I know you always asking me to read your posts
To tell you how great you write, but
The day you will start writing for me
Is the day I will start reading your posts
Still waiting for that day, the one you will start writing for people like me
The voiceless and the hopeless in society
The heartbroken, the mentally ill
The materially poor, can’t afford a meal
Tell me, have you ever written for the trees?
The rivers, the soil, the rain or the crops?
Have you ever written a poem for the water lilies?
But they’re struggling too, aren’t they?
That lion or elephant in Masai Mara, ever thought about him in your moments
The crows, the hawks, the noisy hornbill, owls and other birds of the air
The cattle, rabbits, chicken and all the livestock family
Think about how life would be without them
But you’ve given a blind eye to everything that matters
Life itself, only choosing to write non issues
What Kim Kardashian was wearing today
Why Nick Minaj broke up with Meek Mill
The Al shabaab, the Boko Haram and the ISIS are bombing up our friends and family
Bad politics is hurting our economy
Hurting our country, our continent and the world at large
North Korea so proud to display its nuclear weapons, is it preparing for war?
I know I’m asking too much of you son
Just write me one of these and you’ll be the best under the sun
It’s not that I’m too demanding, just want the world better
Write anything that will make the world better and swear to read your posts
