A Never Ending Verse


When crippled twice in the breath
When lights shine and overturn the dreadlock
When water slippers by metres' grave
The fashion follow and falls, the singer filters
The unrisen hook gets the wrath
And curls again the dreadlock with clays
And the tortured soul gets by and smiles
And awaits the author's take the plea
In the never ending verse

Poet's Notes about The Poem

During the time when I was lingering about in search of the job around towns of Lilongwe and Blantyre. I describe life as a never ending verse in misery. If you are a job seeker you feel like you are forgotten. However, the lord almighty is always in control of our lives. Don't worry, pray for everything.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
