I've reaped the treasure of silence
into prominence of creative flame
poetry is an erection of thoughts
stirred behind the wheel of the mind

I'm a solitary poet of African nation
I'm like a swinging of a pendulum
thoughts in me vibrates to - and- fro
that's why am delivering it to you all

in silence I lay with great solemnity
that's why I'm thoughtfully crafted
with revelations of poetic language
heralding to the ears of all people

time shall come when I shall depart
'fore then, I shall encrypt my words
through the seal of literary devices
making eavesdropping impossible

I like the imagery here.

“poetry is an erection of thoughts” now there is an image….

In reaching out to the people, not just those around you, good work there.

I really like that. The whole poem is excellent but that last stanza really completes the idea. Very strong poem.
