Harcourt Noble Poems
In A Hopeless Place
I was abandoned, I was thrown away In my house i was a visitor In my family I was a stranger In my Land i was an outcast
Feelings Of Sparta
My tears makes the Nile My urine so vile My face without a smile Just because of Sparta
I Was Born Asleep
I was born asleep Because i was born when the day was dark I was born when there no moon And when the sun has lost its glory
My admiration cuts across my resolution And luck became my portion When i made my decision The Lord gave me an ambition
Tribute To Nelson Mandela By African Stu...
Who can love Peace like you? who can show peace like you? Who can tell peace like you? Who can find peace like you?
Patience, Purity and Truth Can never be said from the Lion's Heart Whose determination is to devour Any Lamb, Goat, Antelope or troubling Tiger
Virgin(S) Of The Seas
Too many of our years, we stay here Living our life not to the fullest, like we belong here Staying and seeing men, this is no fair They come and go but never look well
The Choice Is Mine
The Choice is Mine At infant, there were fights As a teen, there were challenges
My Father's Daughter
I grew up in my father's house Being nurtured with my father's advice To grow up and marry one wife So as to live the fullest of life
Living life like some peaceful toad We were sold without being told We were never informed So in the new home were deformed
See how you are, so bold! Of your wickedness, oh! Cold In my ears you sing In my body you sting
A Man Of Character
A man of character Is a man of peace Not addicted to taking bribes But built in this
I Was Born Asleep
I was born asleep
Because i was born when the day was dark
I was born when there no moon
And when the sun has lost its glory
I grew up in the room
When it was day
I was locked up
When it was night
I was only permitted to go out and see the moon
