Shoulder To Lean On - Poem by Onalethuso Petruss Ntema

since we all need a shoulder to lean on
i lean on any shoulder on me
i kneel on many like me
but i see a storm over me
i feel the waves over me
the great polar winds over me
might have mistaken-ed over me
but a mystery of unbeknownst
and fantasy have purported my brains
the pain so nice to purpose my veins
to run through a blood of taste
when life odds itself from waste
the exit is to die
that is how i never ask why
because i am ready to die
when no shoulder on me
can not carry me (any further)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

self assertiveness is key. we do need other people to help us through but ask yourself a question why and how will we survive without them or when they are no where any where else near us but the situation does?
