Bound In Chain - Poem by Ugoh Ifeanyi

Standind in the valley of wreck,
Sitting under the cidar canopy,
Mind so troubled,
Thoughts, of an unseen world,
An unexpected void i happen to be lost in.


My mind quackes,
My body is shrivelled
up,
Dances to the tune of 'drummer heart',
Lonely and hapless,
Like a prisoner i groan.


Wishes for death,
Yet afraid to die,
Death cometh;
With its icy hand, it threatens,
Yet i hid from it.


Wandering in
solitude,
Scotched bare by the fiery rays,
Sick with sickness of the mind,
My eyes are dry,
The river's source are emptied.


My knowledge wastes,
My intellect left for vultures,
Science gives way for burden,
My hands and feet chained,
Trouble, my jailer..


My riches vanishes,
Friends has deserted me,
Am like a weed to my 'amis',
Deserted in solitude,
Poverty my comforter.
