WHEN I’LL SING

Posted: February 13, 2017 by PaanLuel Wël in Poems.

By G. Naih Peter, Torit, South Sudan

When I decide to sing,
I’ll have so much
To say and match
Than in this poem.

When that time
Come, I hope all will be fine
To sing deep from heart
And home to the tune.

Killing goes before birth,

wars stands tall,

This is what Mummy told,

My tiny bones she would hold

Guiding me to modesty,

THE PRIZE FOR THE TWO

Posted: January 24, 2017 by PaanLuel Wël in Junub Sudan, Poems.

By G. Naih Peter, Torit, South Sudan

They were very good

friends until they realised

that the lady was so beautiful

to ignore or sit on fence.

Blame them not,

but ‘am much pitiful

Of them for all was gone

So far between them.

BUILT ON THE HILL

Posted: January 20, 2017 by PaanLuel Wël in Junub Sudan, Poems.

By G. Naih Peter, Torit, South Sudan

I saw them so involved,

Today in most crimes,

Making what they’d got dissolved,

But all I see is just a dime,

Nothing at all is solved.

She sees with eye so pale

When this Elysian wind burst the child wail,

Brother, brother what would this saturate

That the clouds look gloom and predate.

SOUTH SUDAN: UNKNOWN DESTINATION

Posted: January 1, 2017 by PaanLuel Wël in Poems.

By Wantonly Taara, Kampala, Uganda

PaanLuel Wël: South Sudanese Bloggers (SSB): The Best Articles, Writers, of the Year 2016

Unknown destination,

Unknown destination we lead,

We have been lost from the start,

Our path was denied,

Leaders divided.

We, Junubiin had hopes,

Invested in bloodshed yet achieved few,

Once we had a leader,

He led us to independence,

To depend on donors.

Will tribes save us from hunger?

Or clans from starvation?

Which leader give us condolence when mourning?

Unknown destination, unknown future,

Unknown leader, unknown problem,

But still moving, hoping to survive.

RUINED BY THE SUN [Part 1]

Posted: December 21, 2016 by PaanLuel Wël in Books, Poems., Wenne Madyt Dengs

By Wënnë Madyt Dengs, Juba, South Sudan

Ruined by the SUN, by Wënnë Madyt Dengs

Ruined by the SUN, by Wënnë Madyt Dengs

Lino,
Those lilies where my colors;
When I was a spice of your heart,
I spelled my dignity to whet your romance,
When the thunder stormed the knot of our hearts,
Making us lousy.
It shocked my nostril;
there I failed to smell the nectar of your affection.
Hatred had licked it clean,
No more stillness
I got drowned in distraction

I am no longer your wife
day and night,
I am the drum you beat
how do I sound
on the ears of your hand?
Does it give them peace?

Oh, and God forbids, Lino
I am not yielding,
I will not spit myself
on the mud off thoughts

For I was once the gazelle
of the meadows
and your heart the feet that stalked
it

Not this drum beaten
as time rolls

When will I be honey
never spat?
When will I be the mother
of your children,  Lino?

If this love is a stale path, Lino
let’s return the gazelle
to the meadows.

I am losing my eyes
inside this cave
it’s where clouds of cigar smoke
float
and your teeth are rusting

Your pals are jerks
one provokes a cough
when he yaps,
the other makes me weep
when he talks.

Hands!

You grouse yowling that Head lays hold filling up with food.

you say you get tired vibrating from plate to mouth like a bouncing ball.

If head always fill up with food in a second as you wish,

Won’t you wither and fall away like dead leaves in a winter?

Stop whining and do your part well!

Whining is being irresponsible Hand.

King Dunia

By Riak Marial Riak, Juba, South Sudan

Reverse…..

His wife vowed
And touched the streets
With her long arms,

She wept,
And washed her face with same tears
She looks at me and burst into tears.

Tell me,
Miss Dunia,
What have you seen from me?

Poetry “a road with two ends”

Posted: November 30, 2016 by PaanLuel Wël in Poems.

By Riak Marial Riak, Juba, South Sudan

November 30, 2016 (SSB) —- If you love the blow of the wind then call me a fool
For I have seen many directions the wind blows.

But one to my direction always tease
To throw you in a pool of chance or wrestle for peace.

I have eaten all that I desire
But neither of you have shown the interest to retire.

This song has a rhyme you will live seeking
Because it matters a lot when you give in.

THE REIGN OF SOUTH SUDAN

Posted: November 6, 2016 by PaanLuel Wël in Poems.

BY BUSH AKECH CHOL- NAIROBI, KENYA

Guns sounds from all cardinal of the Republic

Death became daily breads

Hatred sway away love for a nation

All is amiss, all is in pandemonium

The sun has fallen off the equator

Like love, cometh the dislike of a nation

Blood cometh the water of thirst

In our hearts arises anger

SOUTH SUDAN WAR CHILD

Posted: October 31, 2016 by PaanLuel Wël in Junub Sudan, Poems.

By Awuol Gabriel Arok, Juba, South Sudan

Trembling with fear, living on the predicament part of life,

Miserable war-child, thinking of tomorrow,

Looking deep into the earth horizon;

Death and sorrow he can see;

Innocent child, living on the remembrance,

Of the sorrowful past, feeding on the;

Upcoming curses of the future,

Gazing into the deep blue sky; only

Lovely birds engulf in the cloudy smoke of the sky-;

He can see;

Adeh! Sudan mother of the war child.

Oh! Beautiful snoop woman of Africa,
Beautiful and powerful you are;
Mother of the jungle son,

Fine Looking men of the world are our body guards;
I don’t blame them mother;
For your round shinny face has a magical appearance,

Kush words to her children

Posted: August 3, 2016 by PaanLuel Wël in Poems.

By Joe Mabor, Malaysia

Do you yawn for peace in the land?

Stop blowing own horns about your coerce to knockout your brother

And start preaching peace. Peace is the absence of war and violence.

Is unity what you really desire?

Stop complaining about the worst part of your brother

And start liking the best side of him,

This, both the worst parts disappear because love consumes them

 Like wild fire does to the forest of trees and grasses.
