Konjit Berhane Poems

In the world of Saints

The poor
The homeless
The mother
The father

Born crying
Die smiling
For it is a change

At this time at this moment you are reading this
Some one somewhere is infected by HIV virus

At this time at this moment you were done with the two lines

Mr. Peter & my sister

This poem goes out to Mr. Peter
Who is a friend of my sister

‘m a weirdo
And pseudo
As if ‘m living my primo
Waiting for my secendo

How long is a second
If you are lost in the sea
And you see no land

Dedicated to our dog FoFi
Who died on long ago may his soul RIP

I cried and cried

If roses were with out thorns
Man would have been with out tears
If roses were only yellow
Life would have been shallow

Please spare me your secrets
I am not your best friend
(atleast not yet! !)
‘N I am sorry to break this to you

Trying hard to live having small to give
Is it life?

Don’t know how far to go

Precious life, hers never seemed
Working from dusk till down
For anyone who inquires, with vim
She does every thing and anything in return for nothing

After his death…
Whose death?
The cyclist’s

The planet is a garden
We the people are the plants
God is the gardener
And he didn't want to have one-colored flowers

The liar
With great desire
To have a hair
That resembles mine

If loving him was a crime?
I wonder why she’s spending her time
May be by a cruel judge she is sentenced
Or she made it her lifetime creed

I might fall once …twice
Or even more
‘N you will show me your wicked smile
That I don’t adore

Bored and unemployed in my


The rich wind with golden dust
Has been going wild and fast
As if it has a life that’ll forever last

On the surrounding of the cemetery on our neighborhood
Just to count the sitting old men I once stood
Each and every one of them is above sixty
Who used to love to take a walk in the city

Konjit's work is a wonderful celebration of life. Her optimism, sometimes in the face of real adversity, shines through. Her use of English supercedes the simplistic and presents us with deeply heartfelt portrayals of life.
