I Left Home as a Boy

written by: Lionel Ntasano



I left home as a boy
Came back as a man
I used to be quite coy
But now I am able to stand

I learned to show no pain and no mercy
Because this was my journey
By rod and lash I was punished
As the kid in me had painfully vanished

Lionel was born in the third smallest county in Africa, also, one of the most unknown countries in the world - Burundi. He has lived, traveled, and studied all over the globe, trying new things (Here), enjoying transient relationships (There), and safekeeping values from (Everywhere) - He is secretly a Beatles fan to say the least, a musician at heart, culinary chef by profession, but, George Orwell tapped into his unconscious mind liberating a part of him through literature. He has made it his lifetime goal to share this liberating abstract ideology by writing. His first attempt was by publishing a novel titled, 'Greener On The Other Side'.
