The mental chains

It is difficult being a man!!!!
Time and seasons, I do respect
Avoiding the spills and the stress
Using tricks failure thought success.

I put blames on another clan
Accusing them for all my flaws
Even when obviously my claws
Were the ones at fault breaking laws.

Though my body and mind are one
We have never been on same page
No matter how we try on stage
We always forget our real image.

I no longer believe I can
Evade the spills and move further
Because my chains are far stronger
Than their weakest links and binders.

Haiku: All but Wakanda

So sad, slave trade nicked
Africa into Marvel’s
Pit of Wakanda.

Far from the wild

I am a bird perching walls and Patio grass
I sing sweet songs, pleasant ears, all love to hear
I flap my wings, no fire tongs or tangs of snakes…

The greens I perch but you decided to set a trap
Chewing my toes, it all feels like a cramp
What good is there in trapping me in fancy cages

Feeding me trash of processed meals, knowing so well
That I will not sing to my best or flap freely
In a synthetic habitat far from the wild.
