Benson Don Poems
Blind Love Gains His Sight
Blind love gains his sight. All wrongs now he sees. Anything for love, turns some 'cus love's tiny rope no longer seems strong.
With every step my strides are weakened, my heart is weighed down 'cus my folks' burden causes it aches.
Sonnet To The Young
A lifestyle the status quo has spelt out, to it you myopically conform although it is what you are really not, you don't mind as long as, it is the norm. You're carried away by celebrities,
They exist in the spiritual, perceived in the physical. They carry various messages in the language you understand
Shouts at your arrival in reverence to your person. So high your arms soar, even beyond your shoulders have risen.
Had a very tedious day: Queued up for ample time To get a bus home With my very last card.
He said proudly, "ain't you and you ain't me" Building a shelter
They say, "no pain no gain". No dispute. We gave our best, that was our input. It began in a flash, I mean the journey.
Pond Full Of Your Flesh
After severe thinking, your thoughts confuse you 'cus in it there seems nothing new.
Beauty you epitomize looks it goes beyond from the inside it oozes precious it is like diamond.
You came and lived your live. As a neccessary but not compulsory part of your lives you brought us
Didn't I come because of you? Isn't my life suppose to revolve around you?
You came and lived your live.
As a neccessary but not compulsory
part of your lives
you brought us
into this ball of obscurity.
Instead of guiding us
to run the race of life
you want to run for us.
