The Journey Begins Here!

Poet!K Flavour is a blog for upcoming African poets to share their work with the world. The blog features poems on Africa, life, nature, friendship, Love,...and everything that people care about.

This year, the best poems featured on this blog will be compiled and published in a single poetry book and the proceeds from sold copies shall be donated to charity within Africa.

This is a project for charity, get involved, join as a poet, tell friends, post comments, follow this blog,…take a step to solving the problems in your society….if you believe that Africa is not as it should be, join Poetik Flavor, the journey begins here!

To join as a poet and obtain blogging rights, contact the blog founder Imran Nakueira, be sure to send two sample poems and an Email Adress.

Being a charity project, poets will not be paid for any of their works published in the final edited collection. Poets with works appearing will however be credited for their work and, of course, receive at least one copy of the final publication. No poems will be reprinted without the permission of the poet. More info about the final publication will be layed out at the appropriate time. Thank you.

The Widowed Bride

Now that the price is met,
The masculine voice shall not be upset.
Am bound by the bridal duty,
And must soonest accept
The man whose name I know barely.

I must obey father.
Sadly, I feel more lonely now than ever,
My heart longs for another.
My soul mate and caring lover
In whose eyes I am priceless,
Who will cherish me, as a princess.

I lay here, crying each night,
Hoping, that somehow you will hear,
That you will come steer my pain clear
I still wait, but you are not yet in sight.
You are more dear to me,
Than the man father gives my hand,
You reside in my heart and mind,
It is such a shame,
You do not exist outside them.
