From this corner of the Globe where I am bred
I take a glimpse of this amazing nature's bed,
Across the climes stretching all round,
And I know in my heart, so much I have found
To enrich my world, my own still world.
Evance Ombaka Poems
Upon My Epitaph
Neath this mound of swarthy earth Lies twined with roots and stones, The vanity of my flesh and bones. Say what you may of my life's worth,
I Know How It Feels
when the distance is long and the will is no more strong. The road seems just wrong.
For the world I wear a robe and a mask upon my countenance I am not what i seem with the laurel upon my head Within is a covert identity, a fettered and yoked slave serving the despot within,
A Bossom Friend
I did much less than I was in need Because I had by me a friend in deed Until upon his door, not in jest He left a note that said it all
Once the thief of time stealthily came into my home,
Sneaked my dreams and promises out into the world (to roam) .
Now I am armed with a keen sword (I did yesterday borrow) ,
And I swear, I will slay the thief first thing tomorrow.
