Tongue Twisted - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

my two- faced tongue rammed a fist in my gut today

got away from me and I never stood a chance

somehow what I meant to say didn’t quite make the cut

my eyes huge bulges hang outside their sockets

I am carefully paraphrasing and retracing my steps to no avail

now mired in the dark bog of my tongue admissions

I have only to apologize and hope it is enough

    It needs courage, guts and conviction to introspect and come out with something self defeating. This is a beautiful poem though, sprinkled with pain all over. Be hopeful.
