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 ...

Read the full of Departing


Like a tranquilizer it weakens man
It could render you immobile.
Like a scorpion sting it pierces my skin.
Will i bask in the reality of uncertainty.
Where men go and contemplate on their return.
It makes giants fragile and their desire
To conquer are conquered.

Like missiles from Iraq
