The World I Live - Poem by kelvin nwanji

I sleep in the shades called darkness,
In the hollowness of existence
Where every now petrifies me
And hopes are only impossible dreams.

I walk in the illusion called life,
Breathe the scent of poison called air.
Tomorrow doesn't wait for many
Even when today shuns all fear

I swim in the ocean of nothingness,
Where infinite knowledge and strength wrath.
Abundant wealth is never enough,
To bribe, when death's call comes.

I live in an open prison,
Birth is death sentence,
No appeal, no defense,
Freedom is only gotten in the afterlife.
