Liberty - Poem by Masharia kanyari

Fear is my curse
Greed is my sin
Wisdom my lover
success my sibling


If silence is golden,
and love is platinum
Then power is priceless
Thus success is my mistress


My woman was my right hand
but while I was deeply attached
I had her amputated
She was ruining my act
so I quit her like a bad habit


Let it be known
There is only one of my kind
The only one there ever will be
which is why I remain unscathed
by societal scrutiny
I dance to the beat of my drum
Thus only God can judge me
