Ally Fred Skin Poems
- 1. Same Day Different Times
On that rainy day the lep crawled,
for days it's been sessile.
How splendours is the world,
and you can barely move a mile?
- 2. This Song In Your Name
A name I'll live to recite like a love poem,
I'll sing your name like it's a sweet hymn.
I'll dance to the rythm of this song,
Promise me you'll always sing along.
- 3. In The Sonnets Of My Biographical Wall
On the Taita Hills, from my mom’s womb I come,
It’s freezing, every morning is ice cold.
In a small rock-made house and a farm to call home,
Where 4 brothers’ and a sister’s arms will hold.
- 4. I Can't Breath
I run and run, trying to get away,
I flee on sight, terrified to death.
I know I'm innocent but not okay,
I'm out of air officer, I can't breath.
- 5. Happy Birthday!
Sharp air in my fragile nostrils, I'd smell freedom,
My closed eyes could hardly see the light.
Can't tell how big was the ransom,
But I recall the sensational bliss it brought.
- 6. The Fate Of The Inevitable
When you'll wake up that morning,
The sun's far from the sky,
With your head turned gray,
For all the years of growing.
- 7. A Beautiful Ray Of Certainty
Please show me what you really are,
'Cause you're not anything close to a human.
Just don't tell me you're from far,
Unless by far you mean angels in heaven.
- 8. Guttersnipe
The cold and long nights couldn't get any less brutal,
Impact of the hard pavement with the ill-covered skin grew unbearable.
Sunny and rainy days were both worse.
He's only 10 and his health is critically impaired
