BE STRONG

(for my sisters, Annie and Rosarii Ngohide Gberikon)

At grief’s graze

Be strong

Deferring death’s despair

The inconsolable loss

Losing us in a haze…

Be strong

Cry the wells of emotions away

The best way to many miseries slay

But stand forth on

The glory of the sun

Reminding us

It could have been worse…

Boki wam, at grief’s despairing graze

Truly, be strong

It might seem nature’s haze

But we are made stronger

If only we don’t despair longer

Than right. Be strong.
