Pangs of Sorrow | Tolu’ Akinyemi | Poetry

Adeoti’s lifeless body,

laid still like an effigy.‬

‪The cries from the depth of his soul reverberated the atmosphere.‬

‪The dreary sky wore the colour of intense grief:

Burning red.‬

‪He can tell the smell of death;

the grief planted in his face illuminates the pangs of its sorrow.
