POEM 324


BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.



Having it all...
Was the sweetest part of my life ;
Well, radiant smiles and riches
Was all everyone ever wanted
And I had them all.

One single night, just after dusk ;
I lost it all to the little scary ghosts of night
And they captured me, well took me captive
Now all that is left of me-
Just a number, a valueless digit...

Yes, that's what they all call me ;
I no longer see the sun, that glows
Every morning to make the earth glow ;
With me everything is dim, dark and scary-
Scarier than the tombs in nights...
Who knew I'f end up here ?

I always fetch them, long and lovely ;
Memories from my past,
They existed, yes, now they make me smile
Foolishly and slap my very self,
Because I took them for granted.

My stars just turned crimson,
The moon just went into hiding-
Nothing shines light around anymore ;
The flowers have withered,
Because they never see sunlight...
It's all turned upside down, dark and scary
Right now: Nothing just adds up.

Beautiful and dark at the same time. Hope that fortune finds the person in this poem.
