Poet Bio

Footprints declared hope
Road-walkers derailed
in pain, plunged themselves
hence this generation sips suicide

All guidelines like paint against walls
All knowledge like waterfall down throats
All left rotten and forgotten
All memory shortened

History matters no more
for they say like stale bread
into rubbish bin it must be dipped
Memory slipped…

The unborn weep in wombs of the future
As the sad song continues to harm posterity
