A cry in predicament written 7th July 2010 by Jokpeme Joseph Omode
Life has left me with nothing to rejoice but tears
Over untold sufferings and pains
And I am like a filthy rag
That is rejected and mocked by all.
The pains and limitations seem so familiar;
That when I go rushing like the wind for exams,
Hoping to come back with flying colours of success
But so disappointing when the cloud cover me up
With tears and sorrow when I fail.
The more I strive for success,
The more answer I hear of disappointment.
This became a normal and familiar occurrence
That everyone thinks nothing will come out of me,
That I will fail continually and never rise.
Life seem unfair when I want something so much
And always elude me.
Day and night, I weep;
Like those who have no future,
Like those who have no light,
Like those in perpetual darkness of evil influence,
Like those who will never arrive.
Rejoice not with me oh my enemies!
For when I fall, I shall arise;
When I am scared, alone and depressed,
I shall be rescued;
And when I sit in darkness and when horror overcome me
And when I am gripped with fear and doubt,
The Lord shall be a light to my path.
My tongue is like the pen of a book writer,
My heart sober as my eyes rush out waters of unending tears.
I wish I have the power to take away suffering,
I wish I can take it out of existence,
I wish I could heal the world,
I wish I can take away my predicaments,
Oh how I wish I can put an end;
I would put an end and put to shame
The perpetuators and the problems
And I would rejoice and celebrate
Like a shepherd who found a lost sheep.
