Zafira, Age 12, Nairobi, Kenya

A silent, brooding heart sleeps
A poignant, tearful face weeps
Betrayal, loyalty and trust
Three different layers, a forming crust
Now quite rotten
Yet only two remain forgotten
The layer of Betrayal stays intact
It hungrily seeks victims: a well-known fact.
And it is quite successful in that search
Which in turn leads you to lean over, lurch
Anger, so strong
A hot temper- clutches you for too long
Fury strangles, you are unable to breathe,
Instead you merely grit your teeth......
The hurting pain
The unbearable disdain
Different feelings felt for different people
This triggers an abrupt, emotional ritual
Sobs- they try to be trapped
For happiness has been easily kidnapped.
