Treasure Island

Musa Ndhlovu

(1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)

He Went On None Stop


Cloudy and less wind
He laughed till the end.
With no power to run away,
I had to wait till he goes away.
My actions were loud to make him happy.
Even to the point of hate, he was not sad
Not even close, not even a little bit.
The pleasure of great Joy, made
Me to end up tossing the shame
To undefined excitement from within.
To stare could not make him stop,
Even thought the second option was a step
To his terrible, trembling threat.
Complaining about the pain equally
Made him to laugh out loudly.
With no help, I moved away and
Only to find out where I went
He was there. Strangers not knowing
His fear, could not hesitate joining
His melody of laughter caused by my actions.
Confirmation: I do not regret what I
Did, for I was following the instructions I
Was to bow to. Pride ran away and
Left me with a dark feeling in the light.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
