my brokenness

I purify myself, Wash my tears

Dry my unfortunate face in the sun

And find a new meaning in life

In the waters

I allow the billows of smoke to cover my nakedness

Hide my blemishes, Heal my bleeding heart

And fill my mind with absolute tranquillity

In the waters

My souls touches my spirit

My skin finds a fresh strength

I flourish like the herbs in the forbidden forest

Out of the waters

I go home completely new.

RIVER UNDER HIS EYES

What a way to end the story

They vowed not to worry

To love forever

And never say never

But from the river under his eyes

She drank life

Until the earth dried and he died

She drank barrels of sorrow

Until she fell off her cliff and die

Then she wiped all his tears

And their soul shone as stars

What love is this?

Not even death can make them part.

ALL NIGHT

All night

I pray to find myself

In the cave of the past

Pleading for the scars to heal

The scars of love gone wrong

Decisions never made

And hatred.

All night

My head hurts

As l think of myself, my pride , my life

If l loved unconditionally

Made that decisions

And confronted my fears

All night

I would have had a sound sleep like that child.

FIRE

I cannot hide it any longer,

Is the answer to many prayers,

So forget the past,

It bares your name.

I bet, you will find yourself,

You will have own voice,

Nothing bad will happen,

Take a bold,

And take the fire.

The dark days will be over,

You and l will have peace,

I cannot hide it any longer,

This is your destiny,

It belongs to you,

Is your desire,

Take your fire.

I bring the fire you left behind,

It burns and burns,

But it won’t burn you,

I bring the fire, fire, fire.

IN MY EYES

Look into my eyes,

What do you see,

My darling,

Love or lust?

The laughter in my eyes tell an emotional story,

People say, my eyes are beautiful and bewitching,

My seer, do you see lies?

Look into my eyes

What do you see, inspiration or perspiration?

Tell me the mysteries in the tear drop,

And the unhealed pain,

Come closer, my soothsayer,

Embrace my sadness,

And tell me, my tomorrow.
