Rookie (21st, April,1984 / Meru- Kenya)

Yearning for identity


Rankling future I see,
In young poets tommorow,
Mountains of sceptics detracting
the young feet,
In the jungle of literature.

I jot my masterpiece,
To claim my deserved place,
Among village nobel finalists!
Is it piracy? is all i get,
And a puckish grin of
'Go to hell'

Take caution poetry teacher,
Neruda, Nyong'o, Elliot
Cast seeds!
Dont kill heirs morale.
