LONELINESS By Aaminah Qasim Oniwarere
When I was asked about loneliness.
I made it clear that it’s a bastard.
I didn’t forget to mention that it comes unaware.
It penetrates the mind so deep
That it causes it to tremble.
I tell you, Loneliness is a bastard!
There is always an urgent need to send it into exile.
A pressing need to dissociate completely from it.
The urge for it’s opposite.
The sources of companionship
Comes flashing in colours of rainbow.
Choose within these colours
Those who will mention you in odds.
Liberating you from everlasting sadness.
Worse than loneliness.
Loneliness, I tell you.
Will make or Mar you.
Through your crave for
Pen Roll. (Aaminah Qasim. O.)
