Abduction

Life has changed

Now I am shamed

I’m black and blue

Sore and abused

No one cares

Would never dare

Taken from home

Now unknown

Forgotten me

Lost, maybe

Guess will not know

Which way to go

No way out

No shadow of a doubt

Burn

.

I hope you suffer

For what you’ve done

You’ve ruined my life

Before it’s begun

And for what this act?

To mark me for life?

Am I not good enough?

To be someone’s wife?

You’re a coward

You burned my face

You deformed me

Turned my skin to waste

I hope you rot

And you feel guilt inside

I will recover

I will live my life

Current affairs · depression

Misery

In a cage all alone

Cannot move or even roam

Like a dog wandering round

Quiet now, not a sound

Beaten blue, bats and fists

No protection, never missed

So hungry, starving here

Darkness frightening, feeding fear

Why this abuse, what have I done

They’re sniggering, having fun

Just want it to end, set me free

End this pain, this misery.

Poor boy

.

Youths in the street, jostling all together

They laugh, they joke, hoodies any weather.

Phones out watching videos they have made

A boy, the last victim whom they had preyed.

Their last attack, fatal, a poor young boy

A pack, circled, to see blood spilt oh joy.

Grounded surrounded, begging for some help

Calling for mum, he cannot help himself.

His eyes, such fear, knowing he’s gonna die

The last, final gasp, as life leaves his eyes.

Be famous

.

Want to be noticed

Crave attention

A better life

Some affection

.

Try everything

Everything more

Sell your body

Become a whore

.

Exhaust yourself

Self esteem expired

Final moments

It’ll come to the wire

.

We’re all poets, writers

Authors, the like

All fighting for fame

To improve our life

.

Kill to be famous?

Sell your soul?

Cheat, take or steal?

Ride the black hole?

.

Sure, yes you would

You’d do what you can

To be famous, why not?

You gotta be the man

Nigeria’s addiction

.

The sweet stuff

Addicting

Just a taste

Euphoria within

.

School kids

One try and they’re hooked

These children

Should be reading books

.

If you’re in rehab

They chain you to the floor

This is meant to stop you

From wanting to take more

.

In the nightclubs

In the streets

Dealers sell it

A strawberry treat

.

Cartons flood in

Into the wrong hands

Bad people feeding greed

Selling to the gangs

.

Highly addictive

Taken in excess

Euphoric high

Mind in a mess

.

Kidney damage, seizures

Psychosis, delusions too

Hallucinations, schizophrenia

It does this to you

.

Whether you’re rich or poor

Educated or not

Avoid it, don’t start

Use all the will power you’ve got.

Illiterate

.

I am a dunce

If you want to call it that

I cannot read or write

Why I have the dunce’s hat

.

I’m different, maybe

If you like

I’ll have to get through it

I’ll have to fight

.

Exams, well I failed

Highest I got was a C

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough

No qualifications for me

.

The day my son noticed

Mum read better than me

The day I revealed

This flaw I had in me

.

You see, I was not stupid, nor lazy

No, it wasn’t the case

But the kids would laugh

It was out of place

.

Dyslexia, disabilities,

Names that we hear

Spelling, grammar, hell

These are words that I fear

.

I may be different

It doesn’t mean I cannot succeed

I am proud to be me

Mark my words, take heed

Run for cover

.

What is that noise?

Choppers on approach

Panic stricken

Take cover like a roach

.

Overhead now,

hovering still

That dirty beast

Contemplating the kill

.

There it goes

That dark heavy mass

See it plummet to the ground

What a blast!

.

It leaves its chaos

As it flies away

Screams, yelling

Where the kids normally play

.

Deafening numbness

Everything so loud

Smell of chlorine

Poisonous cloud

.

People stumbling

Gasping for air

Vomiting violently

People scared

.

I cannot breath

Coughing uncontrollably

Grating at my eyes

Collapsing fatally….
