A collection of poems in four parts.


THE MAN LIVED

Sleep engulfed me
In my austere bed,
Scheming and sweating
I made more dreams
As success eluded me.

In my hour of disgrace,
Fear became my companion
And shame became my strength,
To hope and to search
For any rebirth.

Ridicule tortured my steps,
A bruised tribal pride
Engendered my pains
And a love of self
Reinforced my prison walls.

Now I am oblivious
To the conflicts for my honour,
I drain my blood
Into their merciless cups,
For death has given me life.
