A poem about everything by Siphiwe Hlongwane

Poem

When anxiety takes over my body
Turning it into its own little colony
Engulfed by senseless fear
Of harmless demons
When depression puts my sanity under
A lockdown of darkness
Cutting the pathways of my will
To breathe
And I feel my whole being getting lost
In a thick fog of confusion
When my prayers lose their voice
From screaming salvation
To a god who disowns the “weak”
And my tears cannot cry anymore
I turn to you poetry
To cover my bones
With the tender flesh of your words
To cut the rope of my end
Away from my neck
I turn to you to paint pictures of life
On the abandoned walls of my spirit
When my heart is tired of beating
In bit and pieces of half a life
I write for it
A poem about everything.
