I Feel Like Crying - Poem by samuel nze

I feel like crying
When I remember the loss
The Tsunami disaster
That shook our hearts
I feel like crying when I
See the tears fall down
A victim's cheek
Feel her wish it never happened
I think of my own poverty
I shudder at the depravity
And mediocrity that is Africa
I am saddened by the greed
Of leaders who
Instead of seeking to save the lost
Continue to waste
What is left.
