Is This Love I Thought Of? - Poem by Paul Mwenelupembe

Bruised, mocked and finished, the day was
Brocken and wily I lied on the palm mat
At the climax disease deadly infused
This alittle child and carried another burden?
The loving man, like a king birds he was
And formally he and she name was rose
Leaking the skyline he belched and smeared
Then behind he staggered and I with hoes overhead
Down the stream teenager, along motherhood
Left opener of minds at fourneen, I did to love
If love was aman, is this love I thought of?
There coming from mapped soils achild and the burdened ahead
The way home we trod with him rat- tut- rockers
Quick! Quick! The animal could say and sped the marker
But with a burden then I took such a chameleon style
The hungry leopard, the bully lion grabbed and roared
As a mother resisted and in the lake of blood I washed my clothes
So is this love I thought of?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Women are the victims of the word love. As it is in this poem, a woman left school at fourteen just for love. She got married and hard her first child, when that child turn 2 years she was pregnant again. Her husband started misbehaving. She started beating her, talking abusive words and the like. She also begun to compared the way her husband was before, he was loving, caring.... everything.
And later she realized that that was not the way she expected from her husband. A lesson to all girls who are in school that they should not be cheated by getting married early and leave the school for good. The word love is deadly! ! !
