AFFLICTION By Mujaheeda Olorunju Zakariyyah

Written by Editor

A loner like him deserves a clone.
He has won many hearts with just a tone.
He is majestic and have a lot of charisma.
Like the moon and the stars, his life is full of fans.

To the outside world, he is a keeper.
He kept all close but never goes deeper.
He feels lonely but always a helper.
With his smile of love, he hides his cry of affliction.

With all his bravery, he turns to be hurt.
Behind closed doors he cry his heart out.
If only the earth could open Her eyes to see,
And bring forth happiness to this man who stood aloof.
