Like I Had No Mouth (Hibekay makes a Come-back!)

Like I had no mouth

IMG-20160812-WA0007

Asked and was not given
Always given to others instead
Like I had no mouth.

Beaten up and down
Bullied here and there
Like I had no mouth.

Called all sorts of names
Cheated like a baby
Like I had no mouth.

Dictating what they want
Denandng than I possess
Like I had no mouth.

Entangled when faithful
Eternity thought, not theirs’
Like I had no mouth.

Fighting for nothing
“Foolish fool” they called
Like I had no mouth.

Given less than I deserved
Grudge I never had
Like I had no mouth.

Holding fortune backward
Happy when sad
Like I had no mouth.

Impelled to decide
Intervened into personal issue
Like I had no mouth.

Justa has taken over
Junky is my worth
Like I had no mouth.

Killed in my presence
Kleptomaniac to my properties
Like I had no mouth.

Lied against back to back
Locust they are to truth crop
Like I had no mouth.

Moved from high to low
Made others above
Like I had no mouth.

Never sympathetic
Negligent instead
Like I had no mouth.

Opened secret
Overt privacy
Like I had no mouth.

Prayed for failure
Promised to ruin
Like I had no mouth.

Quarrel without offence
Qualm they never possess
Like I had no mouth.

Right and left
Ridiculed like novice
Like I had no mouth.

Slapped left and right
Sent back home
Like I had no mouth.

Tattered and tatty outfit
“Take it” they said
Like I had no mouth.

Upsy-daisy!
Upon all patience
Like I had no mouth.

Vexed than I could condone
Vicious to the apex
Like I had no mouth.

Where I put; I won’t see
What else will I do?
Like I had no mouth.

Xenophobia they had
Xylophone I played to vanish it
Like I had no mouth.

Years passed
Your hatred and maltreatment continue
Like I had no mouth.

Zoom my mission
Zealous with my Pen
Like I had no mouth.
