TIME TRAVELS WITH ME
Sitting still on the shore of life
As cascades of thoughts floods my mind
Reminding me how I travelled
And sailed ashore by tide of time.
Deep the treasures of years I sank
Reminiscing those historic days
When I danced to the tune of success
Massaging my crying heart with soothing balm.
I remember when time took me for a trip
A trip to the inhuman world where blood spattered
And flooded the streets of my home
Beclouding the sky with smoke of grief.
I remember those days when sky weeped
Not of rain but with tears of sadness
When our homes was charred to ashes
Ending our life as pieces and fragments.
I remember the days when we were hunted
With arrows and guns instilling terror in our lives
I remember those nights that never spells peace
That even the moon and stars hide in fears.
As I visit the memory lane, I remember
Of the poems we wrote lulling to bed our loved ones
Of the lines we screeched with our blunt pens
Planting a seed of hope in their hearts.
