Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!


have i lost it
or am i loss
for words.....
to be speechless
while searching
for a thought
is like losing
your place
in broad daylight
as i struggle
to make sense
my mind goes back
from when
i first began to write
this is my passion
so never long before the
words that flow
find their way
from my soul
to my mind
to paper
and that's when
i know
this is how
i express myself
the easiest way
to pass on
what sometimes
i can not say
face to face
never meaning
any harm
or wanting to give
reason for alarm
just trying to get
a point across
but will the reader understand
or is it all still a loss
