Okoronkwo Jonathan Jackson

(31/12/1987 / Ebonyi State Nigeria)

A River of Tears


Unstoppable flow-
Raining like a shower to
Water the vegetation of my cheeks:
Planted in grief,
Awaiting the sorrowfull harvest to manifest.

Shed on the cast of angst,
In a mournful jubilation
Feeling the ire of bliss-
On the pasture of regret,
Begging for mercy.

Uheard of the loud weeping
Wailing in tears and wears,
Yet beating upon the rock
To metamophorse in the akin of sorrow
Chanting a ballad of anguish.

It's the river of tears I shed.
My heart so bitter, I dare not tell.
My joy gone and my happiness stolen.
Begging for a bliss from heaven
To cast her wind of consolation
Upon my wetted heart.
