Mystery Thief

Poem by samuel nze

Lover of the dark
You mystery thief
Are you really
A brother of mine?
They say you are
A human being
But your actions ask
Where is your heart?
Did you suckle
At your mother's breast
Six months at least
After the cord was buried?
When then did you
Break Society's hold
And become thus
A renegade?
I know your mother
Back in the village
Shall I tell her
That I have seen you?
