POEMS

A penurious life.

Published

Admiring the mouth-watering menu,

My throat craving for a cold beer.

Searching my pockets,

A budget for a loaf of bread is the reality.

I then understand why,

A penurious life.

POEMS

The bitterness of bombs

Published

on

I wonder why I wonder why?

I grew up in terror

Advertisements

And I met a terrible error

My life was and is still shattered

And my society scattered

Advertisements

I wonder why, I wonder why?

The first bomb got me on the top of the hill

But I had to face it with courage and stay still

A couple of bodies laid like flies

And all I could hear were the cries

I wonder why, I wonder why?

I saw young lads taking the last breathe by my side

To survive I had to dive in no river in order to subside

 The ground was tensed and it couldn’t hold me anymore

And my senses, my throat and my heart were all bitter and sore

I wonder why, I wonder why?

I fled the scene leaving the dead alone and I felt the shame

But who was to be held accountable and who was to be blame

I will live to tell my own story as a single narration

But the history has it all and the full documentation

POEMS

They say ‘Technology Empowerment’

Published

on

They said internet is the game, we ululated.

E-learning became a thing,

Advertisements

Only to be hit with abstract concepts.

Electricity on a mission to leave us in dilemma.

Wondering if I should empower Technology.

Advertisements

The future is in the computer, they say.

The future is in technology, they say.

What kind of future?

What kind of life?

When we have screens but no family.

We have online classes but

No connections with friends.

Online shopping has become a success.

Online tickets progressing.

E-learning providing heavy crosses to carry.

Is this the student-centered approach?

Student-centered without students.

Technology knocks us out.

Big blue button or big black screens,

We struggle alone.

Teachers teach only names on screens.

Where is the connection?

Where is you and me?

Sitting as a group thinking,

Why advocate for empowerment?
