kelvin nwanji Poems
Off his feet, he was swept, Flew high and danced in the cloud. Genuine ecstasy from his depth, Like a fool, he laughed aloud.
Mother’s children killing mother’s children, Blood of brothers slain by brothers, Flows down even beyond home’s borders, To strangers it cries,
When My Memoir Will Be Done
Dirty clouds hovers above the sky, Hurricanes sweep through the city, Fear grips the men, shackles their spirit to try, Conflicting emotions, anger or pity?
The World I Live
I sleep in the shades called darkness, In the hollowness of existence Where every now petrifies me And hopes are only impossible dreams.
Who Do We Run To?

Feeble, even obsessed,
Rationality and sanity escaped.
Beautiful as the angel of the morning sun,
Treacherous as a demon of the moonless night.
Her piety, an act for the one.
Sensuality a weapon against might.
Guile were her words,
Wealth was his flaw,
