A poem by Isaac Bokaba

content most times
how the feeling feels
intent into rhymes
remedy without pills

worries now and then
raging fear couples doubt
dummies due to them
nearer truth a heart caged

eyes a handy cam’
stories captured to share
always knew i can
dreams made me aware

warmed up the frozen mind
to reap the fruit of thought
african child one of a kind
respect the ones who taught

lessons like candles brighten
versions methods galore
given this paper and a pen
write to settle the score.
