    I mean to say this: See how Sam beautifully marries the divine with the human: 'only the one who has experieced human love can authoritatively speak of a divine love', he seems to be saying.

    See how Sam beautifully marries the divine with the human: 'only those who have truly loved' could possibly experience and live the love of God.

  • Jay Kene (4/6/2005 1:01:00 PM)

    This poem seem to attempt the querry: why do people in love feel pain?

    Now you've posted more poems here, Samuel - just to affirm what I said before: you have a beautiful honest direct writing, of course you should comment on your own life, and don't be put off by any lack of 'rating' or comment... you're 'somebody' already, not 'someday'!

  • Samuel Nze (2/11/2005 8:55:00 AM)

    It is a pity that my earlier comment had to be written twice. There was a spelling error in the first; I couldn't live with the thought of having published an error for the world to see without it's being corrected - don't call me finicky!

  • Samuel Nze (2/9/2005 11:29:00 AM)

    i think one may comment on himself - it is allowed in african tradition. if you read my poem 'in a hurry' you can see how i felt about my mother's death; but i have long come to appreciate the fact that life is not all about death. actually life is all about life!

    A big thankyou, Samuel, and I agree - you have a beautiful talent for telling the truth, simple and direct.
    You may have noticed that this site has a 62% audience of Americans, as many fiercely anti-church as pro-church - so don't be surprised if you get some sharp comments - or no comments at all! But I look forward as you do, to reading your 'tomorrow' poems.
    Best wishes. On this site, you can never be an orphan...

    Samuel is one of the most talented writers I have read on this site. He has such a wonderful way of putting things down. It is such a pleasure to read his poems.

Best Poem of samuel nze

I Believe

I believe I shall succeed
I believe I shall be an inspiration
I believe my troubles are temporary
I believe I shall be rich
I believe I shall swell wide
I believe I shall take on the world
I believe I shall speak of wealth
I believe I shall carry sufferers along
I believe I shall show how I made it from nothing
I believe in God
I believe that he is taking me somewhere
I believe that the darkness of today gives way
I believe, I believe, I believe.

Read the full of I Believe

Gloom

Dark heart and a hurt head
There is disappointment in my soul
I groan in tired dissipation
As melancholy hems me in
There seems to be no escape
As foes lock horns with me
Seeking to entrap me in
A web of frustration;
I struggle and whimper
I ask for divine help
God will come to my aid
I only have to trust.
