Best Poem of tochukwu nwankpa


Departing is such a sweet sorrow
From dunghills and ghettos
My true life i leave behind
Tears bite my eyes but i wont cry
The anguish of joy is my lot

Like a traveller i trode this unending journey
With my burdens i carry like a donkey
I have seen the beauty of loneliness
And the sadness of companionship
Fantasy is an opium i crave for
Wandering in this wilderness
Like the Israelites and asking
Questions like the pharisees and sadducees

I shall depart nevertheless
To find a land filled with happiness
With the splendor that nature ...

The Rolling Milestone

In our quest for fame
We loose sight of how we came
Though we were formerly lame
And looking for who to blame
Problems became solutions
And creativity came by intuition

Men persevered to be preserved
The milestone of conquerors

[Hata Bildir]
