I SEE NO TOMORROW (by JOSHUA OMENGA)
I see no tomorrow
Behind this wall of looming absence
Only the darkness of inexistence
Beckoning, the still unspoken words
The unexpressed invitation
Now rings louder than express summons
Of pleasures unexperienced
Of duties awaiting –
On whose shoulder shall they lie
These many undelegable affairs?
Shall I, offspring of many hands,
The many desires of my makers,
Leave unexpressed the yearnings in my soul,
Leave unsaid the love in my heart?
