The Wordings of his first poem

Don’t think that am scared of your faces
or that’s obvious
That am nervous cos am not-see This! Body frame isn’t me,
Me is inside me-so
You looking at me can’t see me But listen with your eyes and
See with your mind the real me

You can with ease,
Ease your mind and find
A space to accept that
Maturity is in the mind -see
You can be a king to
Subjects of complacency- but
Please please and please,
Let not your actions and
In actions prevent me-this
Will of change cos
When christ said
…be like little children,
It wasn’t about the size
