Treasure Island

Faraj Nyandiko


Betrayal


I left and never missed home,
Anger forced me to be all alone
In a desert brimful of pain.

I cried a lake full,
And even wished I would die,
This young and youthful
Or never had been born.

Every time I wondered why
He had to make me cry,
And never felt shy.

I wished she would be near,
To witness how her half
Betrays her innocent I.
Lovely sweet mama.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
