A Poem by Victor Warui

Sometimes I question what they said to what I've become.

Mamma you said;
When I grow, like star I'll glow.
Like pro, I'll e'er succeed, always.
Mamma you said;
A lodestar, I'll proceed to find love.
Like a dove, she'll be adorable.

Mamma you said;
Every stumble, like phoenix I'll rise.
Any broken crisis, my hands will fix.
Mamma you said;
Like a fairy, am the cutest and
Like a king, I'll be the bravest.

What happened Mamma?
Now, my dull life competes gay in gray.
My losses likens loosers' luminaries bright.
What happened Mamma?
Love life ain't alive nor ever existed.
Am insistent but the queer ones, kills.

What happened Mamma?
Hard is the fall, in every lurch I crumble.
Like trouble, anything my hand touches, dies.
Why the lies Mamma?
I came all wrong, worst of creation, says they.
Have I no place? A coward I cry everyday.

Anything Mamma, say something.
Did you have to lie the dark lies?
Were there no signs am useless?
What happened Mamma? Am clueless!
