true colors

true colors

A Poem by tanaka chirombo

talks of someone turning their back on someone some some heart is broken so he complains


I wonder why you have changed over sudden

Is it that your true colours were hidden?

You have done one big mistake

As you have shown your self fake


Now you think you’re on top of the world

But in reality I would describe you with a word

Horrible terrible broken table is what you do

As some people who look at you say you’re a fool


Why did you find it hard at first to tell me?

It is easy for a girl to say “don’t love me”

If I was to be dragon fly

I would have left and flown in the sky


You say that I am fourteen

Although all you did was to put yourself in a bin

Beautiful is what you look

Away my happiness you took


Now you wonder about and sit looking in the ceiling

You have damaged a good friendship which will bring bad feeling

Since you let go of a good chance

You will suffer as if you wet your pants


Lastly I tried my best

But you did nothing less

Now it’s the right time for me to depart

As everything of yours falls apart
