"Thoughts" By Nonso Anyanwu
Thoughts in times of tyranny
Keep awakening my jaundiced eyes
Whispering into them, the realities I never knew
Thoughts, guild me into a future
With glittering smiles and wishes
Yet, the beginning of my manhood
O! Thoughts of many colours
Paint me into a favourable favour
For every night is a revelation of deceit
So tragic is the earth's menu:
Unbleeded wounds, uncried deaths
Yet, many teary eyes stare up to Heaven
Our fears legalises our silence
In times of tyranny, O Thoughts!
Be the architect of my unbowed head
Even when furiously bleeding
Thoughts! I pray you,
Be the anchor at my fall
Lead me up, let me drive and soar!
For the world is a lament of victims...
