15 Years Under House Arrest - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

15 years under house arrest,
I am now free to write out my mind!
For the muse of this love is like the suffereing masses of this world.

They came and they locked me up,
Thinking that they've silenced me forever;
But i am now free at last! !
Yes, free from the hands of the workers of evil;
And i realyy know what i went through.

With tears, toil and pain;
This was like the story of 'Aung San Suu Kyi' of Myanmar! !
But the heavens opened the windows and poured down heavy rainfall,
There and then i gained my joy to write this poem.

Thanks to my mother who gave me much hope,
But peace to my father who was no there!
Because he was busy somewhere else;
And to my siblings i say a big thank you! !

The cruel of mankind,
Of my experiences under house arrest;
But i am now free to write out my mind,
Because a well planted seed will surely grow out no matter what!
