The portrait of my thoughts


Art by Mezay Ugbo


Deaf I am to all flattery,

but blind I am not.


My brain churns all day

though the past I’ve forgotten.

Lack I the inner eye to prophesy;

it thus aides me to the top.


I keep busy running necessary errands

and seldom go yonder.

The world needs not the proud but the potent,

as the lone ranger, in the desert, needs not the mirage but water.


You see, my mouth is shut

but my actions speak.
