The Prey of Insanity

0
by Omolola Sanusi
I am a shadow of the present
that lives in the future
I sing dirges of hapiness     
I am looking for the sun of peace
that may never shine
my dreams are gagged
and my visions are dimmed
 
I wander round strangled paths
and I hug the darkness of shame
I marvel at my hopelessness, helplessness
i have seen the tree that breeds anarchy and doom
yes, I saw the volcano of lawlessness
erupting the lava of inhumanity
 
I am a living dead
that may soon become the prey
to the vultures of insanity!
