WHEN (2013 World Poetry Day Poem)

When [When]

When did these tears
Find their way into my lines?

When did this fear
Creep into my song?

When did I drink
From the cup of despair?

When did my tongue taste
The bile of sorrow?

I used to sing of roses
And smiling sunflowers

I used to know laughter
And all its tender melodies

Just when did I become
The calabash carrying tears?

When did I become
The singer of sad songs?
