Why Oh why!

written by: Donna Africa

Why oh why
to be given
such a passionate
ravenous &
roaring heart,
if not to give love
and to be loved
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given
luscious red lips
if not to smooch & kiss
as this is my desire & wish
to be tenderly kissed
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given
loving open arms
if not to embrace
cocoon & caress
to hold tightly
as never to let go
united & whole as one
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given deep blue eyes
if not to see the truth
transparency
to weep, cry & rejoice
for all humankind
without asking why?

Why oh why
to be given
ears if not to listen
intensely to a whisper
and to be heard
above the cacophony
madness and noise
that plagues and rules
the earth today
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given hands
if not to give a hand up
not a hand out
to raise, lift & ascend
our fellow man
soul and spirit
to the very top
I ask myself why?

Why of why
to be given a voice
if silenced & muted
unable to have your
human rights or say
as told to behave
without just cause
rhyme and reason
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given six senses
a gift from our ancestors
and from up above
if not to exert
and employ them all
to see, feel and heal
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given
a pair of legs
if not to stride
walk tall & with pride
to try & get ahead
I ask myself why?

Why oh why
to be given a dream
to a dreamer like me
who ardently believes
and perceives all her dreams
to become a reality
as driven & inspired
buried deep down
in her very soul
if not to be able
to achieve and to make true
I let out an exasperated
and frustrated cry
and have to ask myself
Why oh why??

NOVEMBER 2016 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
I call myself Donna Africa "The Queen of Dreams" as I relocated from my homelands and motherland Africa to the UK in 2004 to realise and conquer my dreams of yesteryear today!
I was inspired to write poetry by Rodriguez (Cold Fact Fame) Keats (when I sat under the Plum Tree) and Shaka Zulu famous King & warrior and renown for uniting all the tribes as ONE!
I hope my poems inspire and connect as one as this is my dream, vision and life journey!
With Luv, Light and Liberty!
