Peter Daniel Phiri Poems
A Sacrifice For Love
In plight of loving you, I bleed, And willingly surrender my self to death. For with death,
We Are The Future
I bring new life and hope like a spring season, When your love is dying, my undying love is even, Like a chain, I'm the one who holds families together. My love is eternal, it will cause your storms to weather;
The harder the fight, the nearer the victory. I keep chasing my dream, but like a butterfly, It whimsicals, too bad I can't fly. My beauty stays intact, but the world has turned ugly.
Unfortunately, I will not stop, Across Africa, I will travel with this African face, My African pride, And my African story.
All I Want For Christmas
Tick tick, my heart beats together with my watch, Counting down the time, my spirit can't wait for a new year; for new joys and accomplishments. I heard Santa is coming, So I await here on my window panting and anticipating.
He dumped you and left you torpsy-turvy on the ground. But I will pick you up like a diamond soaked in mud. My love shall rain upon your traculant state, My noble heart shall gently touch yours in tatters;
A Minute To Pray
Somewhere out there is an artist like me striving to rise. Somewhere out there is an orphan in tears. Somewhere out there is a hungry widow dying of Aids. Somewhere out there is a heartbroken soul with naked hope.
Aids Caught Me By Surprise
Your pain hides somewhere in my heart, How can I pull you up, when I'm falling down? I'm poised to lose this fight,
Without you, my love, I'm just a fading dream, A fallen star, and a mortal angel.
Unfortunately we will not retire, Across Afrika, we continue to inspire, With this African trophy, Our national achievement;
Burden Of Love
I can't be your lover, Because I can't love you, Without hurting you.
Whither Shall I Wonder
So here I am again in this alley, I'm confused. The weather is bad, My soul is uncomfortable.
A Gun In Life's Hands
I'm like a gun in life's hands. It's holding me by the trigger, I'm about to explode. I am aimed at success, When I hit it, I will make a bang.
If I Find Time, I Will Love You
I'm a hustler, I have to keep moving. Money is my business, yours is loving me. Don't place too much hope on eyeing another eclipse, It may take a lifetime.
Whither Shall I Wonder
So here I am again in this alley,
The weather is bad,
My soul is uncomfortable.
All the tears in the world just rained today.
Whither shall I wonder?
Why am I afraid?
Why am I like this?
Why do I feel like a lost puppy?
