Written on 19th B'day

19 years ago
in my ma's womb i lay
the darkness suffocating me
its walls seem to say
you are a prisoner
i kicked and i pushed
and struggled in vain
with her each moan of pain
i smiled
i came out at last
covered with bloody waste
only the cage is bigger
am still a prisoner
the first breath
of life
was a cry
of anguish
echo-ing still
all over

poverty & richness

when the layers and layers
i wrap myself around with
rob the richness buried inside
from sharing, expressing
touching the world
when the desolate
barren poverty outside
cant seep inside
change to something beautiful
touched by that
faint little glow
deep inside

your words--2

your words
incessant rain drops
making wet translucent patches
on the veil
glimpses of
beautiful shadows
of hidden silence
waiting for the waltz
rain drops turn midnight mist
as music plays
still wraping the silence
buried deep within

mushroom at a cemetery


safely buried

6 feet under

drugs, abuse and sex


some little softness

burnt to ashes

on which dogs roll

around funeral pyres


naked innocence

freshly bathed

left for vultures

on the mute towers

of indefference




sparkling eyes

hold back

hungry hands

reaching for

the spat chewing gum



the red flowers

in the hand

wither in shame
