Personal Effects

Posted on Updated on


I write not out of a sense of obligation or duty

Not for the art of poetry nor its beauty

I write for me, a little selfish I know

I write to soothe the real life hurts of my tested soul

To keep my brewing emotions still, I know y’all wonderful people

But it sounds so forced whenever you say you know how I feel

Trust me, you don’t

But then again, I might be wrong

I’m a squirrely character absorbed by this self-indulgent melancholy

And if you really think about it, it’s a plea for help tied with a bow of green folly

Long story, short version

One thing remains certain;

This time I need more than just a favour

I need God now more than ever
