I Need A Doctor - Poem by Okoronkwo Jonathan Jackson
This is a high fever I must say
This is no joke and no play
This disease I know not it's root
And the destiny thereof I cannot unroot
What's wrong with me?
Why the rogue of my heart
Vices all I see
My spirit torn apart
That I don't even know where I'm heading to.
Take me to the hospital
Nurses are too beautiful to handle my case
For they in their beautiful petal
Will worsen my state
When I throw upon them a gaze.
I need no female doctor
I am my own director
Yet I know that this is a bad cantor
For there is something I need to be delivered from.
I am drunk
To the point I sunk
So deep like a punk
That I can no longer catch a breath
To relieve me of these troubles
My heart is rotten
My kidney is spoilt
My liver is expired
My brain malfunctions
I no longer think aright
This is a sigh of a million tears
The burdens of death greatly bears
Lost in the fears
Of addiction to no prediction of what next...
I have never felt this way before.
I was a strong mind of heart
But what suddenly went wrong that I became this soft?
I really need to be attended to,
I call for deliverance
In fact I need a Priest
