Red River

Things fall apart
An exaggeration
not Achebe’s book
What I mean to say is
When I hear Mother Nature’s
soundless steps
I’m no longer at ease
I get irritated
In short,
an endless string of emotions
stirs my entire being
For few days
I’m a different person
With no proper control
of my emotions
From the
Unsmiling face
Strained movements
Stiff steps
you can tell
the pain has started
through the open gates
the Red river
