Poems by Ugwu Leonard Elvis
WHERE ARE WE
To hell I say tot his killing, trampling and quake of human nature.
To accept this defeat implies the inscription of torture
To educate, to live and to be intelligent
To kill the useless flash of learning through implementation of tyranny.
Life to its fullness I romance, even when these sweet bitter knowledge is impacted not,
Joy I call, joy they called for, if the generations past is asked
Never did they see the four walls of an institution but to the fullest their life embraces
Today we live this sweet home without a desert head, a white hair and weary skin,
Because our home was called for work, this home for work not for luck,
Work, work, they work for the family for the home and for their stronger generation.
This was done only for your disgrale
Would they embrace today?
They worked for million miles
Today we sit on a fresh air while our robot takes us to our shell
Stronger they are when they worked in the farm
Today how many can I see touch a hoe, all goes for a bulldozer?
Our generation our generation
Acquisition lacks back I call, their voice vibrates
My little ear
“Where Are We”
Oh human! Oh human! To what sketch would you be enslaved
This evil that eats our flesh burns the wood and sends us to doom
I speak today; can you see me in a blink?
Subject we are to the eater of raw meat.
At my arrival you jubilated
Because the opportunity is yours to act
You never seek for opinion
I believe all man be drowned, for this deep river is a friend of no one
Regret is mine to be a guest here
For this untimely creature eats the earth without ethics
You cursed son of the dust
Who shall not partake in the glory of death?
WHEN I WRITE
When I cast my mind down
I fight to gain focus which would never loss till dawn
My pen becomes jealous of what it produces
I love to escort my mind whenever it goes and make sun it never refuses.
But a common swing of a door, would be like a contender
Oh! I feel like eliminating the offender
Because a construction has been ruined
If I had a gun, I would pierce it in his head and blow off his brain. For against me he has sinned
Putting your brain down is not child’s play
When people see me in that state I turn to a prey
Then they tend to distrust most
Don’t worry when I see such again only heaven can not forgive me in this coast.
Please allow our champions to show us the light
Unworthy men stay off and ladies play cool because it’s night
Let’s see and bring forth to the world.
If you fee I am wrong don’t do it by your word.
