What Is Your Nightmare? - Poem by Lawrence s. Makola

What tortures you?
Your torture is the money you stole from your granny
When ever you think of it the world trembles around you
For you were told that she bewitched you
And all your failures you think were caused by her...
Is that your nightmare?

What makes you suffer?
Remember the man you butchered alive
The girl you forced to commit abortion
The five year girl you rape while under your care
And the friend you betrayed while stealing
Is that your nightmare?

What is your agony?
The reality that you failed to commit to your family
Your children broaght up by your sisters
Your two boys earning some fortune while despising you
Your wife gone with another man
The house you once called home just a hip of rubbles
Is that your nightmare?

What is your nightmare?
That you didn’t die but you wanted to?
Is because you feel sorry for yourself
Or you regret you ever lived
Or you curse the day you were born
Is that your nightmare?
