The Thinker

‘I huddled towards the written word,
and forced the theories to circumvent in my head,
Murdered my ways to a family,
and lost the pearls deep beneath the ocean floor…

Lost in the weight of words,
and the pressure of perception,
i opened the gates to wisdom,
just to close the doors to love…

Scores of years have now passed,
unmatched,unjust,
a part of me lost,a part of me won,
a thousand ambassadors of a memory,
wasted by the cut…

Science took me to sacred chambers,
where the colours had discoloured,
where people were just flesh and bone,
the orator eulogised in the same old tone,
and yet my mind escaped through…..

Far away from the distant laughter,
far away from the vicious cries,
seldom have i opened the crust,
to embellish the core of my senses and skin…

Who are these peolple that dig out their souls,
what are these structures that hold them,
But lost in a relativity in the womb,
of the dimensions,
What is the government,
but a pitfall in man’s machinery,
a way to rust out the life of the city,
and then cry a sorrowful song of pity,
then media to insentify our wounds,
till time heals them…..

I was too afraid too look back,
too pragmatic to prosper,
stuck in this chasm of correction and mistakes,
what is it then,
my identity??

    Atiyo,
    these two poems on identity are very enthralling and will support much reading.
    “Lost in the weight of words,
    and the pressure of perception,” – just 2 of many great lines.
    Seeking clarity amidst the shifting sands of ourselves which are moved, eroded, reformed by waves and currents of air and water…
