In the deep;
In the midst of rivers of many waters
      I found myself

I sailed when the winds were turbulent
       And the waves rage

I set out on an unknown course
      Without a compass nor a map

I hurt comfort by leaving her zone
And  betraying her trust.

The bridge had fallen before my arrival
At the cross over point

Yea,I find no shelter from this paralyzing
           And contagious cold,
Neither do I find fire for warmth

I paid for a roasted chicken
   But I was served bile

I hunted earnestly for elephants
   But mongoose was all I got

Vinegar became the wine
I now savour,
And ammonia the perfume l wore

I sought for a companion
But fierce woes were those that
encompassed me

My peaceful haven became
An abode of lion and scorpion.

I became a victim of desires,
Thrown into the fire burning without sulphur
  In the name of passion,
And for the sake of the future .
