Cry Of A Heart - Poem by Mpho Wordsworth Leteng

Fragments of my fractured heart falling apart at the seams;
i crawl towards the fading light,
in my mind logically interweaved thoughts of my parents lost identity
a false believe they held from the craddle to the grave
i uncover stories they never heard
for fortune favors only the brave

i've seen better heads on nickel beers!
she told me what i do is a leap in the dark,
but i can't rear a false identity
within my heart resides pain big around as a molasses barrel
in my mind thoughts and ideas quarrel
but accepting that this is who i am will be a theory for the lost


Poet's Notes about The Poem

when he grew up he began fighting for his true identity/it is indeed very difficult to accept that you are a lie.this poem is dedicated to all those who had been lied to about the identity, fight hard for your true identity

    The true evidence of a heart speaking with its loud mouth and procraying the silent significance of it role on emotions, I really adore this write brother, it reflects a poem wrote on feelings with indeed emotions flowing down the pen to the paper, keep it up mate
