Don’t Say You’ve Not Been Told | a poem by Uduak Uwah

Have you ever been judged

sentenced without even a word?

Was it by the people you loved

due to a truth they couldn’t afford?

 

Did they number your sorrows

or just your flaws?

Did they notice the chaos

that bred the wars?

 

Did you gather all you own

ready to vacate your mind?

Or did you prefer to sell your soul

in other to safeguard your mind?

 

Some days might just be cold

don’t say you’ve not been told.
