Betrayal - Poem by Faraj Nyandiko

I left and never missed home,
Anger forced me to be all alone
In a desert brimful of pain.

I cried a lake full
And even wished I would die
This young and youthful,
Or never had been born.

Every time I wondered why
He had to make me cry
Without feeling shy.

I wished she would be near
To witness how her half
Betrays her innocent I,
Lovely sweet mama.
