POEM| Tired of Being Your Slave

The days I need you
you punish me
suffer me with waiting
and choose when you want to show up

The days I pretend
not to be bothered by you
you control my every move
until I am succumbed by you

It’s unfair
that I need you
on almost all the days in the year
and I’m unable to control you or win your love

I am tired
of you being the boss of me
and I need to learn how to
become your master

Mariam Shittu

Can you guess what I wrote about?

UPDATE: I wrote about SLEEP.

Hi, my name is Mariam Shittu and I live in Lagos, Nigeria. I’m a poet, but I also write about my travels, places in Lagos, my lifestyle and things that inspire me. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with the world and nurturing the human mind. Thanks for stopping by!
