SILENT METAPHOR

How can a man who can’t stand on his two feet 

Teach another  how to walk?

. . . he crawls on his hands and knees

How can a fire speak of the cold?

Now that’s a tale untold

The unanswered queries of many seeking guidance 

They’re hot lost because of defiance

Radiant blindness

Mixed with naive kindness

As an ant on the ground and a bird in the sky

One can’t teach the other to crawl or fly

Two worlds separated by the horizon of the mind.

 

* Enoka William Sewava Mulalira Kawuma & Kweku Shakespeare

Enoka is a Ugandan who lives in Abidjan. He enjoys making &  listening to music, playing basketball, writing and talking to women.
