🌹✍🏾POETRY’S – Francis Otole✍🏾🌹

IN MY NAME

a woman;
I bear shame in my name
yet they seek fame in my name.
I bear curse in my name
yet they seek cures in my name.
I bear caution in my name
yet they seek passion in my name.
I bear fire
but they see desire.
I bear strife
but they see life.
I bear warning
but they see warming.
I bear pressure
but they see pleasure.
I bear weakness
but they see sweetness.
I stand a woe man
but they see a woo man.
I bear pity
but they see beauty.
I bear broken image
but they see a pilgrimage.
