Slavery Of The Mind – David Chukwudi Njoku

I am a slave to my mind,
I am a prisoner of hope,
I am a depressed servant,
oppressed by addiction
addiction of confusion
such confusion of damnation.

I am bonded to my mind
lust of fleshy cravings.
I am enslaved by the offer
of unending revellings
such revellings of stupidity.

I am the first begotten of slavery,
I am married to convenience
of my lustful desires,
I am still in manifest of slavery,
standing before a road of
nowhere…
who shall rescue me…?
