Poetry is oxygen that the world desperately needs to exist and it paints a picture of the happy and not too happy moments of life. The ink has to be wet so we can tell a vivid story of life.

Uche Nwanze Poems
Eight minutes forty six seconds, all it took for my tomorrow to be stolen.
Eight minutes forty six seconds, because of the colour of my skin.
Eight minutes forty six seconds, if only I were White.
I speak of a people, forlorn yet jocund.
I speak of a nation, innumerable like the stars in the galaxy.
I speak of a people, gifted by Mother nature, cursed by the gods.
After the Rain comes Sunshine.
After the Night comes Dawn.
After Darkness comes Light.
She strikes fear, brave hearts perspire.
Catching souls in her clutches of death.
Sweeping through the terrestrial plane, an avalanche of sorrow.
Dreadful dreadlocks like a Nazarite with sturdy arms.
Hell has been let loose, the gates of Hades is broken and the fiendish underlings are unleashed on our world.
Patience is a word that does not exist in their lexicon.
The thing before my own eyes are FACELESS masquerades.
The country is going cashLESS.
Girls are going topLESS.
My people are becoming hopeLESS.
Corruption has beaten us helpLESS.
Peace has been rendered homeLESS.
Our youths are becoming useLESS.
Hunger has driven us senseLESS.
Problems are becoming countLESS.
