Fatal 2: ‘MRS. ONYECHE’
Doctors mirror out same results
Family dwells in awkward silence
Night so cold, slow like snail steps
Days are awaken with past memoirs
So painful; yet….. We watched you go.
Doctor’s epics in white stay alive
modified nostrils size like Elephants
Growling, snorting, and roaring,
crying everyone’s tears
No more new toys for the wide parlour floor
So painful; yet in our arms you chose to go.
Doctor’s epic, hidden is the truth
Hopeful for recovery you sat and lay
Unaware, essence of time is making no sense
Children cry, if God would alter, trading the tears
For it was so painful to watch you go.
