Poem: A Secure Place to Live

Posted in Arts by KANERE on August 21, 2011

It is the crack of the giant
of a giant country waiting to fall apart
the clear street of leer town
shaded by neem and leer trees
lined along its highways

The straight avenues
full of tourists
in their unique attire
the lovely city of the free
of culture and history
adored and recognized world wide
how i long to live in this place
a secure place to live

I will be free like a bird in the air
away from harsh dictatorial laws of man
the Jubba my hope
the symbol of the legacy i left
meandering through the country
like a snake in the trees
hosting every animal and plant in its way
irrigating nature along its course
quenching all intellectuals to its grave yard
how i long to conquer the warfare
a secure place to live.
