The Barren Sea - Poem by Sulaiman Alimat Taiwo
How long shall I wallow in fears?
Alone in the heart of the barren sea
For my eyes cry to see my home in the quiet nest
From the saint of memories, my heart filled with empty hopes
Going blind to ignore my own agony
Will I turn deaf before I hear my own cry?
My belly is an evidence of a fading strength
How long more in this cage of solitude?
The sea of hope soon drying off
Thirsty amidst river, the sea is barren
How long shall I quench my thirst with hope?
Hope soon lost to wish, on the barren sea I ride
