Treasure Island

Emmanuel Arunee Mwanza


Life Anew


Eyes popping out of the sockets
They even feel the pains of the frictions of their bones
And yet daily, rest is denied to them by the wicked afflictions
Children grow up with begging as their métier
Adults look confident in front of their children in pretense, all is not well
In spite all this, the world sees it, little help though
Parents are trying, but live in their demure
A deadly disease has struck
One that only emerge and it’s an outbreak same time
Only them know how beautiful, they have been once
Look at them, their weights so far below of fashion models’
Call them walking skeletons if you like, they did not ask for it
Greedy has stolen their everything
Wars have made their lands useless for agriculture, no food
Dead are gone days, they planted seeds,
Now, bullets are buried in their bodies, they are too poor to be heard
Harvest is now deaths and numerous diseases
Welcome them, don’t despise them; they want life anew
