Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
I want to live.
Dark pitfalls all about me
Close their black depths where'er my wanderings lead;
My feet are guided by an unseen force
O'er paths I would avoid for strangely treacherous ways.
I want to see.
Stark drama all about me
Finds no respondent note within the chaos of my soul;
My eyes are drawn by some magnetic power
To a mirage of weird ethereal pictures.
Written by Alvira Hazzard (1899-1953)
