The Battle Is Over - Poem by Abubakar Ahmed Imam

The battle is over
The dust has settled
Together we toil
in the void of a collosal loss

We meet again
On the narrow path of life
But shy away
From the prob of each other's eyes

The words
we unleashed
lacerate our hearts
Like poisonous arrows

The battle is over
The dust has settled
But subtly we die
Of this futile battle with our conscience.
