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 ...

Lonely Souls

Lost in thought they are faraway, taking a trip to a world of their own.
Willingly they grow numb to our world laddened with problems.
They believe they can live forever, but their life is fading away.
They take more of their death believing they are living.

[Hata Bildir]
