"Despair" A Poem By Salami Alimot Temitope — Pawners Paper

I sow seeds of hope: In the land of annihilation That devours dreams, Like a whale Swallows vulnerable fishes. A Poem By Salami Halimot Temitope

In Despair, Salami Alimot writes with a sad tone as the first two lines of each stanza depict the poet's sadness. The touches on every facet of reality in our societies, especially the happenings in the black continent where corruption, hunger, poor education and many others reside as she describes the land as "annihilation that scorches one's hope" and " swallowed dreams". She lays more emphasis on land to have the readers thoughts centred on the main theme of the poem, while they scrub the dust from its surface to have the indepth of the poem and the society.  She ends the poem with" weary eyes" as her " heart is left in despair"

In Despair, Salami Alimot does not only write but also preaches.

A crying lady, depression



DESPAIR

I sow seeds of hope:
In the land of annihilation
That devours dreams,
Like a whale 
Swallows vulnerable fishes.

I sow seeds of hope:
In the land of annihilation
That scorches one's hope,
Like a brutal fire
Scorches dreams to death.

I sow seeds of hope:
In the land of annihilation
Where many strives
While others drink from their sweats.

I sow seeds of hope:
In the land of annihilation
With my heart daunted
For my dreams,
Not to be eradicated
By callous hands.

Now,
The stupendous whale 
Has swallowed my dreams.

The brutal fire has scorched my hopes
Hot tears engulf my weary eyes,
My heart is left in despair.
