Snake like venom

Snake like venom

A Poem by Lehlohonolo Lichaba

My eye imprison my tear to hide my fear
Vocal cords on mute ,strings hardened like spear
The loneliness as eyes can hear what ears can't see
The only nest to hide is plain sight no refuge for creatures like me.
The sun is unkind we friends to the moon we live in darkness
We burn the ice expose lies harness the truth in this mist of madness.
Now sign me a gospel, and sketch me a prayer
As I take refuge and comfort in the unknown as the known can strip off trust and expose you to the hash reality
Mankind is cruel , devour your honesty strip you naked and feed you to this world's brutality.
dictators bleed words of hate and watch the blood of our brothers stain the streets,
Dick tackers breed blurred fantasies and watch families crumble to ruins then split.
The truth is a mystery hidden like affairs locked behind close doors like honesty was a felon.
You sit and listen and you can clearly hear whispers behind the shades , ignore the signs this world will cut you open if you lucky enough to escape its venom.

like exploring and experimenting, I believe that even though there is a saying that curiosity kills a can I believe curiosity stimulates mind and encourage learning more..
